Orlando City have moved to confirm they are negotiating a deal for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
The Mexico star is widely expected to leave Old Trafford this summer and he has now been offered an opportunity to move to Major League Soccer.
Orlando City owner Augusto da Silva has confessed that they are currently in talks with Manchester United.
“Regarding Chicharito, of course he’s a great player that every club in the world would love to have and we’d love the chance to have him,” Augusto da Silva told Orlando Sentinel.
“Right now we don’t have anything done, and you know during the process of negotiations – where many clubs have interest, including us, because why not – the less we talk about it the better. So we’ll see if there is a possibility and then we’ll move forward.
“We hope in one or two weeks to be ready to talk about Chicharito in a different way.”
Javier Hernandez returned to Manchester United after a pretty successful loan spell with Real Madrid, with los Blancos eventually opting against signing him on permanent basis.
The highly rated forward was forced to miss the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup after suffering a broken collarbone in a warm-up game against Honduras.
The Mexican now has an important decision to make regarding his future, and the promise of getting regular playing time should be a main concern for the player having been mostly restricted to substitute appearances over the last few years.
