Manchester United are on the verge of completing a move for exciting winger Hirving Lozano. The Mexico international's club Pachuca confirmed talks are taking place, and the talented attacker has admitted he is excited about the prospect of playing in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho has been busy since being named the new Manchester United manager. He made Eric Bailly his first signing, after reportedly agreeing to pay around £25million to Villarreal. Then a bigger ego than even the manager landed when Zlatan Ibrahimovic agreed to finally make his immense presence felt in the Premier League.
Manchester United's third signing is set to be that of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who is close to completing a £30m move from Borussia Dortmund.
Now, Manchester United are set to seal the deal for a highly-rated youngster in Lozano, who was impressive for Mexico in the recently-concluded Copa America Centenario.
Lozano's current club Pachuca confirmed talks have taken place with Manchester United, even if no move has been agreed upon yet.
"Already there are negotiations with United," the Mexican club's vice-president Andres Fassi was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. "There is still nothing closed though."
Lozano's father-in-law, however, believes a transfer has been agreed upon and will be announced officially at the end of the Rio Olympics.
"It's all done," he said. "Just missing some details and then after the Olympics it becomes official."
It does look like the move is as good as done, with the player himself expressing his happiness at the prospect of playing in one of the best leagues in the world.
"Of course the idea [playing for Manchester United] excites me," Lozano was quoted as saying by the Metro. "They are a great team and [to make this into a reality] I must give my best.
"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, who is a pacy wide man, full of tricks, is particularly excited to work under Jose Mourinho, while the chance to play alongside Ibrahimovic is another aspect that is bringing a smile to his face.
"[Mourinho] is a great coach and [Ibrahimovic] is one of the best strikers in the world," he added.
