Valencia To Revive Interest In Manchester United Misfit This January

La Liga outfit keen on Red Devils striker.

Check in to Villarreal vs Valencia CF

Spanish side Valencia could be set to revive their interest in Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez this January, according to Inside Futbol.

The Mexican international reportedly turned down a move to the Mestalla during the summer as he aimed to fight for his place at Old Trafford, though he may be reconsidering after failing to nail down a regular starting spot for the Red Devils this season.

Despite looking an impressive player when he first joined the club in 2010, Hernandez has struggled for consistency and found himself in and out of the side in much of his career in England, and is now behind the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck in the pecking order.

Tottenham are also said to be interested in snapping up the 25-year-old, as manager Andre Villas-Boas seeks a new addition upfront this January, though the north London side will face competition from Valencia.

Having lost Roberto Soldado to Spurs in the summer transfer window, Valencia are still looking for a replacement for the Spaniard upfront, and manager Miroslav Dukic has identified Hernandez as an ideal like-for-like replacement upfront.

Hernandez has 51 goals in 121 appearances for United.
