Valencia target deal for Javier Hernandez

Spanish giants Valencia have set their sights on Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez as a replacement for the departing Roberto Soldado on a season long loan.

David Moyes, who is already trying to sort out the future of one striker in Wayne Rooney, will have to deal with another headache as Valencia has up the ante to take the Mexican international striker on loan from the Premier League champions.

The Mexican international was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson from Chivas de Guadalajara in 2010 but he has yet to nail down a first team spot in the team, coming off the bench for much of his time at the club and scoring important goals, an attribute that has drawn comparisons with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And Javier Hernandez, who has grown increasingly frustrated at the lack of first time action for the past three years might also find the proposition too hard to turn down, leaving United with another striker dilemma. United will want to convince the Mexican to stay put at the club but Valencia, fresh off selling Soldado for £ 26 million to Tottenham Hotspur, also have the cash to do a cut price deal for the forward.

Hernandez has previously been linked with moves to Italian giants Juventus and reports emerging from Spain indicate Real Madrid want the striker in part exchange for United to land the dream signing of Cristiano Ronaldo this summer. But David Moyes, who only has Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck as the other striking options in the absence of Rooney and Hernandez will not want to let go of the 24 year old.

However, the agent of Javier Hernandez had insisted the player is not keen on moving a few months back and that is something that gives hope to United.
