Valencia suffered a total renewal of their squad this summer and after the departure of Roberto Soldado, who joined Premier League side Tottenham, they were left without a proven goal scorer to command their attack this year as they are looking to contend in both La Liga and the UEFA Europa League.
Despite the signing of Portugal international Helder Postiga and the presence of Jonas, Los Che are reportedly looking to bolster their offensive line and they have set their sights on a target that currently doesn’t have enough minutes in England. This player is no other than Manchester United star Javier Hernandez.
The Mexican star would be a great fit for Valencia as he’s reportedly looking for a way out of Old Trafford, and the transfer could happen as soon as January if the Spaniards are really interested. He would thrive in a 4-2-3-1 system where he would be the focal point of attack, and could be able to display all of his poacher abilities.
Hernandez would also become in the best striker in the team and should see first-team minutes consistently, something that would only benefit him and his side as he has a proven track record when given enough playing time.
The only downside is that Manchester United are looking to receive at least €20 million if they were to sell Chicharito, and he also has a very high wage. If there’s some sort of agreement that can be met, then this is a move that could happen rather sooner than later.
Valencia would greatly benefit from having a player with the international experience Hernandez has, and his presence would vastly improve a team that is already dangerous but is lacking a proven scorer up front.
