Italian club Torino have joined the race to sign United's Mexican forward Javier Hernandez, according to the Mirror.

The Italian club, who sold Matteo Darmian to United for £12 million earlier in the summer, as said to be interested in taking Hernandez on a season-long loan deal with the option to a permanent switch.

West Ham and Tottenham are also reported to be interested in the 27-year-old, who was an unused substitute in United's 1-0 win against Spurs on the opening day.

It was reported that the Red Devils would allow Chicarito to leave once they have sealed a deal for Pedro, so that could give Torino time to fashion a deal for the striker.


Barcelona star Pedro has claimed he does not want to leave the Nou Camp this summer following links of a move to Manchester United. 

However, the Spanish star did go as far as to rule out a move to Manchester, saying 'lets see what happens.'

The 28-year-old scored the winning goal in Barcelona's 5-4 Super Cup win over Sevilla last night having come off the bench.

It was reported that a deal between the two clubs was close, but had been put on hold due to Neymar's bout of mumps, however it remains to be seen whether the winger will link up with Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford.


David de Gea has been included in United's 29-man squad for their Champions League play-off tie with Club Brugge.

The Spanish stopper was left out of the squad to face Tottenham, being replaced by Sergio Romero, but is one of four goalkeepers to be named by Louis van Gaal.

De Gea is still being linked with a move to Real Madrid, with it being reported yesterday that Florentino Perez was prepared to give in to United's demands. 

If the 'keeper was to play in the play-off matches it would not stop him playing for Madrid in the group stage should he make the move.
