Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez could well make a €45 million (£40 million) move to La Liga side Valencia, according to Spanish newspaper AS.

The Mexico international was a fans’ favourite in the Sir Alex Ferguson days but was never guaranteed regular first-team football and sold by Louis van Gaal as a result.

Hernandez has shown exactly what he is capable of at Bayer Leverkusen, quickly becoming one of German football’s most-feared strikers after a glut of goals both domestically and in the Champions League for the BayArena outfit.

Valencia have struggled this season after a number of summer sales, with Cesare Prandelli recruited to try and overturn the Mestalla side’s fortunes.

Los Che offloaded key striker Paco Alcacer to Barcelona over the summer and as such have been left light of options in the final third.

The report suggests that Valencia owner Peter Lim will fund a big-money move for Hernandez in January and is willing to meet the Mexican’s Leverkusen release clause.
