Bernabeu wants Old Trafford goal machine.
Real Madrid are expected to make an astonishing £30million for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
The 23-year-old enjoyed a fine debut season in the Premier League, winning the title, scoring 21 goals and helped his country win the Gold Cup.
The Mexico international has emerged as the top transfer target for Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, who has lost interest in Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez.
But the Special One will have a fight on his hands as United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is desperate to keep Chicharito at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have offered him a new five-year deal, tripling his wages from £25,000 to £75,000, according to the Sun.
But Real would be prepared to double that again and pay a transfer fee which represents five times what United bought the striker for when they took him from Chivas for £6m just 18 months ago.
Real boss Jose Mourinho could make his move in the January transfer window but believes his best chance of getting the player will come next summer.
