Alexis Sanchez, Jamie Vardy, Javier Hernandez

12 January 2018

Manchester United have inquired over the availability of Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy and West Ham United outcast Javier Hernandez as Jose Mourinho bids to add to his attack in the January transfer window.

The Red Devils are reportedly looking for a back-up option to Romelu Lukaku, with former Sweden global Zlatan Ibrahimovic back on the sidelines due to injury.

In a shocking turn of events, The Telegraph had earlier reported that Jamie Vardy is one of a number of options that Manchester United are looking to bolster their options up front.

Alexis Sanchez is also a target for United but Manchester City remain confident of securing a deal for the Chile global either this month or at the end of the season.

Sanchez is still likely to move to Manchester City so United could be on the lookout for other striking options.

The England worldwide would bring goals and has 10 for the season already for the Foxes. The Premier League champions-elect have submitted a £25m bid to Arsenal and will offer the player wages of £250,000-a-week.

Lukaku enjoyed a stunning start to his career at Old Trafford, scoring 11 goals in his first ten games following a £75m move from Everton, but has netted just three league goals since mid-October.

Mourinho is a known admirer of Hernandez, who spent five years at Old Trafford between 2010 and 2015 and won two Premier League titles, having spoke highly of the Mexican last year.

While he would probably be keen on a return to United, it would be something of a gamble and there's no guarantee he could recover the form that made him such a hit with the Red Devils.
