Juventus are looking to bolster their attack for next season by signing Javier Hernandez from Manchester United.
reports have emerged over the last few days in Mexico, Italy and Portugal that Juve are ready to make an offerAlthough still speculation, , meaning there could be substantial truth towards the rumour.
Having already signed Fernando Llorente on a pre-contract agreement in July, it’s claimed that the Serie A club are considering tabling an offer for the Mexican international in hope of the little and large act forming a devastating partnership.
With United already having Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck as firepower, they may look to use some of the cash gained from Hernandez’s departure towards tempting Real Madrid to sell Cristiano Ronaldo back to his former club.
Hernandez has become increasingly frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities – especially in big games, and last month’s decision to play Welbeck ahead of Rooney against Real Madrid at Old Trafford may have made him realise he could be surplus to requirements and will feel he needs to find first team football.
Atletico Madrid are looking to fight Juve for his signature However, it’s been reported that as they prepare themselves to be without Radelmao Falcao next season.
After being priced out of a move for Porto’s Jackson Martinez, they have turned their attention to the 24 year-old.
With 16 goals in 28 appearances for United this season, Atletico consider the £16 million good value for money.
It’s unclear which club Hernandez would prefer if he was to leave United, as Juventus’ rich tradition and fantastic season in the Champions League could help sway his decision. While on the other hand playing in a league considered superior by Uefa and in a country that speaks his native language could also prove tempting.
