Torino are interested in signing Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez on loan with a view to buy, according to the Mirror.
Hernandez was deemed surplus to requirements at Man United last summer and was shipped out to Real Madrid on loan by Louis van Gaal.
After struggling at the Bernabeu, the Mexican’s future at Old Trafford is precarious. With the likes of Sevilla and West Ham United already registering their interest in the striker, a move away is likely.
Now Torino, who have already done business with United this summer with the transfer of Matteo Darmian, are keen on bringing Hernandez to Italy. The Mirror add that Torino would sign the player permanently if he features in a certain number of fixtures during the 2015/16 season.
Hernandez is a proven goalscoring talent at United. His effortless poaching ability has been a feature of his game since joining in 2010, which has subsequently ensured his status as a favourite amongst supporters.
At this present moment Hernandez is one of the two senior strikers at Old Trafford alongside Wayne Rooney. His departure would most likely signify the arrival of a new frontman at United.
Hernandez was unfairly ostracised by van Gaal last season amidst the chaos of last year’s transfer window. Perhaps he should be given another chance, but if van Gaal does sell him he shouldn’t let the Mexican go cheaply.
