Tottenham trying to sign Javier Hernandez from Man Utd

Published 4 Comments

Tottenham are one of three clubs locked in a battle for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican will feature for his country at the World Cup this summer, but had a season to forget at Old Trafford.

He made just six league starts for Manchester United but still managed 10 goals having been used as a sub on 18 different occasions.

According to the Daily Express, his lack of game time has alerted Tottenham, who currently look short in the striker department and were linked with a swoop during the January transfer window. The paper reports that Inter Milan and Aston Villa are also monitoring his situation at Old Trafford.

The likelihood of the 25-year-old leaving Manchester United increased when his national team manager Miguel Herrera suggested he should look for a new club after the World Cup.

"In the case of 'Chicharito'," he said earlier today. "I believe it'd be in his interest to leave so he is taken into consideration to play."

The Manchester United striker himself admitted that there is uncertainty surrounding his future, although insisted that any decision over whether to join Tottenham or any other club can wait.

"There is obviously uncertainty [regarding my future], but right now I am fully focused on the national team," he said.

"My agent and my staff help me work it all out. My future could be decided tomorrow, a little after or within three months. (I could) stay there (in Manchester), I really don't know."

Tottenham struggled for goals this season - a problem which played it's part in their 6th place finish in the Premier League.
