Manchester United have made an approach for Mexico starlet Hirving Lozano, according to the vice-president of the player's current club Pachuca.
Lozano, 20, is currently on international duty at the Copa America, helping his side to a 3-1 victory over Uruguay on Sunday 5 June. Despite his tender years, the winger has already made over 100 appearances for his club and has already been scouted on a number of occasions by United.
Pachuca have already been contacted by the Old Trafford club, according to vice-resident Andres Fassi, who expects the player to join a European club in the very near future.
When asked about interest from United, Fassi told Record: "There have been approaches. There will be time to focus on the future of Hirving Lozano. For several years Pachuca has had great relationships with many teams of England, in Portugal, in Spain, in France, in Italy and in Germany.
"There are some agreements that allow the player to go to Europe in the future."
United have already made some big moves in the transfer market following the appointment of Jose Mourinho in May. Villarreal defender Eric Bailly appears poised to become the club's first major arrival of the summer. According to the Daily Mail, the 22-year-old arrived at the club on Tuesday 7 June to undergo a medical ahead of a proposed £30m move.
While they did not name United as the club, Villarreal have confirmed there has been transfer talks. "There is a team that is very interested and if the three parties agree there will be no problems," Villarreal chief Fernando Roig Nogueroles said, according to Marca. "If the player wants to leave and Manchester are interested and pay, we will reach an agreement."
