According to Javier Hernandez’s agent, Internazionale have not been in touch with Manchester United about signing the striker.
The Mexican international has been at Old Trafford since the summer of 2010, and has established himself as a firm crowd favourite. However, he has been unable to cement a regular place in the starting line-up for the Reds, and his situation has worsened this season since David Moyes succeeded the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.
In his first three seasons in Manchester, Hernandez appeared 27, 28 and 22 times in the Premier League respectively, but this time he has played just 16 times of which only four have been starts – the last of which came in December. This has led to speculation over his future, as he enters the final two years of his current contract.
Whilst a host of rival teams in England would love to take the 25-year-old, it is likely that if he leaves, United would prefer to offload him abroad where he would also receive offers. Inter have been heavily linked with a move for the striker in recent months, but his agent insists there has been no approach from the Italian giants.
“I think these are just rumours. I have no news of Internazionale and United have not let me know anything about a possible offer,” Eduardo Hernandez told calciomercato.it. “The same goes for the other teams that have been linked to my client, to date there is nothing concrete. At the moment we have not planned any meetings with the Red Devils.”
Should Inter make a move for Hernandez, he could end up in the same side as United captain Nemanja Vidic next season. The Serbian international is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the current campaign, and has already agreed and signed a reported three-year deal with the Nerazzurri which will run from this summer.
In fact, a third United player be in Inter’s sights. According to The Sun, the Serie A side have also set their sights on luring Patrice Evra at the end of the season. The France international is set to become a free agent in the summer, and the former Monaco ace may look to explore a fresh challenge just as his captain has decided to.
