Following the exit of Mexico from the World Cup in Brazil, it is reported that both Inter and AC Milan are monitoring the ongoing situation of Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
In recent days rumours have circulated that super-sub Hernandez has handed in an official transfer request to United but they are yet to be substantiated.
Despite the link with Spurs, the Italian press are suggesting both Inter and AC Milan are looking at the striker. Corriere della Sera claims both Milan clubs watched Hernandez score on World Cup duty and are monitoring his situation at Old Trafford, even though funds are in short supply.
Signed in 2010 as a complete unknown from Guadalajara, Hernandez made an immediate impact by scoring in the 2010 World Cup and then on his United debut in a Community Shield win against Chelsea.
Having made over 100 appearances and scoring 37 goals for United, Chicharito quickly became a fans’ favourite but due to limited opportunities that look set to continue under Louis van Gaal, a move away is a definite possibility for Hernandez this year.
Although there is not a tangible source backing up the transfer request of Hernandez, bookmakers have slashed their odds over the Mexican making a move to Tottenham, who are in the market for a new striker since Roberto Soldado failed to make a real impact in his first season at White Hart Lane.
Hernandez’ Mexico side were knocked out of the World Cup by a Holland side managed by new United boss Louis van Gaal, so with Hernandez on his way back to Manchester, many would anticipate a conclusion to this story over the next couple of weeks.
