Man Utd striker Hernandez wanted by Valencia

Valencia have made Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez their preferred target to replace Tottenham Hotspur target Roberto Soldado, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Hernandez is said to be keen to get more first team football after slipping below Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney in the United pecking order last season – and if Valencia agree to sell Soldado to Spurs, they would be able to make Hernandez their leading attacker.

United do not want to sell Hernandez but Valencia are expected to have £25m to spend from the sale of Soldado, although they would be unwilling to spend all of that at once on the Mexico international. Indeed, the Spanish club would look to do a deal on the cheap for Hernandez, the newspaper claims.

Hernandez has been at Old Trafford since the summer of 2010, moving from Mexican club Chivas, where he began his career. Thus far Hernandez has 50 goals in 117 appearances for United across all competitions, playing 36 times and netting on 18 occasions for his club last season.
