Real Madrid want loanee Javier Hernandez on permanent deal in January

According to the Express, Real Madrid are keen on signing Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez on a permanent deal when the January transfer opens.

The Mexican international, 26 joined the La Liga side on loan this season, and he’s so far impressed manager Carlo Ancelotti, scoring three goals and making one assist in four games.

Real had an option to buy at the end of the season, but it’s thought they want to make the deal permanent as early as possible. However, Manchester United reportedly want around £17M for the striker, which Los Blancos are so far unwilling to pay.

Considering Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal deemed Javier Hernandez surplus to requirements, Real would find it insulting to pay such a large sum of money, so the two sides will be negotiating a fee that is far for both parties.

Although still making the majority of appearances from the substitutes’ bench, Hernandez is thought to be very keen on a permanent move to join the Champions League holders this season, as he’s resigned to his United career having come to an end following talks with Van Gaal.
