Permanent move

However, it is now being reported by El Confidencial that Real Madrid are prepared to pursue a permanent agreement for Hernandez, and have been negotiating with Manchester United as these final hours of the transfer window tick along.

The Spanish newspaper outlines that an opening bid of €20 million has been made for the Mexico international, with Real Madrid having focused their attention on the acquisition of Hernandez having decided not to sign Radamel Falcao - despite the frequent advances of Jorge Mendes.

Surplus to requirements

Hernandez would appear surplus to requirements at Old Trafford with Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie the favoured forward pairing of Louis van Gaal, and his predecessor David Moyes, and the 26-year-old will have to accept a place on the bench or move on.

And while his prospects for regular first-team football may also be remote at Real Madrid, there should at least be more opportunities given the club's involvement in several competitions, while Manchester United are now restricted to only two following their departure from the Capital One Cup.
