The Mexican forward Javier Hernandez is keeping an eye to make a shock move to Major League Soccer side Orlando City at the end of the season, after Real Madrid refused to keep the 26-year-old at the Bernabeu, reports the Daily Star.
Hernandez, who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid, on loan from Manchester United has established himself as one of the best strikers at the Bernabeu this season but was unable to help the club to progress to the Champions League final, after they were beaten by the Italian champions Juventus on Wednesday.
The striker is a proven goalscoring machine in the Premier League and attracted the attention of Liverpool, Spurs, Everton, Southampton, and West Ham United.
But, the American franchise Orlando City head coach, Adrian Heath, is confident that they can lure him at the end of the season. “Chicharito (Hernandez) would solve a lot of issues. I think if we could get him, our ownership would do it,” said the manager.
Hernandez has scored six goals in 21 appearances for the La Liga side this season, If the deal goes through, he would be playing alongside Brazilian superstar Kaka.
