Valencia are plotting a January raid on Manchester United as they look to take Javier Hernandez away from Old Trafford.

The Mexican striker finds himself down the pecking order, as Moyes puts his trust in experienced pairing Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

Englishman Danny Welbeck appears to be third choice up top, leaving Chicharito with limited game time.

He started United's midweek victory over Real Sociedad, but has appeared just three times in the Premier League this season, failing to hit the net.

The pacey forward is keen to get plenty of playing time ahead of this summer's World Cup, with competition stiff for a place in the Mexico line-up.

According to, Valencia are keen to add the striker to their squad in January.

With the impeding loss of centre-back Adil Rami to AC Milan, Valencia manager Miroslav Djukic is also in the market for a defender, but is keen to secure the services of proven goalscorer Hernandez.

Despite insisting that he is happy at Old Trafford, fan-favourite Hernandez has failed to nail a starting berth at the club since his 2010 move. 

Cash-strapped Valencia are concerned, however, with the likely fee required to take the Mexican to Spain, and the striker may have to take a pay-cut.

Hernandez will be hoping to get some minutes on the pitch when United host stoke at Old Trafford this weekend.
