Hirving Lozano is all set to be a Manchester United player and will sign a contract with the Red Devils after Mexico’s Rio Olympics 2016 campaign.
The winger has been linked with a move to Old Trafford after impressing for his club Pachuca. The 20-time English champions are not the only side looking to secure his services as his form has seen him attract interest from clubs across Europe.
Lozano’s club form saw him make it to the 2016 Copa America Centenario with Mexico, where his side suffered a 7-0 humiliating defeat at the hands of eventual winners Chile in the quarter-final. He made four appearances in the tournament, which included two starts.
According to Futbol Entre Lineas, the 20-year-old will move to England after agreeing terms with the Premier League giants. The Mexican international confirmed the deal has been sealed, but his move to United will only be completed after the Olympics.
“Yes. It’s all done, just missing some details and after the Olympics, the deal will become official,” Lozano explained.
Earlier in June, Pachuca vice-president Andres Fassi confirmed the winger has been subject to several offers from England, Spain and other top European leagues.
“There have been approaches. There will be time to focus on the future of Hirving Lozano,” ESPN reported Fassi as saying.
“There is a situation of confidentiality for 30 days with 12 teams. They are evaluating, looking at options, making plans, but I cannot say anything else. Three of the 12 teams are better placed, that is all we can say – due to the confidentiality clauses in place.”
“Pachuca, for several years, has a structure of great relationship with many teams in England, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and Germany. Some agreements allow the players to go to Europe in the future.”
United have already completed the signing of Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic so far this summer. In addition to this, Borussia Dortmund have confirmed they have agreed a fee with the Red Devils for Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan to complete his Old Trafford switch.
The arrival of the Swedish striker and Mkhitaryan will only add more fire power to Jose Mourinho’s side. Their addition to the squad will be a massive boost for both United and the Portuguese tactician as he looks to help the Red Devils return to the top.
