Manchester United forward being lined up by Italian champions in £17m deal

Manchester United have already lost Sir Alex Ferguson and Paul Scholes and are apparently close to seeing chubby striker Wayne Rooney walking out of the Old Trafford exit, but the Mirror are reporting that Javier Hernandez could also be leaving.

The paper claim that if Juventus cannot complete a deal for Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain then the little pea is the man they want to see in Turin – A city notorious for sublime food.

Italy’s Old Lady have already snapped up Fernando Llorente to bolster their frontline but Antonio Conte is keen to secure one more attacking outlet before the new Serie A season rolls around. The Mexican will surely welcome the chance to leave Manchester after becoming a bit part player after Robin van Persie started snatching the headlines, but whether or not new gaffer David Moyes will allow the switch is something we will find out in the next few months.

Maybe they can throw in the likes of Chris Smalling and Danny Welbeck as well…

The Red Devils have it all to do next year as they start their new era under the former Everton manager, but if he is to retain the Premier League trophy then players like Javier Hernandez will either have to stay at the club or be replaced by big money players.

Mushy peas, anyone?
