Report: Another United Striker Set To Follow Van Persie To Turkey

It seems like half of Manchester United’s title winning team of 2013 are heading to Turkey. Nani and Robin van Persie have already signed for Fenerbahce – the latter unveiled to adoring new supporters today – and Rafael is also being linked with a move to Galatasaray.

Reports are now emanating that Javier Hernandez may move to Besiktas.

From turkish-football.com :

Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez’s agent Marijo Knez has confirmed that he has held talks with Besiktas over the transfer of the Mexico international.

“Besiktas are interested in Chicharito,” Knez told Radyospor.

“Let’s see what happens, it all depends on the talks but I do not think we are talking a very high fee.”
Besiktas are on the hunt for a new striker after selling last seasons top scorer Demba Ba to the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua for €13 million last week.

Hernandez spent last season on loan at La Liga giants Real Madrid after falling out of favour with Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.

The former Chivas striker’s future is unclear following a broken collarbone which will rule him out of the Gold Cup. The injury is expected to keep the Hernandez out of pre-season training for another three weeks.

Besiktas will compete in the Europa League this season after finishing the Turkish Super Lig in third place behind Fenerbahce and Galatasaray.

United legend Gordon Hill recently told us that he felt Hernandez ought to be given another chance at Old Trafford but it appears that he is surplus to requirements under manager Louis van Gaal.

West Ham have been linked with a £9m offer for the Mexican and Liverpool were even rumoured to be interested but it seems as if United will let the striker go abroad.
