Manchester United Attract Interest For Javier Hernandez
19 December 2012
MANCHESTER UNITED may have to fend off Barcelona for Javier Hernandez in the January transfer window.
Barcelona have emerged as a target for Hernandez, who has found first-team opportunities hard to come by this season at Old Trafford.
Hernandez, who is known affectionately as ‘Little Pea’, has been unable to get regular football for United as Robin van Persie has been scoring goals for fun this campaign.
Couple with that, Hernandez has tended to perform better coming off the bench, with his double last month away at Aston Villa a point in proof.
Spanish football site fichajes.net has it that Barca coach Tito Vilanova needs cover for David Villa who is destined to leave the Camp Nou.
They also claim that Barca are willing to offer £15m to take Hernandez away from Old Trafford.
United bought Hernandez for £6m in 2010.
