Pachuca striker Hirving Lozano has admitted he would love to join Manchester United in the future.

The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past year after Pachuca club president admitted that the Red Devils had made an approach for their starlet.

A transfer never materialised, but the youngster, who admitted his excitement to team up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jose Mourinho last year, has reaffirmed his desire to join the Premier League side.

Speaking to Univision, the striker said: “I believe many leagues are beautiful. I like the English and the Spanish very much.

“But let’s see how things are and decide. The one I would like most is Manchester.

“I like this club a lot and it’s a very important club.”

Left-sided forward Lozano has scored 40 goals in 138 appearances for Pachuca since his debut for the club in 2014.

The youngster represented his country’s under-23 side that took part in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero and has since progressed to the full national side, making 13 appearances, scoring once.

Mourinho is expected to busy in the summer transfer window and the Portuguese boss has hinted he will be ruthless in the market to transform his side into legitimate title contenders.

“What we have now is not bad at all but if you ask me how far we are from having the team I want, it’s far,” Mourinho said. “Very far.

“We had just one transfer window. We didn’t use the second one. We need a transfer window again. Definitely, we need to improve, in terms of our squad.”
