Inter Milan are close to securing a deal for Manchester United's out-of-favour striker Javier Hernandez, according to Sport Mediaset.

The Serie A giants, who confirmed the signing of United captain Nemanja Vidic earlier this week, are keen to add Hernandez to their ranks this summer - and are believed to be close to wrapping up negotiations.

Hernandez has grown increasingly frustrated with life at Old Trafford since David Moyes succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager.

The 25-year-old had hoped to cement a first-team place under his new boss, but has made just four Premier League starts this season, scoring seven goals in a total of 24 appearances.

The Mexico international was quoted earlier this week as saying "my club don't take me much into account", while there have been several other instances of Hernandez expressing his frustration over recent months.

He may be prepared to leave the Red Devils in order to join Vidic at the San Siro, while Inter have also been linked with moves for two other members of Manchester United's first-team: left-back Patrice Evra, whose contract expires this summer, and Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa, who has also played a peripheral role at Old Trafford this season.
