Atletico keen on Javier Hernandez
Fox Sports is reporting that Atletico Madrid are showing interest in Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
The Mexican has returned to Old Trafford following a successful loan spell with Real Madrid, after los Blancos opted against making the transfer permanent.
But, it appears that Hernandez will be given an opportunity to return to Madrid after all, with Atletico Madrid now keen on his services.
Namely, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal plans to offload the talented footballer this summer and los Colchoneros seem ready to pounce.
Atletico have singled out Porto’s Jackson Martinez as a perfect replacement for Mario Mandzukic, but they could turn their attention to Hernandez if the Colombian moves elsewhere.
The 27-year-old did pretty well during the loan spell with Real Madrid, scoring 7 La Liga goals in as many starts, while also bagging the winner in the Champions League quarter-final against Atletico.
