MANCHESTER UNITED have expressed an interest in Pachuca winger Hirving Lozano, according to the Mexican club.
Officials from Pachuca confirmed to the Daily Mail that the Premier League giants are one of a number of clubs to have enquired about their 20-year-old.
Pachuca vice-president Andres Fassi said: “There have been approaches. There will be time to focus on the future of Hirving Lozano.
“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.”
Lozano, who came through Pachuca’s youth system, has already made 103 appearances for the first-team, scoring 29 times – an impressive strike rate for a winger.
His form has been recognised by national selectors who gave him his debut in February and he is currently with Mexico at the Copa America.
United actually showed interest in the youngster before Jose Mourinho was recently appointed as manager – they had scouts making regular checks throughout last season.
Interestingly, Pachuca sporting director Marco Garces has previous history with the English club.
It was he who alerted United to another promising young Mexican in Javier Hernandez, who went on to play well over 100 games for the Red Devils, winning two Premier League titles.
