Manchester United's £15m star interesting Borussia Dortmund

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, according to The Daily Mail.

The British publication suggests that the Red Devils will consider offers for the Mexican international during the summer, with Jurgen Klopp's Bundesliga outfit reportedly among those interested in the player.

25-year-old Hernandez - better known as 'Chicarito' - joined Manchester United from Guadalajara in 2010 and went on to establish himself as a firm favourite at Old Trafford with a plethora of impressive and rewarding substitute cameos during Sir Alex Ferguson's reign.

Despite his reputation as an excellent option from the bench, however, Hernandez has never quite been given an extended run of starts to prove his worth and indeed even his impact from the bench appears to have waned during a difficult season for Manchester United under David Moyes.

Subsequently, Hernandez was linked with a move away from the club during the recent January window, with La Liga outfit Valencia - who were also supposedly happy to pay £15 million to sign him permanently in the summer - reported to have made a late loan bid for his services.

Borussia Dortmund, who have had somewhat of a disappointing time in the Bundesliga recently and currently sit 17 points adrift of leaders Bayern Munich in third ahead of this weekend's trip to Werder Bremen, will surely be in the market for attacking reinforcements this summer with top striker Robert Lewandowski set to join Pep Guardiola's side at the end of the season.

Whether it would indeed be sensible for Moyes and co. to sell Hernandez, however, remains to be seen.

While he is never likely to oust either Robin van Persie or Wayne Rooney from the starting XI at Manchester United, Moyes' relationship with the club's supporters is fractious and would presumably not be helped by letting go of such a popular player.
