Valencia want prolific Manchester United front man Javier Hernandez to replace Tottenham Hotspur-bound striker Roberto Soldado at the Mestalla next season, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.

The Liga giants are still in discussions with their Premier League counterparts over the sale of their captain, with a deal expected to be concluded shortly.

And that means that Valencia will be needing a replacement for Soldado, with sporting director Braulio Ortiz having earmarked the Mexico international as the man for the job.

Hernandez, aka ‘Chicharito, has been at Old Trafford for the past three seasons now, having originally arrived in the north west from Mexican outfit C.D. Guadalajara in July 2010.

And in the intervening three-year period, the 25-year-old has gone on to establish himself as being one of the most lethal penalty-box strikers currently operating in the Premier League, finding the back of the net on 50 occasions in his 117 matches in all competitions for the Red Devils, including 33 goals in just 77 top-flight outings.

However, many of those appearances have come from the substitutes’ bench, with Hernandez  said to have grown frustrated of late at his lack or regular game time under previous United head coach Sir Alex Ferguson.

And the ‘Little Pea’ is understood to be weighing up a move to Spain, although his final decision may now rest on the outcome of the future of fellow United forward Wayne Rooney, who is wanted by Chelsea.
