The Nerazzurri secured the services of Hernanes from Lazio in January and announced Nemanja Vidic will join from United on a free in the summer last week.

Thohir has promised more big-name signings but refuted talk of a double swoop for Hernandez and Torres.

At the end of the season we will evaluate everything, both the young players and the more experienced ones,’ Thohir said at a press conference on Monday.

‘We want to build a strong squad for the future with a view not just to next season but to the next three.

‘I think he Hernandez is a good player. But we haven’t spoken to either him or Fernando Torres.’
