Finally, Manchester United and Juventus are close to completing a deal. We still don’t know whether United can seal a deal for Arturo Vidal, but reports from Italy suggest, Juventus might secure a deal for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
The Mexican striker has dropped down the pecking orders at Old Trafford and is seen as surplus to requirements at Old Trafford. His national coach has earlier insisted that Hernandez needs to move elsewhere to get regular games under his belt.
Juventus are in dire need of a striker. The Bianconeri were linked with several top strikers this summer, including Falcao, but it seems like Hernandez represents the best possible option for them.
According to Sportmediaset, Juventus have agreed personal terms with the player after lodging a formal bid for the Mexican. The Serie A giants are waiting for the response of Manchester United.
The report claim that on Thursday, that is yesterday, Juventus have met with the player’s agent in Milan where they negotiated about the personal deal. Juventus have offered a loan move with a view to make it permanent.
Chicharito is therefore closer to securing a move and the deal could be completed today. United wanted a permanent transfer for him but with no other clubs in the market ready to sign him, the Red Devils are left with no options at the moment rather to accept the offers from Juventus.
