Manchester United keen to keep star despite La Liga interest

hernandez.jpgThe Football Transfer Tavern is full today as reports emerged that Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez is possible loan target for Valencia but the La Liga club are likely to be left disappointed reports The Daily Mail.

Los Che are already seeking a replacement for Tottenham-bound striker Roberto Soldado and they have lined up an offer for former Spurs man Helder Postiga who plays for Real Zaragoza and they are looking at a possible loan move for Hernandez to bolster their strikeforce.

Valencia’s Spanish international striker is in talks with Spurs and is expected to pen a deal at White Hart Lane by the end of the week. That could leave the La Liga side short of attacking options and they have reportedly sought out a loan move for Hernandez as short term resolution as they look to keep within their limited budget for the summer.

However the new United manager David Moyes is understood to be keen to keep the 25-year-old striker at Old Trafford. With doubts remaining about England international Wayne Rooney’s future at the club, the Mexico forward could yet have a big season with the Premier League champions.

The reports will be another knock to the hopes of  Valencia coach Mirsolav Djukic, who revealed that a deal to take Soldado to Tottenham was all but completed.

He said: “Soldado is a very good professional, and if his exit to Tottenham is confirmed shortly, we will wish him all the luck in the world,

“We are looking at various options for is he leaves, because we would have too few forwards, even if he stayed.”

Should United hang on to their Mexican forward? Let us know your thoughts below.
