Spurs: Pochettino dismisses Man United star rumour 

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has dismissed the rumours that the North London club are interested in signing Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez, reports from ESPN.

The 27-year-old spent his last season on loan at Real Madrid after being loaned out by manager Louis van Gaal last summer, but the Mexican international also struggled for first team football at the Bernabeu, scoring nine goals in 33 appearances for the La Liga giants.

Now Hernandez is being strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Lilywhites reportedly keen on the United striker.

However, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that the speculation about Hernandez to White Hart lane is nothing but rumours after his side lost the MLS All Stars 2-1 on Wednesday.

“About Javier Hernandez, those are rumours and nothing more,” the manager said.

“There is nothing concrete. He is a Manchester United player and logically a lot of names are getting suggested for Tottenham and Javier is just one more.”

With the club are set to lose both Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor, leaving only Harry Kane as a world-class striker, which means that Tottenham are expected to bring in another attacker this summer, but it doesn’t look that it will be Javier Hernandez.

Hernandez has only 12-months left on his contract with the Red Devils and is set to become a free agent next summer.
