Inter Milan are preparing a swap bid for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

The Daily Star Sunday says Italian sources suggest Inter are willing to part with Fredy Guarin for Mexican icon Chicharito.

The Italian giants are desperate to sign a new striker this summer to give Walter Mazzarri more firepower up-front and United's Mexican hit-man fits the bill.

Louis van Gaal is keen to bolster his midfield and is scouring the market following the blow that Arturo Vidal is not interested in a move to Old Trafford.

Guarin is one player who the Dutch boss has kept tabs on and the Serie A club believe swapping the Colombian for United's fringe striker will work for both parties.
