Man United to sign Mexico winger after Olympics, says star’s father-in-law

Hiriving Lozano will complete a move to Man United after the Olympic Games, according to his father-in-law

Manchester United will sign Mexico international Hirving Lozano after this summer’s Olympic Games, according to the midfielder’s father-in-law.

The Red Devils have already signed two players in the summer transfer window since Jose Mourinho was named as Louis van Gaal’s successor at Old Trafford in May.

United wrapped up a deal for Ivory Coast and Villarreal defender Eric Bailly before Zlatan Ibrahimovic put pen to paper on a contract with the 20-time English champions over the weekend.

Mourinho continues to be linked with a host of summer targets as he prepares for his first season as manager at Old Trafford.

United have reportedly made contact with Pachuca about Lozano as European interest grows in the 20-year-old ahead of the new season.

And the youngster’s father-in-law has now claimed that his daughter – who is married to the Mexican starlet – will move to England with her partner after this summer’s Olympic Games, which finishes on Sunday 21 August.

“Yes. It [the move to United] is all done, just missing some final details and after the Olympics, the deal will become official,” Lozano’s father-in-law is quoted as saying by Futbol Entre Lineas.
