Juventus have reportedly expressed their interest in Man United striker Javier Hernandez according to the Daily Express.

The Mexican international is seen by the Turin side as a player who can offer the Serie A side a prolific striking edge that they perhaps currently lack.

Antonio Conte has already secured a deal to bring in Spanish forward Fernando Llorente in the summer and could wish to use the speedy Man United man as a potential strike-partner for the big Athletic Bilbao man.

Luca Luca Vargiu, a FIFA agent, has declared Juve are interested in his client Chicharito, stating;

“It would be around 20 million euros (transfer), and is a big expense for a purchase, and that Juventus have to make several.”

Hernandez may well feel it’s time to consider a move away from the Old Trafford club with his first team chances growing more and more limited regardless of the impact he does make when he is selected.

He is behind Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck in Sir Alex Ferguson’s pecking order despite scoring 16 goals from just 18 starts in all competitions thus far this season.

Having been handed just six Premier League starts this season, compared to a total of 18 and 15 in his previous two campaigns, the 24 year old may well surmise that he is only going to stagnate at the Premier League table toppers and a move to join the Italian giants could well help re-ignite his career.
