There seems to be no let-up of Spurs willingness to sign players this summer following the much anticipated move of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
The latest target on Andres Villas-Boas hit list appears to be Manchester United’s Mexican international Javier Hernandez, who will not come cheap as United will be looking for around £15 million for their goal scoring machine.
According to reports Spurs have approached the champions about Chicharito who has an excellent record with United even though he cannot seem to get a regular spot in the team.
AVB knows that he could use a new finisher at Spurs, with the possible sale of current striker Jermaine Defoe very much a possibility knowing that several Premiership clubs are interested.
The Mexican would slot in well to the team AVB has been building at White Hart Lane, and besides getting more playing time would be the perfect asset to Spurs as they aim for a Champions League spot finish.
Now here is the sticking point, and it is two-fold, firstly United will be looking to sell for around £15 million while Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would like to sign him for half of that.
Secondly United manager David Moyes will need to make a quick decision as he would need to replace Hernandez with another striker that would be happy to feature as a sub similar to what Hernandez has done, and with Levy know to be a very slow and methodical negotiator as we have seen in the dealings with Gareth Bale there might not be enough time to get a deal done.
