Manchester United could make a move for Napoli attacker Hirving Lozano when he leaves the Serie A club next summer, according to a transfer report.
The Lowdown: Lozano set for Napoli exit in 2023
The 27-year-old’s current deal with the Azzurri doesn’t expire until 2024 but it could be that he exits next year, having not always been a key player in recent times.
Lozano first earned widespread attention during the 2018 World Cup, when his performances for Mexico caught the eye as he scored one goal (the winner against Germany) and set up another at the tournament.
The Latest: Man United linked with Lozano
“Next June, Lozano will leave in my opinion, also because he earns over 4 million at Napoli.
“Although he is delighted to be here, he has never hidden that he aspired to the top English clubs, although now he is probably realising that Napoli itself is a top club.
“He has never hidden that he loves Barcelona and Real Madrid, but unless Ancelotti falls in love with him again, he has no market. I think he could land in Manchester United or Everton. This does not exclude that other English teams could enter the negotiation.
“My personal prediction is that he will leave in June, but he is very happy here.”
The Verdict: Good squad option?
Lozano might not necessarily come in as someone who could take United’s starting line-up to the next level in 2023/24, but he could be a great squad signing.
He possesses quick feet and end product in wide areas, not to mention plentiful experience which has seen him earn 58 caps for Mexico, so he could be a shrewd prospective addition.
Is Maguire good enough for Manchester United?
Yes, he's just having a bad time!
No, he needs to go!
Attack is still an area of United’s team in need of reinforcements, with Cristiano Ronaldo ageing and often ignored, Anthony Martial injury-prone and Marcus Rashford linked with a move away, and Lozano would perhaps give it an injection of fresh quality and unpredictability.
