Man Utd striker Chicharito again in Orlando City sights

Major League Soccer outfit Orlando City SC are again being linked with Mexican international Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez.


US television station WKMG-TV Local 6, based in Orlando, reported that the Manchester United striker, who spent last season on loan with Real Madrid, has been discussing a possible move with the MLS expansion club for a number of weeks.

A source reportedly told the news station's sport director David Pingalore 'there is a 65 to 70 percent chance of Orlando City signing him in the coming weeks'.

Hernandez scored the equalising goal in Mexico's 2-2 draw with Costa Rica at Orlando's home stadium, the Citrus Bowl, on Saturday but is now in doubt for the CONCACAF Gold Cup after sustaining a collarbone injury in a friendly against Honduras on Wednesday.
