Man United striker Javier Hernandez is reportedly a target of Bayer Leverkusen, and the German outfit are close to securing a deal.
According to the Mail on Sunday, the deal is close to being agree while the Daily Star suggests that United have rejected Tottenham’s approach for the Mexican international.
That comes as no surprise from Louis Van Gaal, as he would undoubtedly want to avoid selling to another Premier League club which could come back to haunt the Red Devils.
Nevertheless, it is still a surprise move given that United are already short of options in attack ahead of a pivotal season for the club.
Wayne Rooney would be the only experienced and recognised main striker at the club, and the England international has only just overcome his goal-drought.
While his hat-trick in Europe in mid-week would have done his confidence the world of good, he still needs to produce in the league.
As a result, selling Hernandez seems to be a very risky move from Van Gaal, unless he has a replacement lined up ahead of the transfer deadline.
