23-year-old PSV star prefers Man United over Chelsea

Chelsea target Hirving Lozano has admitted his admiration for Manchester United as rumours continue to link him with a move to England.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, after PSV’s 2-1 loss to Tottenham in the Champions League, Hirving Lozano was questioned on his future after being heavily linked with moves away over the summer transfer window. When asked about the teams he enjoyed watching as a kid, the 23-year-old responded:

“I liked Manchester United a lot. In Spain my favourite team is Barcelona.”

Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Everton were all understood to be keen on the player over the summer. It had been claimed that Maurizio Sarri was also keen to bring the player to his new club to reinforce his attack.

The versatile winger was one of the more in-demand players during the previous summer window. A stand-out Eredivisie season was followed up by an impressive World Cup campaign for Mexico, and a host of clubs were interested in signing the attacker.

In the end, he decided to stay at PSV but is likely to attract interest from many clubs over the coming months.
