This cut-price deal has been widely speculated for some time, but if Tottenham are to ever secure the services of Pea-headed poacher Javier Hernandez, then it will have to happen in the coming transfer window.
The disillusioned Manchester United striker has been making noises all season about seeking pastures new, in no small part due to the fact David Moyes has issued him just five Premier League starts since the summer, compared to 15 outings from the bench.
Despite the 25 year-old’s eternal super-sub status at Old Trafford, he’s arguably the most natural goal poacher the Premier League has to offer, with a real fox-in-the-box mentality and a return of 59 goals in 146 United appearances, only 82 of which have been starts.
That equates to over ten goals per season from his last three Premier League campaigns. If it wasn’t for the immense quality of Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie, Hernandez would be in the Red Devils starting line-up every week.
Furthermore, the 35-goal-56-cap Mexico international offers Spurs two vital ingredients their forward line currently lacks; firstly, goals, as previously discussed, and secondly but most importantly, explosive pace and natural penetration.
Only becoming further disenchanted with life at Carrington, Chicarito will undoubtedly want to leave his United days behind him this summer. Resultantly, it’s believed he’ll be available for around £8million-£12million, but Atletico Madrid, Arsenal and Inter Milan are all interested in the South American star.
