Jose Mourinho will step up his attempts to sign Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez and wants Nemanja Vidic to complete a double raid, according to reports.
Real Madrid have been linked with a move for ‘Chicharito’ for a few months and it now seems as though they will follow through on their interest.
The Mexican youngster has been a revelation for Manchester United so far this season, taking to Barclays Premier League football like a duck to water with six goals in just 14 games.
Sir Alex Ferguson signed ‘Little Pea’ from Guadalajara in the summer for just £7 million and now the Spanish heavyweights will make a bid the equivalent to three times that value.
With Karim Benzema possibly on his way out and Gonzalo Higuain a long-term absentee through injury, there is a space for another attacker and Hernandez’s would style of play would suit the Spanish league.
Real also want to take Vidic away from Old Trafford and could even offer first teamer Pepe in exchange.
Manchester United have been reportedly monitoring the Portuguese defender’s contract talks, which are not going madrid’s way, and have been linked with a move for him so Mourinho wants to use that as leverage to sign the Serbian.
Fergie is unlikely to want to sell either, though, due to their importance to Manchester United’s title challenge this season.
