Manchester United will have to ward off strong interest from both Valencia and Inter Milan if they intend to keep Javier Hernandez past the summer transfer window, as the Spanish and Italian giants look set to go head to head for his signature.
According to reports from TuttoMercato in Italy, Valencia are preparing a £9million offer for Hernandez, as they see him as an ideal addition to their frontline. This has prompted talk that Inter are now fearing that they may lose out if they do not approach United themselves, thus potentially sparking a bidding war between the two clubs.
Hernandez has struggled to make an impact under David Moyes this year and, despite the fact he has scored seven goals in all competitions, has largely been used as a substitute in the dying moments of games. As such it has been speculated that the Mexico international will look to move elsewhere if it means he will be guaranteed regular game-time.
As of yet it remains unclear as to what Moyes’ intentions are concerning the 25-year-old, but with Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbecks on the books - as well as being credited with an interest in a number of foreign strikers - the United boss may let Hernandez leave if it means he frees up space in the squad for another summer addition.
