Javier Hernandez would be a perfect fit for Real Madrid

Its becoming more and more clear that Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez could be leaving Old Trafford in the summer.

'Chicharito' has been overlooked all too often this season by David Moyes and reports during the last transfer window suggested that the Mexican could be on his way out of the club.

Real Madrid have been linked with lots of players this season and some may reasonably think that another United striker in Robin Van Persie could one day be heading for the Bernabeu.

But Madrid could do a lot worse than giving Hernandez a go in the famous white shirt.

Many of you will think that Van Persie would be an obvious choice over Hernandez and most of the time I would agree 100%.

But Real Madrid are not your typical side.

Strikers at Madrid have to come to terms with the fact that they are playing second-fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo and now Gareth Bale too.

Nearly all their attacking play comes through those two and they need a striker who will make runs and feed off the scraps that Ronaldo and Bale leave and not get in their way.

Someone like Real Madrid legend Raul would fit the bill. Which is exactly what Hernandez is about.

I'm not saying Hernandez is as good as Raul was, but they are very similar strikers. Both are clinical finishers, great goal poachers, find themselves in the right place in the right time and rarely score from outside the box.

Many strikers want to be the main player, have lots of the ball and have the freedom to make runs of their choice. Hernandez on the other hand would compliment the Madrid attack and not hinder it.

He won't mind spells without the ball. He doesn't make the same runs as Ronaldo or Bale and he's the perfect person to latch onto the end of a cross or a spillage from a goalkeeper.

Although it's an unlikely prospect, Hernandez to Madrid would be a bold move that I'm confident would be rewarded with success and most importantly: lots of goals.
