Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is making a shock move for Manchester United's Mexican goal machine Javier Hernandez - but will have to pay £15million.
Big-spending Spurs have approached the Premier League champions about the little striker who seemingly cannot get close to winning a regular spot in manager David Moyes' No.1 side.
Villas-Boas knows he needs a new finisher and there are few better than the man known as Chicharito whose record is excellent despite his frequent spells out of United's starting XI.
Spurs could sell Jermain Defoe before the window shuts - the England striker is being chased by several clubs who are ready to bid if they encouraged.
Hernandez would be a more-than-adequate replacement and would fit in with their style and help ease the demands of a busy season at home and abroad.
United are not pushing out the Mexico international who has never given them any trouble but a sizeable bid may see his spell at Old Trafford end.
