Man United to use unwanted ace to land promising starlet

Manchester United are planning to use Javier Hernandez to win the race for highly-rated Russia international Roman Zobnin, according to reports from Metro.

The 21-year-old midfielder currently plies his trade in his homeland with Dinamo Moscow and is considered to be one of his nation’s finest emerging talents, even though he’s yet to net a league goal this season.

Zobnin, who has one full international cap to his name, is believed to have made his way into United’s transfer crosshairs, with a summer raid a possibility.

And with Dinamo reluctant to lose the youngster, the Red Devils are ready to send Hernandez in the opposite direct, as well as £5.7m, to make a deal happen.

The Mexican is currently on loan at Real Madrid, but after featuring infrequently this term he’s set to return to Manchester in a few months’ time.

The lure of landing a well-known international forward may appeal to Dinamo.
