Real Madrid will attempt to persuade Sir Alex Ferguson to sell them Mexican youngster Javier Hernandez by offering defensive midfielder Lassana Diarra and around £22m for the starlet striker. The offer may well interest the Old Trafford boss who has long been an admirer of the former Chelsea, Portsmouth and Arsenal star.

With Owen Hargreaves once again out with injury and there still being question marks over the likes of Anderson and Michael Carrick, albeit both have improved in recent weeks, Man United could well do with a solid battling midfielder to help break down opposition attacks and the pint sized Real Madrid man is player who is well used to life in the Premier League and would presumably jump at the chance of such a move.

Spanish media sources believe that Jose Mourinho is extremely impressed with Javier Hernandez’s progress both at club and national level and wants to bring the 22 year old the Bernabeu but knows that any offer he makes to Ferguson would have to be extra special to convince the Scot to allow a player of such potential to leave.

Hernandez has netted seven goals in nine starts and is still a little way off becoming a first team regular with the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney Ferguson’s preferred first choice pairing. Real Madrid boss Mourinho has made it his priority as the boss of the La Liga giants to snap up the best up and coming young talents and bring them to the Bernabeu and he wants to add the Guadalajara born youngster to his impressive collection of recent signings that have included the likes of Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira and Angel Di Maria.
