Javier Hernández has emerged as a summer target for Serie A Champions, Juventus as they look to bolster their squad and make an improved run in the Champions League. The Mexican international looks set to end his spell in Manchester and with a number of clubs eyeing the out-of-form poacher, Juventus have identified him as a backup option to first choice, Alvaro Morata.
Italian newspaper, Tutto Sport revealed the story on their front page earlier as Juve are making contingency plans given the difficulties with negotiating with Real Madrid over the sale of Morata.
It looks certain that Manchester United would be willing to sell at the right price as a striker will be near the top of Louis van Gaal’s priorities in the transfer window and this will push Chicharito further down the pecking order.
Chelsea and Atlético Madrid have previously been registered with an interest and Hernández will need to choose carefully when selecting his next career move. With Chelsea finalising a deal for Diego Costa, the 26-year-old striker will not want to move clubs and find himself once more in the role of impact substitute.
A transfer in the coming months appears almost certain and an impressive performance with México in the World Cup may increase the number of potential suitors and the transfer fee.
