Real Madrid plot move to sign Javier Hernandez
Italian media have been reporting for the past 48 hours or so that Serie A giants Juventus have almost sealed a deal for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez. Sportmediaset even claimed that the Bianconeri have agreed a personal deal with the Mexican striker and are waiting for a response from Manchester United.
Hernandez, who enjoyed a great first season with Manchester United, has played a peripheral role in the last couple of seasons. He has struggled to get regular games, while his national team coach has urged him to leave the Old Trafford club in order to get his career back on track.
Manchester United ideally would be looking to offload him permanently but so far they’re receiving only loan offers for him. So far, only Italian clubs had shown an interest in signing him, but latest report from Italy suggest the Mexican might get a huge offer from one of the biggest clubs in the world that might prove to be too tempting for him to refuse.
Respected Italian journalist GDM now claim that Real Madrid have joined the race to sign the Mexican on loan. Carlo Ancelotti is a big fan of the Mexican striker and that the Los Blancos are in negotiation with Manchester United at the moment to sign the striker on a season long loan.
Juventus, as mentioned earlier are also in the mix but they are happy to see the development going here before making any formal move again.
Real Madrid are thought to be looking to sign another striker to their ranks and are linked with a temporary move for Radamel Falcao. It seems like they are keeping all options open and the last couple of days could become highly exciting in the transfer market.
