Old Trafford striker linked with move to the Vicente Calderon.
Atletico Madrid will make a £15m bid for Man United striker Javier Hernandez as they prepare for the very real possibility that their two main attacking weapons, Radamel Falcao and Adrian Lopez, are likely to leave the Vicente Calderon, so claim Goal.com.
The in form La Liga side are ready to make Chicharito the focal point of a new-look strike-force and Atletico boss Diego Simeone will hope the chance of regular first team football will tempt the Mexican into considering a move away from Old Trafford.

24 year old striker Hernandez signed a five-year contract in October 2011 but has fallen down the Man United pecking order with Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck all seemingly ahead of the prolific striker.
Hernandez has scored 12 goals this season despite having made just 13 starts in all competitions.
The former Guadalajara striker has found it hard to retain a spot in Sir Alex Ferguson’s starting eleven and may feel a move to Spain’s top tier could help his career progression.
Man United signed the lethal finisher in the summer of 2010 and he has scored a total of 44 goals in 103 appearances, a strike-rate that is all the more impressive when you consider 41 of those appearances came from the bench.
