Valencia management still fuming losing out to Man Utd for Chicharito

Valencia management are still upset over missing out on Manchester United star Javier Hernandez.

Superdeporte reveals Valencia had a deal in place for Chicharito with Chivas before United managed to step in and sign the striker.

Valencia were willing to pay the £6 million Chivas were demanding as they saw Chicharito as a readymade replacement for the Barcelona-bound David Villa. Valencia chiefs also knew the Mexican's arrival would open the door to a new merchandising opportunity in his country.

But dithering from Valencia over personal terms opened the door to United, which swooped for the striker in April - two months before the actual opening of the summer transfer window.
