Javier Hernández's departure from Manchester United is, alas, looking increasingly inevitable, with three high-profile teams reportedly in for the Mexican striker.
ESPN's Diego Cora -- who earlier suggested that Chicharito was certainly heading for Monaco -- has since reported that Tottenham Hotspur and Atlético Madrid are also in the race to sign the 25-year-old:

Unsurprisingly they're three very good clubs, with Hernández having proven himself to be a very good goalscorer at United since joining from hometown club Guadalajara back in 2010. However, his lack of contribution to all-round play has seen him never really establish himself as a first-team starter, and now it looks like he'll be moving on.
It'll be a shame to see him depart, though he'll certainly excel at a club which can accommodate him better than United can.
