Mestalla side want to bring in Old Trafford forward on temporary deal.
Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez is possible loan target for Valencia as they seek a replacement for Spurs-bound striker Roberto Soldado but any approach is expected to be knocked back by new United boss David Moyes according to The Daily Mail.
With the 28-year-old Spanish international expected to sign for the White Hart Lane outfit in the coming days, the Mestalla side are set to be are short of attacking options before the start of the new season and they have reportedly outlined a short term move for the Mexican Old Trafford star as a solution.
The La Liga side are already understood to have a deal lined up take Real Zaragoza’s striker Helder Postiga to the club as a replacement for Soldado but Los Che also want Hernandez to bolster their numbers in attack.
Despite expecting to receive a big sum for Soldado, Valencia have a very limited summer budget and will only be able to afford a loan move for Hernandez who could fancy a chance to play regular first team football ahead of the World Cup in Brazil.
However Moyes is unwilling to lose one of his strikers ahead of the new campaign especially with uncertainty remaining about Wayne Rooney’s future at the club. Although the 25-year-old Mexico striker has only been used sparingly in the last two seasons, he could still have an important role to play with Moyes’ new-look United side.
The news will come as another blow to Valencia manager Mirsolav Djukic, who has admitted that a deal to take Soldado to Tottenham was all but completed and he confessed that his side are thin on the ground in attack even if the former Real Madrid man remained at the club.
He said: “Soldado is a very good professional, and if his exit to Tottenham is confirmed shortly, we will wish him all the luck in the world,
“We are looking at various options for is he leaves, because we would have too few forwards, even if he stayed.”
