Hirving Lozano is in the dark about a potential move to Manchester United. The Mexican winger has been heavily linked with a money-spinning move to the Premier League giants in recent weeks, but has revealed he is unaware of United's reported interest.
Lozano, who has scored 21 goals in 91 appearances for Mexican side Pachuca, is considered to be one of his country's most exciting young talents and recently featured in their Copa America campaign. But the speedy winger has insisted he is not on the verge of signing for United, as has been widely reported.
"It's nice to hear people talk about a potential move to Manchester United, but it would have been better if it was actually a fact," the reported United transfer target told Mexican website record.com. "I don't know anything about United's interest. If the club tell me anything, then we will see, but I don't know anything about it at this stage."
Despite this, Lozano refused to completely rule out the prospect of joining United or another European club in the future. "I am at Pachuca now and we will see what happens in the future," he said amid the United links.
Lozano's remarks come shortly after new United boss Jose Mourinho admitted he was looking to make one more "fundamental" signing before the start of the new season, with reports suggesting his preferred option would be Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. However, the Premier League-winning coach also admitted there could be "supplementary" moves at Old Trafford if other players leave the club.
"You can imagine, first game of the season, I don't pick somebody, they get disappointed, they have the chance to go to another club, and somebody is feeling that they are not fundamental, they leave, so somebody has to come in," the United manager explained during his introductory press conference.
