Nemanja Vidic would welcome Javier Hernandez at Inter Milan

Former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has admitted he would love to be reunited with former team-mate Javier Hernandez at Inter Milan.

The Mexican has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer with Inter Milan touted as one of a number of possible destinations for the striker.

Vidic left Old Trafford after eight-and-a-half years at the end of last season and joined the Serie A side as a free agent and La Gazzetta dello Sport have run some quotes that he would be delighted to play with his former team-mate again.

“I’ve heard about the rumours linking Hernandez to Inter, but that’s something for the club to deal with,” said Vidic, who is likely to feature when Inter Milan face United on Wednesday.

“Of course, if you ask me whether I’d like him at Inter, I’ll say yes, it’s obvious Chicharito would be an asset for any club, but at the moment we have to concentrate on the current players.”

Hernandez joined the Manchester United squad in the US just before Louis van Gaal‘s first match in charge against LA Galaxy, but doubts persist over whether the Mexican is part of the Dutchman’s long-term plans. The 26-year-old cut an increasingly frustrated figure last season as his opportunities were limited to domestic cups and substitute league appearances.

With Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order, Hernandez might well seek pastures new this summer.
