The Corriere dello Sport is reporting that Juventus have agreed personal terms with Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez.
The Turin outfit, who have been reported this week as still in for the Mexico international, reportedly met with the player’s agent yesterday and reached agreement regarding proposed wages.
The Bianconeri and Hernandez, fondly known as Chicharito, must now wait for the green light from Manchester United.
This is expected today and will come in the form of a proposed loan move that would include the option for Juve to buy him outright at the end of the season.
It is thought that United might use the deal as a bargaining tool in their pursuit of Arturo Vidal. The Chilean has been top of the wanted list at Old Trafford for some time, and the Italian media is reporting that Louis van Gaal's side could offer €43m on top of Hernandez for the talented midfielder.
The Corriere dello Sport also suggests that Juve are working behind the scenes to bring in either Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot or Atalanta's Daniele Baselli as possible replacements for Vidal.
