Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez will not join Real Madrid on a permanent deal this summer, but will instead complete a move to another Premier League club, according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

The Mexican international is currently on a season-long loan at the Bernabeu, but has generally struggled to make an impression in Carlo Ancelotti’s side apart from last night’s late winner against rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Hernandez has also struggled to break into the United team on a regular basis in the last couple of years, and this surely means he is unlikely to get another chance at Old Trafford next term.
Still, according to the Daily Star, Balague has ruled out the possibility of Real meeting their buy-out clause to sign the player permanently, with a move to another Premier League club looking more likely.
“If Real Madrid want him there is a 10m euros [£7.15m] buyout clause. But they are not going to keep him,” he said.
“There are several big English clubs that want him, but I don’t think Manchester United want to keep him.
“He will move on to one of those other English clubs.”
Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are among the teams who could pounce to sign the 26-year-old.
