Javier Hernandez' is likely to leave Manchester United in the summer after failing to cement his place in the champion's starting line up. A move to the Midlands has now been mooted for the out of favour striker, according to the Daily Star.

The Mexican international is listed highly on Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert's wish list along with Manchester City's Joleon Lescott and Tottenham's Lewis Holtby. Villa Owner Randy Lerner is ready to spend in the summer after two years of belt-tightening and Chicharito is a favourite to lead a Villa Park revolution.

Lambert is setting his sights high as he's hoping to convince Lerner that they now have to be in the market for a better class of player. Hernandez has fallen down the picking order at Old Trafford behind the likes of Van Persie and Welbeck but there is rumoured to be a lot of interest in the 25-year-old.

With the likes of this year's Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and Tottenham are also said to be monitoring the £12m-rated striker.

Although he scored 20 goals in his debut season four years ago, he has become a bench warmer this season, he's said to be desperate for regular football to seal his first-team place for Mexico. Hernandez indicated that he may be unhappy with the lack of playing time earlier in the year, after cryptic posts on social network sites.
