No doubt the La Liga side are considering their options should they, as expected, lose their prized asset Radamel Falcao this summer. A move to sign Chicharito is a very wise one to consider, especially as the 24 year old continues to struggle to secure a regular spot in Sir Alex Ferguson’s first team set-up.

The Guadalajara born forward has been handed just six Premier League starts thus far this season but has still managed to score eight goals, 16 in total in all competitions. That’s the kind of form most sides would deem more than worthy of regular football.

However with Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck to accommodate one can see why Sir Alex Ferguson struggles to use Hernandez more often.

Hernandez has stated his love for Man United on many occasions but given that the prolific marksman is a few months from his 25th birthday he may feel that in order to continue his career progression he must move on and a move to join Atletico Madrid may be the ideal one for the Old Trafford fan favourite to consider.
