Manchester United give Southampton confidence with striker is set to be sold

HernandezManchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are torn between which club will be the next destination for their loaned out striker after Metro revealed Southampton are confident of landing Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican international is currently on loan at Real Madrid and has had a tough season at the Bernabeu.

And plenty of people had made the assumption in the Tavern that Carlo Ancelotti would choose to not sign him permanently in the summer.

But this situation has been turned on its head in space of a week, after Hernandez scored the winner to put Real Madrid through in the Champions League last week as well as scoring two vital goals in their 4-2 win against Celta Vigo last night.

But despite his recent success in Spain, Ronald Koeman, will hope the Mexican has still not done enough to secure his future at Los Blancos.

Meaning he will return to Old Trafford and Louis van Gaal has made it clear he has no future at United.

So Saints will hope they can capitalise on this sticky situation as they look to secure a world class finisher.

Punters believe a striker should be the prime target for the south coast club after their hopes of finishing in the top four dwindled, after the goals dried up.

Manchester United fans. Do you think Javier Hernandez has done enough to secure his future at Real Madrid? Let us know your thoughts below.
