Javier Hernandez is high on a shortlist of forwards at Valencia, who want to take him on loan for the season, according to the MailOnline.
A list has been prepared in order to find a replacement for Roberto Soldado, who looks as though he will join Tottenham, despite interest from Liverpool.
Also said to be on Valencia’s shortlist is young Manchester City striker John Guidetti.
Hernandez has been targeted though, in the hope that he will be taken by the idea of more regular game time.
The Mexican, 23, has spent the last 18 months moving in and out of Manchester United‘s side, with a head injury and Robin Van Persie’s arrival of no great help.
He has been linked with Atletico Madrid and Juventus in recent months, but insists he wants to remain at Old Trafford.
Valencia’s hopes would therefore appear faint, particularly as new United manager David Moyes is an admirer of Hernandez’s talent.
Any move would also be dependent on the outcome of the Wayne Rooney saga.
The disgruntled forward has been recovering from a hamstring injury and is expected to join up with his teammates for a friendly in Sweden at the start of next month.
Arsenal and Chelsea are still hot on his heels though.
With Rooney’s future still unclear then, Valencia may have to wait if they want to make a move for Hernandez.
The player also known as Chicharito has scored ten goals in each of United’s last two campaigns.
