Internazionale have made their first official approach to sign Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
According to reports in Italy, the Nerazzurri have offered £8m to sign the Mexican with the Red Devils set to reject the offer as they intend to sell the 27-year-old for no less than £10m.
Meanwhile, coach Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure was very close to joining Internazionale.
"Actually he was the one to tell me that he wanted a change," Mancini told La Stampa.
"I spent six months speaking with him and telling him what he would have found here at Internazionale.
"Then he met with [Manchester City] and they decided not to sell."
