Jose Mourinho and Manchester United are considering a shock move for Javier Hernandez this summer.
Manchester United are set to be a busy club in the upcoming transfer window, as the Portuguese manager has some huge plans for a squad overhaul at Old Trafford at the end of the season. He is looking at some top-quality stars to add to his attack, and is ready to spend big on his priority transfer targets.
But with the possibility of the club losing more than one attacker in the summer, Mourinho might have to spend big on more than one attacking additions this summer.
Jose has been looking at the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Andrea Belotti, Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku, and is expected to get at least one of them to the club in the transfer window.
And it is now reported that he wants Manchester United’s former employee Javier Hernandez as the second attacker at the club.
The Mexican international is one of the most exciting finishers in Europe at the moment, but he was sold by previous Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal. The 28-year-old spent a year on loan with Real Madrid, before securing a permanent move to Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen in 2015.
Mourinho has previously criticised Van Gaal for letting the player – who has gone on to score 12 goals and pick up 3 assists in all competitions this season – leave United in the first place.
According to the Telegraph, Mourinho is considering making an approach for Hernandez this summer.
He spent four years at Old Trafford as a young striker, and scored 37 goals in 103 league appearances. But if is to come back to the club, Mourinho will have to offer him more game time than the poacher received during his last stint.
