Ya hay acuerdo entre Pachuca y Celta de Vigo por Hirving Lozano

Following months of interest and sending scouts to analyse the player, Celta Vigo have signed Mexican winger, Hirving Lozano. The 21-year-old will arrive in Vigo after the Confederations Cup.

According to AS Mexico, Celta's directors purchased 80% of the player for €14 million with Pachuca keeping the other 20% in the hopes of making some profit on a possible future sale.

Communication breakdown

This 20% was a sticking point during the negotiations and it forced Celta president Jose Mouriño to travel to Mexico himself to meet with his good friend Jesus Martinez. The Mexican relented and the 20% was the figure that Pachuca would keep in the end as the talented youngster makes his way to Mexico.

Lozano has played in 149 games for Pachuca and he has scored 43 times despite the fact that he is a winger. In addition, he has played 13 times for Mexico. In underage competition, "Chucky" has played 16 times and scored seven times.
