Hernandez wants to leave United in order to guarantee World Cup place.
Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez wants to leave the club so that the 25-year-old is guaranteed a place in Mexico’s World Cup squad, according to the Sun.
The man known as ‘Chicharito’ has endured limited playing opportunities at Old Trafford this season, with Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck all ahead of the forward for a starting place.
Hernandez hopes that the imminent arrival of Juan Mata from Chelsea for £37m will convince manager David Moyes to allow the Mexico international to leave.
With the 2014 World Cup approaching quickly the attacker is keen to be playing regularly in order to ensure he gets a place in the starting XI.
Hernadez joined the English side in 2010 for a fee of around £6m and has since scored 57 goals in 140 games in all competitions.
Inter Milan are thought to be interested in the striker – who United value at around £15m – and Moyes could be open to a swap deal with one of the Italians’ stars.
The Red Devils boss is keen to strengthen the Premier League champions’ midfield and has identified Inter’s Fredy Guarin as a possible target.
Moyes already knows the Serie A club are open to selling Guarin as the Colombia international nearly completed a move to Juventus earlier this month.
In the end that deal fell through and now United are keeping close tabs on the future of the 27-year-old and have asked to be informed about any developments.
