Blues launch surprise bid for Man Utd striker
Chelsea look set to make a surprise move to sign Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez as cover for the injured Diego Costa, according to CaughtOffside.
The Blues could be without Costa for up to six weeks after the in-form Spaniard picked up a hamstring injury, while Fernando Torres also looks to be closing in on an exit from the club.
Hernandez may be available for around £16m, with United keen to offload either him or Danny Welbeck, who has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
