Spanish giants keen to bring Mexican to the capital.
La Liga champions Real Madrid are eyeing an end-of-season swoop for unsettled Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez, says the Sunday Mirror.
The Mexico international has been warming the Old Trafford substitutes’ bench for the majority of this campaign following the summer arrival of fellow front man Robin van Persie from Arsenal.
And, with the Netherlands international currently enjoying a sensational debut season in front of goal for the Red Devils in combination with England centre-forward Wayne Rooney, the 24-year-old feels that it may now be time to move on and seek a new career challenge.
Hernandez has still somehow managed to find the back of the net on 15 occasions so far this campaign, and that in only 26 appearances, and it is that kind of eye for goal that has attracted Madrid to the player.
Real actually tried to bring the forward to the Spanish capital after the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa, only for the player to opt to join United instead, with the club even offering Hernandez a new bumper five-year deal with a pay rise in Oct 2011 in order to head off potential interest in the striker yet again from the Madrid giants.
