One Red Devils star, Portugal international Nani, has already completed a move to the Super Lig, having signed for Fenerbahce last weekend [BBC].

Robin van Persie looks set to follow his erstwhile teammate out of the club. The Guardian reported last weekend that the Dutch forward had agreed terms with Fener, while the club themselves revealed on Thursday that they were in negotiations with the former Arsenal man [BBC].

Now, Turkish newspaper Milliyet [via Turkish Football], have reported that Fenerbahce’s fierce rivals Besiktas—who complete the division’s ‘top three’ along with Galatasaray—are keen to sign Chicharito this summer.

According to reports, the Eagles are prepared to pay €6 million for the Mexico international, and see the unwanted frontman as an ideal candidate to replace Demba Ba, who moved to Shanghai Shenhua for €13 million last week [Sky Sports].

Hernandez spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, but was unable to establish himself in the first team at the Bernabeu. The Merengues ultimately opted not to keep the forward on at the club following the end of his loan deal [Daily Mail].

The likes of West Ham United have been linked with the 27-year-old, although a recent injury suffered while on international duty with El Tri may jeopardise his chances of securing a permanent move away from Old Trafford this summer [The Guardian].
