Pachuca forward Hirving Lozano has cooled speculation that he is on the verge of joining Manchester United this summer.
Jose Mourinho was only appointed as Louis van Gaal‘s sucessor last month, but has already completed the deals of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
The Portuguese boss has recently stated in his first press conference that the club are keen to sign a fourth player in the weeks to come before he is allowed to rest.
Speaking about a potential transfer, Lozano insists it would nice if rumours of an Old Trafford move were true.
“First I have to be here at Pachuca and then we’ll see where we go,” he said.
“It’s very nice that people are saying these things, but it would be better if it was a fact. I don’t know about that, the board will tell me if it is or not, but right now I don’t know anything”.
United were thought to be closing in on landing his services after the Pachuca vice-president and the player’s father-in-law suggested a deal was on the cards.
He made four appearances for his country in last month’s Copa America in the United States, where they were knocked out 7-0 by Chile.
Reports suggested Lozano could be United’s next new arrival, but with the 20-year-old unaware of any potential transfer, it doesn’t look like a deal could be reached in the next coming days.
