Manchester United once made a habit of signing great players for bargain fees, but those days are long gone.
United have become a seller’s dream, spending huge sums on the likes of Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria and paying over the odds for a string of others.
There is still value in the market. Clubs simply need to take a few risks. And one player United cannot afford to miss out on is tipped to leave his current club for just £25 million.
That is already cheap in the post-Neymar market. But it is comparable to pennies when you consider the man in question.
The Mirror claims Hirving Lozano could leave PSV Eindhoven for £25million in January, and United cannot afford to miss out.
A pacy, goal-scoring right-winger is arguably top of United’s wish list and the Mexican ticks those boxes and then some.
Last season Lozano scored 19 goals and provided 11 assists in 34 matches for PSV. This season he already has nine goals in thirteen games, including seven in eight league outings.
Considering Lozano’s impressive showing at the World Cup, United should not need any more convincing.
He is exactly what Jose Mourinho needs to revamp his floundering attack. Considering the Mexican is only 23, supremely talented and under-priced, a United bid is a no-brainer.
