Man United receive two bids for wanted hit man

Javier Hernandez could be about to leave Manchester United after the club have received two offers for the Mexican international, reports the Guardian. Juventus and Valencia have each issued a bid for the striker, who is rumoured to be leaving Old Trafford this summer amid fears that he will not feature in Louis Van Gaal’s plans for the senior squad.

Both offers are thought to be within the region of £12 million and £15 million. On the one hand Hernandez has the Italian Serie A champions lined up as a potential destination, on the other he has an ambitious La Liga outfit. It is not clear at present whether either club holds an advantage in negotiations to sign the forward.

Hernandez could become one part of a massive squad clearout by Van Gaal and United over the weekend. After suffering a humiliating four-nil loss to MK Dons in the League Cup on Tuesday night, Van Gaal is expected to chop and change significantly over the remaining few days of the transfer window, with Hernandez being tipped as one of those to leave.

The player was very ineffective against the League One opposition midweek, and is tipped to leave the club ahead of Danny Welbeck. Both strikers face an immediate future on the substitute’s bench at United, seeing as the side have significantly fewer matches to compete in this season. At Juve or Valencia, however, it is expected that Hernandez will receive billing as either club’s top striker. The promise of an increased profile could be enough to persuade the attacker to leave the Red Devils.
