No Man Utd return for Chicharito as Besiktas close on €8.5m deal


Javier Hernandez is close to leaving West Ham for Besiktas in an €8.5 million deal, as per reports.

The Mexico international only returned to English football in the summer of 2017, with the Hammers acquiring the former Manchester United striker from Bayer Leverkusen.

They invested £16 million in a proven Premier League performer, and handed him a three-year contract.

That agreement is, however, set to be broken after just six months, with a switch to Turkey about to be made.

A return to Old Trafford had been mooted for Hernandez, with Jose Mourinho in the market for support and competition to Romelu Lukaku.

The 29-year-old will not be getting that opportunity, though, as Besiktas have leapt to the front of the transfer queue.

The Turkish side’s chairman, Fikret Orman is in London and holding advanced talks with West Ham regarding Chicharito.
