Javier Hernandez linked with Inter Milan move

Published Add your comment

Javier Hernandez could join Inter Milan this summer, with speculation suggesting that the Manchester United striker is wanted in Serie A for an initial loan move.

According to reports from Italian publication Tuttosport cited by talkSPORT, the Italian giants are apparently willing to pay a fee of £1.5 million to take the affable Mexican striker to the San Siro on a temporary basis next season with view to an eventual permanent transfer worth £9.5 million.

Surplus to requirements?

Hernandez's future at Manchester United has been subject to intense scrutiny and speculation for some time now, with the former Guadalajara favourite - who moved to Old Trafford from the Primera Division back in 2010 - having struggled to convince that he is worthy of a regular starting berth.

While the 26-year-old is certainly popular with supporters and has scored a number of important goals from the substitutes bench, Hernandez failed to register any sort of real impact during the failed reign of David Moyes and has never looked close to edging himself ahead of Robin van Persie in the established pecking order.

Indeed, the arrival of Louis van Gaal - who was officially unveiled as Manchester United's new manager on Thursday afternoon - is likely to further damage Hernandez's chances of doing just that, with the experienced Dutchman known to be a big fan of Van Persie, a fact clearly proven by his decision to hand him the honour of becoming Netherlands captain.

Inter competition?

This certainly isn't the first occasion Inter have been linked with Hernandez either, as the Nerazzurri seek to make a real splash in the transfer market in the coming months during the first summer window under wealthy Indonesian president Erick Thohir.

The likes of Edin Dzeko, Roberto Soldado and Chelsea's Fernando Torres have all been mentioned with regards to potential moves to the San Siro, yet it would appear that Hernandez is back to being Inter's Premier League striker target of choice.

Just what competition they may face for his signature is not immediately clear. Tottenham and North London rivals Arsenal have also been credited with a interest in Hernandez in the past, with both clubs seeking to radically boost their options in the final third.
