Juventus are in the market for a new striker and they have earmarked Manchester United's Javier Hernandez as a possible addition to their new-look strike-force, according to the Daily Star.
They have agreed terms with Athletic Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente - and it seems that they are not done yet, as they have made approaches for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain and Hernandez.
The 24-year-old Mexico international has had a mixed season at Manchester United, starting only eight Premier League matches for the Old Trafford outfit.
However, the striker still scored 10 goals in the league and 18 in all competition primarily while coming of the bench. The player would not be satisfied with the lack of starts at United and he is effectively fourth-choice with Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck all ahead of him in the pecking order.
United, for their part, would hate to lose Hernandez, who has become a real fan favorite since joining Old Trafford from Mexican club Chivas Guadalajara in 2010 - and during his time he has scored 50 goals in 117 appearance for the club.
The lack of playing time for Chicharito could be an important factor for the player and he would want to have some assurances about playing time from new manager David Moyes.
Moyes has rebuffed the chances of Hernandez joining Juventus by saying that the player was part of his plans at the club. The recent events at Juventus suggest that the club are looking to make a statement by strengthening their strike-force.
Should United sell Javier Hernandez to Juventus? What do you think?
