White Hart Lane side keen on Old Trafford ace.
Tottenham are reportedly interested in underused Man United striker Javier Hernandez according to Sports Direct News.
The 25 year old Mexican has struggled to retain a foothold in the Man United first team ever since joining the club three years ago and his chances of making an impact under David Moyes have been even more limited with the Old Trafford boss handing the lethal finisher just one Premier League start thus far this season.
With Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck all ahead of Chicharito it appears that the Guadalajara born forward could well be considering his future and interest from Tottenham may tempt Hernandez to push for a Man United exit.
Hernandez stated about his future at the Premier League title holders;
“I know my performance on the pitch will allow me to achieve that goal [first-team football] some day either here [in Manchester] or elsewhere for any other club. I just need to be given more opportunities to showcase what I can do.”
Under Sir Alex Ferguson the Guadalajara born forward managed 42 Premier League starts in three seasons, still racking up a thoroughly laudable 33 domestic league goals in the process.
Though Hernandez is still tied down to a long term deal Man United may well consider offers for his services, especially if Wayne Rooney is to remain at the club. That said it may prove tough to convince David Moyes to sell the striker to a direct Premier League rival.
Hernandez has made a total of 122 appearances for Man United since joining the club in July 2010, 49 of which came from the bench, scoring 51 goals in the process.
Andre Villas-Boas spent upwards of £50m to bring in Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela from Valencia and AS Roma respectively but it would be fair to say that the North London club are still struggling for goals this term, managing just six goals in seven Premier League fixtures this season.
