Report in Spain claim that Liverpool FC are interested in bringing the Manchester United’s Mexican forward Javier Hernandez to Anfield and have an offer in place for the former Real Madrid man.
Liverpool FC are all set to make a shock bid for Manchester United’s out of favor forward Javier Hernandez, who is also subject of interest from Inter Milan and Juventus according to Spanish newspaper AS.
The reports says:
While names of strikers linked with moves to Real Madrid continue to circulate, former Madrid man Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez is preparing for his participation in the Gold Cup with Mexico without knowing what his future holds. .
The striker has a contract with Manchester United until 2016 but Van Gaal does not want him. The Mexican has three offers on the table. The first is from Premier League club Liverpool , who have already paid a 40 million for Firmino. However, Manchester United may not want to sell him to rival.
The other two clubs interested in ‘Chicharito’ are in Italy. Inter , in the process of rejuvenating their squad with lots of new players, will made a a an effort to sign him if they sell Mauro Icardi . Interestingly, there were reports that Rafa Benitez was interested in Inter’s Argentine striker. The second suitor for the ‘Little Pea’ is Juventus , who have sold Carlos Tevez to Boca Juniors but have Mario Mandzukic from Atletico.
While the Spanish media thinks that Liverpool FC may be interested in the Manchester United man, none of the credible sources from England make any mention of the Real Madrid loanee to be on the Liverpool FC striker shortlist.
Relations between the two clubs in terms of transfer is very frosty. Liverpool had recently rejected a bid from United for Raheem Sterling, citing that they would not sell any of their players to their fierce rivals.
There is little doubt that if Javier Hernandez is to part with Manchester United, he will not be to Liverpool FC. And in their defense, there is a major doubt if Liverpool do need Hernandez, given that the player is most effective for short bursts rather than for full 90 minutes, something which the club is looking for actively in the transfer market.
