Manchester United could face stern competition in signing PSV Eindhoven striker Hirving Lozano as Real Madrid are reportedly plotting a deal to sign him up in January.

The Mexican is currently valued at €40m (£36m, $45m) and is also being closely monitored by Inter Milan, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is a keen admirer of Lozano and may also consider a loan deal for the forward in January – as per Don Balon.

Lozano scored 19 times and provided eight assists from a wide position as PSV won the Dutch title last season.

United are behind the Catalan club – who have just splashed out on new players including the likes of Arturo Vidal, Malcom and Clement Lenglet.

A number of Premier League clubs were monitoring the attacker, who is nicknamed “Chucky”.

Chelsea, Everton and Arsenal had all scouted him out but a transfer did not materialise.

Jose Mourinho was reported to be unhappy with the wide options at his disposal at Old Trafford in the summer and was thought to be eager to sell Anthony Martial.

The Frenchman, 22, stayed at United, though, and was reported last month to be on the verge of receiving an offer of a new contract.
