Hirving Lozano has played down reports of a move to Manchester United, despite reportedly being on the verge of a move.
Pachuca, the Mexican winger’s club, confirmed last month that the Premier League champions had approached them over Lozano’s availability.
When asked about United’s interest last week, the winger said: “Of course the thought of playing for Manchester United excites me, and I need to give it my all.”
And Lozano’s father-in-law appeared to confirm the move was near completion when stating: “Yes. It’s all done, just missing some details and after the Olympics, the deal will become official.”
The player himself also admitted he was excited to link up with Jose Mourinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford.
However, in a rapid reversal, the 20-year-old has now played down claims of his imminent move, and is simply concentrating on his future with Pachuca.
“It’s nice to hear people talk about a potential move to Manchester United, but it would have been better if it was actually a fact,” he told Mexican newspaper Record.
“I don’t know anything about United’s interest. If the club tell me anything, then we will see, but I don’t know anything about it at this stage.
“I am at Pachuca now and we will see what happens in the future.”
