Tuttosport: Manchester United want Chicharito sale, Inter loan on

Italian newspaper Tuttosport claims that Manchester United are keen to sell Javier Hernandez and Inter may be ready to pounce.

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez isn't Inter boss Walter Mazzarri's first choice, but the Italian side may make a move for the Mexican.

Inter have struggled with their main transfer objective of the summer - to sign a proven world-class goal getter.

The Nerazzurri have had to admit defeat in their attempts to sign Manchester City men Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic and couldn't find a way to bring Chelsea's Fernando Torres to San Siro.

According to Tuttosport, Inter boss Mazzarri would love to sign Jovetic, Erik Lamela of Tottenham or Torino star Alessio Cerci, but may have to settle for Hernandez.

The paper states that Manchester United want to move Chicharito on and Inter can't let the opportunity to sign him slip away.

The most likely scenario is a paid loan with Inter giving United just under £1.2 million to have Hernandez for the coming season.

There would be the option to make the deal permanent in the summer of 2015 for a fee set at around £9.5 million should the Mexican international impress.

It has been suggested that Inter owner Erik Thohir may be partly motivated by the marketing potential of Hernandez having already pulled off a coup in signing Nemanja Vidic on a free transfer when his contract with the Old Trafford giants expired.
