Club President Reveals United Were Interested In Mexican Attacker

During the summer, Hirving Lozano’s potential arrival to Manchester United was a big hit among the crazy transfer rumours, but as usual, the so-called almost done deal collapsed and the transfer never happened.

Initially, reports linked his father-in-law’s quotes about his move to England, followed by his father confirming the reports, and lastly, the player himself talked about it. But after Pachuca president Jesus Martinez ruled out any potential transfer business, things seemed all quiet on the western front.

But it has all started again! The Pachuca president himself has just reignited the rumour. In an interview with Fox Sports (via Goal), Martinez revealed Manchester United were actually chasing the 21-year-old for a while.

He was quoted as saying: “I talked to him, I talked with his representatives and they came to deliver this offer from Spain.

“In order to clarify, he’s not going away right now because of the family situation. All of us in the board think that if he goes to Spanish or English football, he can develop better. He’s been been followed by Manchester United for three years.

“PSV let us know via telephone, just like Benfica, we are also looking for something more serious because of the issue of the intermediates. There was something concrete from Spain, so we will sit in six months.”

Lozano has scored 15 goals along with 6 assists in 21 appearances for Pachuca this term, and these recent stats no doubt aren’t being ignored in Europe.

But do Manchester United really want the player? Well, that’s a different ball game altogether. It’s true that the club sends scouts all over the world to watch young talents, but very few of them end up receiving an offer.
