Hernandez crops up on the Spanish side’s radar.
Valencia seemed resigned to the fact that star striker Roberto Soldado will be joining either Tottenham or Liverpool this summer and have lined up Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez as a replacement for the Spaniard, according to the Mirror.
The future of Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford could determine if the Mexican stays or goes however, with the Englishman keeping Hernandez out of the team if the forward stays.
However, with Los Che the 25-year-old would be offered a more prominent role in the side, coming in for Soldado as a like-for-like swap.
Hernandez would lead the line at the Mestalla Stadium, something that the Mexico international hasn’t achieved at United – despite being highly regarded at the club as a talented forward.
Yet with both Rooney and Robin Van Persie with the Red Devils, the attacker is third in the pecking order and often has to make do with a place on the bench.
The striker makes the most of the opportunities given to him though, with the man known as Chicharito scoring 50 goals in 117 matches for United since joining the Premier League champions for £6.6m in 2010.
A deal is likely as Spurs appear to be leading the race for Soldado, with the 28-year-old’s impressive form in La Liga making the Spain international an attractive target.
The former Real Madrid youth player netted 24 league goals in 2012/13 and Tottenham view the forward as the perfect player to star up-front at White Hart Lane.
