Javier Hernandez left waiting on move to Inter Milan

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan are in pole position to sign Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez this summer, but believe that the only thing that could scupper their chances of landing the Mexican marksman is a change in stance from new Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal.

Hernandez was largely reduced to the role of impact substitute at Old Trafford last season despite Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney both spending significant spells on the sidelines through injury, scoring just four goals across 24 Premier League appearances.

Inter are prepared to offer the 25-year-old a fresh start in Serie A and there is only one major reservation holding up a formal transfer offer, with Gazzetta dello Sport reporting that the Nerrazzurri are waiting for Van Gaal to decide whether the clinical poacher features in his plans for next season.

Gazzetta believe Inter's new president Erick Thohir is a big fan of the forward and will make a move if Van Gaal puts the player up for sale, although a decision is not due until both the United star and his new boss have finished their obligations at the World Cup.

The San Siro could well prove to be a haven for Premier League players looking for a change of scenery this summer, with Inter agreeing a deal to sign Vidic and also linked with Hernandez, Patrice Evra, Fernando Torres and Alvaro Negredo.

Thohir has grand plans for Inter and they include Hernandez, but it remains to be seen whether United are prepared to part with a striker who has rather unfairly gained a reputation as a saviour from the bench rather than trusted starter.

Hernandez hit double figures in each of his first three seasons with the Red Devils, but after falling down the pecking order for both club and country over the last 12 months it could be time to look for pastures new.
