Manchester United appear to be interested in bringing Pachucha striker Hirving Lozano into the fold, but a deal with Liga MX giants Pachuca appear to be a bit farther off.
According to the Metro, Pachuca president Andres Fassi confirmed that negotiations between his club and Man United for Lozano are ongoing but no deal has been reached yet.
‘Already there is negotiations with that team (Man United)? Yes,’ Fassi said.
‘There is still nothing closed though.’
Lozano has scored 33 goals in 122 appearances for Pachuca. He helped the club claim the Liga MX Clausura title in 2016, earning Best XI honors in the process.
On the international level, Lozano has been a force for Mexico’s various Under- squads. In 2015 he won the Golden Boot in the CONCACAF Under-20 championship en route to Best XI honors in that tournament too. He also won the Golden Ball in the CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship.
In 2010, Manchester United signed a young striker from Mexico named Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez, who went on to score 33 league goals in his first three seasons with the Red Devils and 59 total goals over his first four seasons before being phased out of the team.
