Report: Hotspurs to Raid United for Hernandez and Fellaini


Marouane FellainiThe Tottenham Hotspur has reportedly put together a bid of more than $46 million to bring both Marouane Fellaini and Javier Hernandez to London’s White Hart Lane.

The duo for the Red Devils apparently was told they could move on from Old Trafford by Louis van Gaal the new manager.

Hernandez started on opening day in United’s loss to Swansea City but came off in the second half, while Fellaini was a late sub.

According to a number of reports in England, the new boss for Spurs Mauricio Pochettino wants to give both players a new start with the Spurs in North London after the two endured horrible seasons last campaign.

Hernandez a Mexican international known as Chicharito started only six matches in the Premier League last season and Pochettino has liked his predatory instincts from afar.

Fellaini the international for Belgium has struggled to shake the big price tag he brought with him from Everton of $50 million.

Chicharito has 59 goals in his 152 United appearances but his supersub role has diminished over the past year.

Tottenham are short of goals as Roberto Soldado has been misfiring and Emmanuel Adbayor is a veteran put prone to injury.

Erik Lamela the attacker from Argentina has started slow at the Lane.

Fellaini is the most intriguing part of this deal. There was a loan supposedly set up to send the Belgian to Napoli, but United might want to instead recoup part of the cash that was splashed out last summer for him.

If the deal works its way through, United will receive close to all the money, they paid to get Fellaini plus a free Chicharito bonus for Tottenham.

Both players would strengthen the squad at White Hart Lane and with the Dutchman at United interested to move them to bring in new signings, this deal seems like to would be good for both players and clubs.
