Real Madrid could make a January bid for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, it has been claimed.

According to El Mundo Deportivo, Real president Florentino Perez is striving desperately to bring a marquee signing to the Santiago Bernabeu in the new year, while Jose Mourinho is keen on Chicharito.

United, though, will reportedly attempt to tie Hernandez down to a new long-term deal after he enjoyed a sensational debut season at Old Trafford.

The Mexican forward netted a remarkable 20 goals during his first campaign as United won a 19th league title and progressed to the final of the Champions League.




 

It is little wonder then that 23-year-old is alleged to be attracting interest from elsewhere, although United are said to be confident he will commit to the club.

Hernandez has made two substitute appearances for United this season, having suffered a head injury during pre-season.
