Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is tracking Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez's progress at Old Trafford.

El Mundo Deportivo says Real president Florentino Perez still wants a big-name signing made this season and with Mourinho going cold on Santos whiz Neymar, the focus is turning to Chicharito.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is well aware of Real's interest in the Mexico international and has instructed the club's moneymen to bring forward plans to upgrade the striker's contract.

A new deal could be concluded in the coming months so to tie up Chicharito before the winter market opens in January.
