Hernandez a target for Simeone

Wednesday 30 July 2014

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has admitted that he is considering making a move for Manchester United star Javier Hernandez this summer, ESPN is reporting.


Javier Hernandez


The Mexican has found opportunities hard to come by since his glowing debut season – when he picked up the Sir Matt Busby award for United’s player of the year, and under David Moyes started just six games last term.


While new boss Louis van Gaal has spoken highly of the 26-year-old he is likely to find himself behind Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck in the pecking order once again.


His United career has seen him score 59 goals in 152 appearances since moving to Old Trafford in 2010, albeit most of these coming off of the bench.


And Simeone refused to rule out making a move for the Mexican hit man after losing his two first choice strikers this summer – Diego Costa has left for Chelsea while David Villa joined New York City.


Atletico Madrid have already bagged Croatian Mario Mandzukic but Simeone is said to be an admirer of Hernandez’s style of play.


Speaking about transfers he said: “With Javier Hernandez and plenty of other great players, anything is possible. We can't close the door to anyone until the transfer window closes.


“He is a vertical player, great in one on one situations, he's a great option for any team.”
