Five potential clubs for Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez
It has emerged that Manchester United, 16/1 with Coral to win the Premier League, are likely to sell Mexico striker Javier Hernandez at the end of the season.
He is currently on loan at Real Madrid, where he has scored four goals in 14 appearances across all competitions, plus four assists.
In light of the news that the club will sell him in the summer, Coral have compiled five possible destinations for the 26-year-old.
If he is content playing second fiddle to Karim Benzema, Chicharito will win trophies if he decides to make a permanent move to Los Blancos, and he seems to fit their style of play. With Real competing on every front each season, Hernandez will get chances, and the club wouldn’t have to pay a lucrative amount if they decided to sign him permanently.
They have been linked with him before, and are in the market for a striker. However, Spurs play with one frontman, which is likely to mean he competes with the clinical Harry Kane for a starting spot. Tottenham could afford the transfer fee; believed to be between £10m-£15m, and would add quality, as well as European experience to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
Having sent Fernando Torres back to Chelsea, who swiftly returned to boyhood club Atletico Madrid on a permanent deal, the Rossoneri could do with a striker. In Hernandez, they will get a proven goalscorer and the player will get a chance to become a cult hero at one of the most iconic clubs in the world.
An interesting option for Hernandez, if Ronald Koeman can sell him the vision of qualifying for European football. Pairing him up with Graziano Pelle would make for an intriguing strike partnership and significantly boost the Saints goalscoring potential.
Recently beat Real, and are a club on the rise, with money to spend and plenty of ambition. Pairing him up with exciting young Spanish international striker Paco Alcacer could form one of the most devastating partnerships in Europe, and would definitely take the club to the next level, along with a raft of other excellent signings. Also, playing in the Champions League next season with the club is a real possibility.
