More than a few eyebrows where raised last week when Manchester United released the names of the players who travelled to the US last week.
Hernandez is arguably the most famous United player in America, but it looks like Hernandez will be joining his teammates in Los Angeles next week:
Hernandez made just six Premier League starts last season at United under David Moyes and Ryan Giggs, and has to be hoping that impressive preseason will catch the eye of Louis van Gaal and would lead to bigger and better things. His lack of playing time at Old Trafford cost him his starting role in the Mexico side at this summers World Cup and he wants to play on a regular basis. Something that is unlikely to happen at United
According to to talkSPORT and the Tuttosport, Serie A side Inter have offered Manchester United a £1.5 million fee in order to take Hernandez on a season-long loan next season, with the intention to pay a further £9.5 million to bring the player in permanently next year. In 12 months’ time, Hernandez will have just one season left to play out on his United contract, and a move could be more likely to materialise.
With no van Persie on the tour, will Hernandez be able to do enough to impress LVG or will he be heading to Italy by the end of the summer?
