Javier Hernandez remains a transfer target for Inter Milan, although Fernando Torres is still the potential acquisition preferred by the club’s owner Erick Thohir. The future of Hernandez as a Manchester United player has been the subject of speculation for a number of months, with previous manager David Moyes regularly overlooking the Mexican striker.
It remains to be seen if Hernandez will be offered greater prospects under the next coach, set to be Louis van Gaal, or if he will be advised to seek a transfer elsewhere. According to La Gazetta Dello Sport, Inter could be an option for Hernandez should Manchester United decide to sell.
Thohir, it is claimed, would not be ‘displeased’ at the prospect of signing Hernandez from Manchester United while, should a deal be completed, the 25-year-old could be the third player to swap Old Trafford for the San Siro this summer.
Nemanja Vidic will complete a free transfer to Inter at the end of his contract, while Patrice Evra could reportedly do the same. A deal for Hernandez would appear less likely, however, given that Inter are still prioritising the recruitment of Torres from Chelsea.
Chelsea are set to complete a marquee striker signing over the coming months, with Diego Costa the most likely to move to Stamford Bridge, and his proposed arrival is likely to spell the end for Torres at the club.
