The father-in-law of Mexican winger Hirving Lozano has said a deal for him to join Manchester United is all done and will be announced after the Olympics in August.
Lozano, 20, has been scouted by Man United’s chief scout Jim Lawlor this summer andapproaches were made at the start of June from United.
Now, Lozano’s relative indicates that deal has been finalised and according to Futbol Entre Lineas, terms have all been agreed.
“Yes. It’s all done, just missing some details and after the Olympics, the deal will become official,” Lozano’s father-in-law explained.
Lozano made four appearances for Mexico in the 2016 Copa America tournament and although they went out with a terrible 7-0 loss to Chile, it’s great experience for a player who is so young.
Javier Hernandez is the only Mexican to have played for United but any deal for Lozano will bear similarities to when we signed Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez. It might not have worked out for Angelo but the arrival of another young South American talent will always be welcomed.
Any deal for Lozano may end up seeing him loaned straight back out for another season because he wouldn’t get much game time this year under Jose Mourinho.
