Serie A Duo Ready To Pounce As Man United Striker Admits He Wants Games

Juventus and Fiorentina are interested in Manchester United Javier Hernandez, who is frustrated at a lack of playing time.Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez could be set for a summer move to Serie A, with the Daily Mirror reporting that Italian duo Juventus and Fiorentina are interested in signing the striker.

Hernandez has not managed to nail down a starting place in Sir Alex Ferguson’s team this season, with the Scottish manager preferring the work rate of Danny Welbeck upfront over the impressive goals-to-games ratio of the Mexican.

The 25-year-old proved an instant hit at Old Trafford when he joined from Guadalajara in 2010, finishing with 20 goals as they claimed the Premier League title. However, he has found first-team opportunities harder to come by since then.

His quest was made even tougher with the big-money signing of Robin van Persie from Arsenal last summer, though he has still shown a knack for getting on the score sheet despite limited appearances.

“It is frustrating,” he admitted.

“All the players in the world want to start every single game, every week. Of course any player wants that.

“I’m happy to be at this club but I’d love more games.”

Juventus are likely to win Serie A again this season and will look to spend money strengthening their squad for an improved Champions League run next year. They have also got their eyes on another United misfit, Nani.

Hernandez had also been mentioned in a rumour involving a possible deal with Atletico Madrid for Radamel Falcao, though the Colombian striker now looks likely to stay in Spain.

Ferguson will have to look somewhere for new strikers though, with Wayne Rooney also being linked to a summer exit from the club.
