Inter chief: No contact with Hernandez or Torres

Though confirming his admiration for the Manchester United forward, Erick Thohir denies that an approach has been made for either striker to join the Nerazzurri this summer
Inter owner Erick Thohir denied that his team has been in talks with Javier Hernandez and Fernando Torres about a transfer to the San Siro.

Goal understands that Valencia and Atletico Madrid are interested in signing the Manchester United forward, with the Red Devils willing to sell, and the Nerazzurri have been linked with the Mexico international as well.

Torres, who has often struggled since his 50 million pound move from Liverpool to Stamford Bridge, is also expected to leave in the summer, but Thohir is adamant that neither player has been approached.

"At the end of the season we will evaluate everything, both the young players and the more experienced ones, because we want to build a strong squad for the future with a view not just to next season but to the next three," he told the press.

"I think Hernandez is a good player but we haven't spoken to either him or Fernando Torres."

Inter has already secured the signature of veteran center back Nemanja Vidic from United, with the Serbian heading to Serie A upon the expiry of his contract at the end of the season.
