Inter Milan have made an £8m move for Manchester United striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez, according to reports.

The Mexican forward, who spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, scoring seven goals for the Spanish giants, and has been targeted by Inter manager Roberto Mancini.

Hernandez could join the exodus of strikers from Old Trafford this summer, with Radamel Falcao, who was on loan and has left, and Robin van Persie, who has been linked with Juventus.

One player that has moved to United, however, is Memphis Depay. The Dutch international, 21, moved from PSV Eindhoven for a reported £25m on a four-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year.

"This is a dream come true for me; to play for the biggest club in the world and also to have the chance to work with someone who I believe is the best manager in the world, Louis van Gaal," Depay told Manchester United's official website. "I have great belief in my ability and I work hard to strive to achieve my dreams.

"I have been at PSV Eindhoven since I was 12 years old and I would like to thank them for everything. It was a great moment when we won the league and I was so happy to be part of that. This is now a new chapter in my life and one that I am looking forward to."
