Javier Hernandez heads AC Milan's wishlist as Liverpool are set to sign Mario Balotelli
The Mexican has fallen way down the pecking order for the Red Devils and we had already reported last week that the player has been advised by Mexican boss Miguel Herrera has advised Javier Hernandez to head for the exit at Old Trafford to get more game time on the pitch.
The 26 year old has attracted the likes of Inter Milan and La Liga winners Atletico Madrid but as United have put an enticing €11m price tag on the striker. Inter chief Erik Thohir had offered Fredy Guarin while Juventus had enquired on a possible loan deal with an option to buy. United have however rejected both the proposals and had asked potential suitors for a straight cash deal.
Now that Balotelli is set to sign for Liverpool, Milan have drawn a list to replace the controversial genius. Porto’s Jackson Martinez is the Italian side’s primary transfer target for the San Siro outfit but the €35m release clause will surely ward off their interest. Milan will now move for Hernandez as United would be willing to hear for offers for ‘Chicarito’, whose future at Old Trafford now looks dimmer with each passing day.
