Jose Mourinho looks to be taking a page from Sir Alex Ferguson’s playbook in setting his sights on Mexico for talent.
Javier Hernandez burst onto the European football scene in 2010 when he was signed by Fergie and gifted him 20 goals in all competitions.
With this in mind, Hirving Lozano, at the ripe age of 20, is going to be poached by Mourinho and United from his Mexican club Pachuca.
He’s going to be a one for the future with the likes of Martial, Rashford, and Ibrahimovic up top for the Red Devils, but if he’s half as productive as Chicharito was in his maiden voyage in the Premier League the transfer money will be well worth it.
He’s quick and tricky and with Memphis Depay being unpredictably bad, having the young Mexican on the flank could prove very useful coming off the bench.

Despite not making the Champions League, Mourinho is attracting top talent in order to rebuild the great team that was Fergie’s United.
