If there is something missing in the team of Manchester United, is the presence of a midfield schemer/playmaker that has the ability to retain possession and tear opposing defenses with his passes.
Ander Herrera and Juan Mata are quite creative but they lack the charisma and the finesse with which a creative midfielder plays and so, Jose Mourinho could do with one more creative midfielder.
Hirving Lozano, a Mexican starlet dubbed as the new Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move to Old Trafford when the transfer market comes alive in the summer, per report.
Lozano, 21, currently plays for Pachuca in Mexico, but he has been a toast of several top European clubs following his blistering form for club. He has netted 18goals in 27games even though he plays mainly from the right wing – Lyon, Benfica, Inter Milan and other clubs are vying for his signature but he has admitted that he would prefer a move to Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, United have had their scouts watching the exciting versatile winger/midfielder and he told Unvision that Old Trafford is his preferred destination.
“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.”
Lozona can play in the no.10 role and on the flanks. His skills and vision has seen him compared to Coutinho who offers creative threats for Liverpool
United must be looking to seal a deal for Lozano because he has been tipped to be a big star sooner.
