Italians line up Manchester United ace

hernandez.jpgNews has just arrived in the Football Transfer Tavern this morning that Juventus are planning to move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

The 24-year-old had a mixed last term at Old Trafford, starting just nine Premier League matches but according to Jack Wilson from the Daily Star the hierarchy at the Italian champions have still enquired about his services in a surprise swoop.

Juve have targeted Real Madrid forward Gonazalo Higuain as the perfect man to lead their frontline but with interest from Arsenal, Madrid are reluctant to sell and without an ideal replacement, a summer transfer could be out of the question.

The Serie A side have now lined up the Mexican international, who was signed by the Red Devils in 2009, as an alternative, although United and new manager David Moyes are eager to keep Hernandez at Old Trafford, with the former Everton boss recently stating that he is not for sale at any price.

However he is behind Dutch star Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck at the club while Moyes could bring in another forward this summer and for this reason may fancy a move to Italy to a side where he will be the first choice forward.

Could United now cash in on their Mexican sensation? Rate this rumour below.
