According to France Football, United manager, Jose Mourinho is still in search of defensive options and is ready to pay Hernandez’s release clause of £72million.

The French newspaper claimed that the Old Trafford club are believed to be admirers of the 22-year-old World Cup winner, who is as adept at centre-back as at left-back.

Hernandez’s versatility makes him an attractive prospect to Mourinho and United, particularly after a shaky start to the 2018/19 Premier League campaign that saw them lost to Tottenham and Brighton.

United chiefs failed to deliver a new centre-back for their manager in the summer which led to friction between Mourinho and executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, but the club are preparing to make amends in the January transfer window.
