Following the boring saga involving Manchester City and Carlos Tevez there were rumours circulating that Jose Mourinho would benefit from the fallout and snap up Tevez in a transfer swoop. However, word now is Jose has his eyes set on another Latin sensation – one Javier Hernandez.
Reports suggest that The Special One has pleaded with his bosses at the Bernabeu to go to any length to sign the young hotshot, Fergie’s latest fledgling.
Hernandez has remained silent on the issue so far, but must be flattered by the attention from one of the world’s best coaches, and one of the world’s best clubs. Can Man Utd and Fergie compete and hold onto the ‘little pea’? And what sort of fee would prise him away from Sir Alex?
Could Hernandez fill the void left by Gonzalo Higuain? Why does Jose seem to not rate Karim Benzema? And will ‘Chicharito’ follow in the footsteps of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo and depart Old Trafford for Madrid?
Questions to be answered by January 1st and the opening of that transfer window.
