Manchester United’s off-pitch shake-up shows no sign of slowing down as we enter the final days of the summer transfer window, with Javier Hernandez the latest name to find himself virtually guaranteed an exit.

Louis van Gaal has had plenty of time to assess the squad he inherited from David Moyes and, as expected, has determined that large-scale changes need to be made. With Wilfried Zaha having joined Crystal Palace on loan for the remainder of this campaign the attention has now turned to Hernandez, whose future is likely to be resolved in a more permanent manner.

Hernandez exit

Reports in Italy now claim that the Mexican forward has agreed terms with Italian champions Juventus, and that his would-be new club are merely waiting for the green light from United in order to complete a transfer.

It’s believed the player himself is putting pressure on Van Gaal to sell, as he wants to ensure he’s playing first-team football this term, and the Dutchman is inclined to give him what he wants, particularly if it boosts his chances of landing Juventus’ Arturo Vidal.

The Chilean international has made it clear that he won’t force a departure from Turin, and his club don’t want to let him go, but United are now reaching the borders of desperation and, following their capture of Angel di Maria, have proven they’re willing to spend big to improve.

For Hernandez it would appear that his Old Trafford career has all but reached its climax, and it looks an increasing certainty that he will be transferred to Turin on a loan deal, with Juve given the option to buy at the end. This follows numerous rumours of discontent from the player himself, with Hernandez having made it clear in the past that he has no intentions of being used as a 'super sub' this season. 

Kagawa sale

Meanwhile Shinji Kagawa also finds himself on the last train out of Manchester, with sources this morning running the story that he has agreed a deal to make a return to Borussia Dortmund.

Jurgen Klopp has long regretted the sale of the Japanese playmaker and openly voiced his concerns over the lack of opportunities he’s been getting in the Premier League. The player himself meanwhile has continually struggled to make an impact with United, and even under Van Gaal he's been given little chance to realise the potential Sir Alex Ferguson saw in him.
