  • Mexico international could move to Old Trafford after the Olympic Games.

Hirving Lozano has admitted he is "excited" about a summer move to Manchester United, after Pachuca vice-president Andres Fassi revealed the club is in talks to sell the Mexico international to Old Trafford. The 20-year-old has hailed Jose Mourinho as a "great coach", while talking up the possibility of playing alongside the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The winger has garnered a reputation as one of the best young prospects in Mexican football in his four seasons with Pachuca, scoring 23 goals and laying on a further 21 in 103 appearances despite his tender years. He represented his country at the recent Copa America and is set to feature for El Tri at the upcoming Rio Olympics.

His development has attracted the attention of a number of European clubs, with Fassi recently revealing the Red Devils had stepped up negotiations to secure his services.

Lozano's father-in-law later suggested United have already agreed a deal with Pachuca, and the move will be made official following the Olympics.

"It's all done," he said, as quoted by Sky Sports. "It's just missing some details and then after the Olympics it becomes official."

Lozano has now revealed Pachuca have said nothing to him over any deal, but admitted that he would love to move to England.

"Of course the idea [playing for Manchester United] excites me. They are a great team and [to make this into a reality] I must give my best," Lozano said to Mexican publication Esto En Linea.


"It's nice that teams like [Manchester United] target you and I think I have to keep doing things right to continue on the radar of these kind of teams," Lozano added.

The winger added that he was focused on doing his best in Brazil, but was clearly excited about the possibility of working with Mourinho and Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford.

"[Mourinho] is a great coach and [Ibrahimovic] is one of the best strikers in the world. But first it is necessary to speak with Pachuca and then will see the rest," he concluded.
