United consider offers for striker

Cape Town - Juventus are going head-to-head with the Valencia to secure the services of Mexican striker Javier Hernandez.

The Guardian is reporting that Manchester United have received two offers for the transfer of Javier Hernandez.

The bids are reported to be in the region of £12 million to £15 million for the striker.

He has scored 59 goals in 152 appearances for United over four seasons.

Both Hernandez and Danny Welbeck, who were toothless in attack against MK Dons during the week, have been told they can leave Manchester United.

Gaal said: “I cannot say anything about that because it raises the price."

"The club shall comment when the time is there to announce it.

"We cannot react on every rumour. Also players shall go in the meantime.

"I had a conversation after lunch with the players and I said maybe after this weekend we shall have another group because players shall go away and others shall come in.”

United have promoted the teenager James Wilson to the first-team squad meaning that both Hernandez and Welbeck may be allowed to leave.

Welbeck's position is more delicate with the club expecting to receive a fee of £20 million. Hull City have expressed an interest in the forward but Welbeck does not want to leave for a team outside the top eight.

Manchester United are not willing to sell Welbeck to a rival, ruling out Arsenal and Spurs' interest in the player.
