Manchester United and Real Madrid have agreed a loan deal for Javier Hernandez, with the player's wages the only outstanding issue in the way of a move according to Spanish journalist Guillem Baague.
The Mexican looks destined to leave Old Trafford after being made available by boss Louis van Gaal, and it was suggested that Juventus could be a possible destination.
However Real Madrid have emerged as shock contenders for his signature over the last 24 hours, and now it looks as though the deal is gathering pace. According to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague the agreement is in place for the Mexican to head to the Bernabeu ahead of the window slamming shut at midnight on Tuesday.
The move is likely to come as a shock to Manchester United fans, although it is no surprise that Hernandez is leaving Old Trafford.
He made just six Premier League starts last season and managed just four goals, and he's played just one of Manchester United's three Premier League games so far with Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney preferred in attack.
The forward is likely to be joined by a host of players heading out of the door at Manchester United. Tom Cleverley is close to joining Aston Villa - although Hull City are also in the running - while Danny Welbeck could join either Tottenham or Everton. Anderson will also be shipped out if a buyer can be found.
There could be some new arrivals too; Daley Blind is about to become the club's fifth signing of the summer, and they are still working on a deal for Arturo Vidal from Juventus.
Away from the transfer window the Red Devils are still searching for their first win under Van Gaal following their 0-0 draw against Burnley on Saturday.
