Ever since the arrival of Robin van Persie at Manchester United, Javier Hernandez has fallen down the first-team pecking order at Old Trafford, and now the striker feels it's time to move on.
Originally this deal with Juventus was set to be worth £14 million, however Louis van Gaal has seen this as an opportunity to sign his top target, Arturo Vidal.
Until now, Van Gaal has been frustrated with Juventus in his attempts to land Vidal, and at one point it seemed the deal was off, however now that Juventus have inquired about a deal for Hernandez, Manchester United are set to offer the Italian side a part exchange.
In this part exchange we would see Vidal join and Hernandez plus £20m go the other way, this would see United meet the asking price for the Chilean, as it would raise the total value of the deal to £34m.
Van Gaal would now prefer to offer the £20m plus Hernandez instead, as the deal would free up space in the United squad, and in addition there would be less money on the line, in case Vidal never reaches the same heights as previous seasons due to his recent knee surgery.
With extra space in the squad, Van Gaal could be tempted to add to his attacking options, by bidding for the Dutch attacker, Memphis Depay, who impressed at the World Cup under Van Gaal.
However the bidding for Depay relies upon this Hernandez deal, and United would have to act quickly, with the transfer window shutting on Monday night.
