Real Madrid are eyeing Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez. Real president Florentino Perez is a big fan of Chicharito and was frustrated when United beat them to his signature while he was coming through at Chivas.

Perez knows signing a Mexican star would be a huge money spinner for Real and has been encouraged by the player's battle for regular first team action at United this season.

Madrid sources say should Real make a serious move for Chicharito, they expect United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to demand Sergio Ramos in part exchange.
