Orlando City enquire about Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez

by Richard Laverty

Brand new MLS side Orlando City want to bring Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez to the USA at the end of the season.

Despite starting the first Premier League game of the season, Louis van Gaal deemed Hernandez surplus to requirements and he was loaned to Real Madrid with Radamel Falcao coming in on loan.

According to reports, Orlando’s large Latin-American fan base could be a clinching factor in bringing the popular Mexican striker to North America, five years after he left the continent for Old Trafford.

It appeared an odd move for Hernandez to make in pursuit of regular football given Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have the front three spots locked out, the striker would probably have got much more game time with United.

He has made just a handful of appearances for Madrid, scoring two superb goals on his debut back in 2014 but simply hasn’t had the chance to capitalise on a bright start due to the form of Carlo Ancelotti’s main star players.

The report also suggests Southampton, Stoke, West Ham and Everton are all interested with United willing to sell for around £8million.

Wolfsburg, AC Milan, Lazio and Inter Milan are also keen on the 26-year-old who has one year left on contract and will almost certainly leave permanently this summer.
