The news will come as a blow to United boss David Moyes, who is already desperately trying to hold onto one striker, with Chelsea still confident of landing Wayne Rooney.
While United are adamant the England striker is going nowhere, Chelsea are sure once they make a big name signing of their own – the deal will go through.
Valencia are meanwhile looking at replacements for Roberto Soldado, and have identified Mexico striker Hernandez, who is looking for more first team opportunities.
Should the Rooney deal go through, he may well find them at Old Trafford, but is aware that if United’s stance does not change he will once again find himself on the bench for the start of the season.
United will look to convince Hernandez that his future lies at Old Trafford, but a regular starting berth at the La Liga side may appeal to the Mexican, who has 33 Premier League goals in 77 appearances for the club – many of them coming as a substitute.
Valencia will look to make an offer for the player once the £25million they receive from Tottenham for Soldado clears.
United are set to lose another striker, although this time on their own terms. Espanyol are looking to take Chilean prospect Angelo Henriquez on a season long loan. The 19-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Wigan, and United are looking to give him more first team experience.
