Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is being mentioned as a possible reinforcement for Benfica, according to A Bola.
The two clubs are currently negotiating a deal that should see Nicolas Gaitan head to Old Trafford and the Red Devils are ready to allow one of their fringe players to move in the opposite direction.
And while full-back Rafael is also in the mix, chances are that Benfica would prefer signing striker Javier Hernandez, who is also nearing the summer exit.
The Mexican has returned to Old Trafford following a successful loan spell at Real Madrid, but he was forced to miss the 2015 Gold Cup tournament after breaking his collarbone.
Hernandez is desperate to leave Manchester United in search of first team football and a move to Benfica could prove beneficial for all the parties concerned.
The 27-year-old has spent last six years at Old Trafford, scoring 37 goals in 102 Premier League outings.
