Pachuca forward Hirving Lozano has told Mexican news outlet record.com.mx that he does not know anything about an alleged move to Premier League giants Manchester United.

According to Sky Sports, Pachuca vice president Andres Fassi had previously claimed that negotiations with United were ongoing.

The 20-year-old, who has scored 33 goals in 122 appearances for the Liga MX side, is a highly-rated prospect in his home country and is set to play a part for Mexico at this summer's Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.

Lozano already has seven international caps to his name and came off the bench in the first two games of his team's Copa America campaign, before starting in the final group game with Venezuela and the humiliating 7-0 defeat to eventual winners Chile.

But while he admits he is flattered to see that his growing reputation has linked him with a move to the Premier League, he insists that reports claiming that a move is close are wide of the mark.

"It's nice to hear people talk about a potential move to Manchester United, but it would have been better if it was actually a fact," he told record.com.mx.

"I don't know anything about United's interest. If the club tell me anything, then we will see, but I don't know anything about it at this stage. I am at Pachuca now and we will see what happens in the future."
