Atleti target Javier Hernandez

Atletico Madrid could be targeting a move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, according to reports.

Terra believe that the capital club are sounding out a move for the Mexican forward with Radamel Falcao looking ever more likely to leave Vicente Calderon.

The Colombian goalscorer has been linked with transfers to Real Madrid, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, and it seems as if Diego Simeone's team are resigned to losing their marksman.

And as such see the 24-year-old as the ideal replacement for 'El Tigre'.

A bid of around €16m could be enough to prize Chicarito away from Old Trafford, who has scored 44 goals for the Premier League side since his arrival in 2010.
