The Serie A side, now managed by Massimiliano Allegri following Antonio Conte’s departure earlier this summer, are ready to offer an initial €2m (£1.5m) loan deal for the coming season which would include a stipulation that the Turin side could then permanently sign the Mexican in a €6m (£4.7m) deal.
That’s an offer that doesn’t really come close to reflecting the 26 year old’s true value and is one that is likely to be turned down flat by the Old Trafford side.
Whilst Hernandez has struggled to retain a foothold in the Man United started eleven during his four seasons at the club he has still scored at a healthy rate and clearly has the potential to make a name for himself elsewhere.
Chicharito has netted 59 goals in 152 appearances for Man United, a stat that is all the more impressive when you consider 69 of those appearances were from the bench.
If Allegri fails to land Hernandez he will then apparently turn to PSG’s Ezequiel Lavezzi or Man City man Stevan Jovetic.
