Manchester United star Javier Hernandez could join Real Madrid before tomorrow's transfer deadline after the Bernabeu outfit inquired about his services.
This has been reported by the Daily Mail, who have suggested that the Spanish giants want to take the Mexican striker on loan as they could miss out on Monaco forward Radamel Falcao and Manchester City star Alvaro Negredo.
It's not surprising that Chicharito could be on his way out of Old Trafford after a disappointing couple of years at the club. Last season, as Manchester United endured a nightmare campaign under David Moyes, the forward only hit the net on four occasions in the Premier League.
And, this term, with Louis van Gaal now in charge at the Theatre of Dreams, Hernandez has once again been in and out of the team. He disappointed against the MK Dons as the Red Devils were humiliated against the League One outfit earlier this week, and he was an unused substitute against Burnley yesterday.
Real in need?
Carlo Ancelotti's side have certainly been on the lookout for a new striker for some time, as they look to add competition in the forward department. The Spanish giants, are in need of a back-up striker for French ace Karim Benzema, and it appears that the club have identified Hernandez as the man that could help them go in search of glory this term.
It remains to be seen, however, as to whether Manchester United will let Hernandez leave for Spain before tomorrow's deadline.
