MLS side Orlando City flirt with Chicharito signing

The future of Mexican striker Javier Hernandez continues to be uncertain. It seems increasingly unlikely that Real Madrid will take up their option to buy him, while rumours from Old Trafford suggest Van Gaal doesn’t want him back at Manchester United.

MLS side Orlando City, who recently signed Kaka, might be interested in the Mexican as an option to strengthen their forward line and at the same time charm their Latin American fans.

According to the Daily Mail, the Mexican is in the sights of the American club, but at they will face stiff competition for his signature from the likes of Southampton, Stoke City, West Ham and Everton – all of whom are interested in Chicharito and could be willing to pay up to £10.8 million.

If he were to join Orlando City, Hernandez would become one of their ‘Designated Players’, meaning he would not be restricted by the MLS’s salary structure and thus could earn more than the rest of his team mates.

Is the MLS a step down in Hernandez’s career or would it be a good move for him? Let us know!
