The Spanish giants are unsure over keeping the on-loan Mexican international beyond this season, with the ex-Red Devil struggling to establish himself as a regular starter for Carlo Ancelotti’s side this term.
Still, the 26-year-old has impressed on occasion and could have a role to play as a backup forward to first-choice front-man Karim Benzema, and the club want more time to mull it over, according to talkSPORT.
Hernandez looks unlikely to have a place in Louis van Gaal’s United team anytime soon, despite also showing prolific form whenever used in his time at Old Trafford, particularly under his first manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Still, it is thought that United will look for other buyers for Chicharito this summer if Real choose not to sign him permanently.
