Real hoping that fee is reduced for Mexican striker Javier Hernandez.
Real Madrid are determined to sign Mexican striker Javier Hernandez on a permanent deal from Manchester United once his loan move ends at the end of the season, report the Express, but feel that the Red Devils’ current asking price for the former Guadalajara goal machine is too high.
Hernandez joined Real in the midst of Radamel Falcao’s shock loan move to Old Trafford from AS Monaco at the end of the summer transfer window and has made an instant impression on both Carlo Ancelotti and the Real Madrid faithful, scoring three goals in just four La Liga appearances.
That is similar to the start that he made at United, when Hernandez really caught the eye with his movement and finishing ability when he initially joined United from Mexican Primeira Liga side Guadalajara, with Hernandez still holding one of the most impressive goals-to-minute ratios in the history of the Premier League.
Despite his impressive goalscoring record, however, Hernandez fell out of favour at Old Trafford during the latter stages of his career, particularly following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, largely due to concerns about the player’s all-round game and ability to contribute more than just goals to a team.
