Whilst the club’s league season is set to peter out with an underwhelming puff of smoke, Manchester United’s summer is set to be all the more action packed as the world biggest stars find themselves connected to the monied Premier League giants.
Much of the focus will no doubt be in the retrieval of Atletico’s French talisman Antoine Griezmann, however, a certain Mexican striker with bags of potential has signalled a come and get me plea to Jose Mourinho and the upper hierarchy of the club.
Making waves with Mexican side Pachuca since his introduction in 2013, 21-year old Hirving Lozano spoke about his potential future in English football, namely with the record Premier League winners.
“I believe many [leagues] are beautiful, I like the English and the Spanish very much. But let’s see how things are and decide. Lozano told Univision
“The one I would like most is Manchester, I like this club a lot and it’s a very important club.”
Firing in an impressive 18 goals in 27 appearances for his current club this season, Lozano has gone on to become a name stay for Mexico’s international side – collecting 13 caps and a single goal in the process.
A pacey left sided attacker with a clear eye for goal and a rocket of a right foot, Lozano would be the second most famous Mexican to don the red shirt – the original and best, of course, being Javier Hernandez.
Hernandez to return?
Since the Louis Van Gaal criminally let the Little Pea leave for Leverkusen for a cut price, Hernandez has gone on to net a superb 27 goals in 50 appearances for Bayer, form that has grabbed the attention of the club’s current manager.
Recently Mourinho had the following to say about the poacher.
“We have some players that are not really players in love with the goal, They are good players, they are creative players, they can create, but naturally they are not the kind of guy that is a killer.
“I give you a simple example. In the way we play at Old Trafford, in the way we dominate opponents in the way we play in their box, I think Chicharito would have 20 goals easy.
“Even coming from the bench for the last 10 or 20 minutes, he will have 20 goals.
