In news that has panicked our Manchester United fans here at the Football Transfer Tavern it has been claimed by the Daily Mirror that forward Javier Hernandez is on the radar of Real Madrid.
The forward quickly became a fan favourite at Old Trafford upon joining and the fact that he has managed to bag 15 goals in 26 appearances this season is something that only endeared him to the United faithful even more.
The 24-year-old himself is growing discontented with life at the club however and would be open to a move that could well guarantee him first team football. Given the fact that Chicharito has to compete with not only Wayne Rooney but also Danny Welbeck and Robin van Persie, chances are few and far between and with Real Madrid on the look out for a forward this could well be the chance of a life time for Little Pea.
Real Madrid have grown frustrated at both their current centre forwards with Gonzalo Higuain not seen as consistent enough and Karim Benzema never really finding his feet at the club. Add to this interest in Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid and Jose Mourinho’s men are after another goal scorer.
