Orlando City ready to make move for Man Utd striker Chicharito

MLS club Orlando City SC have revealed that they are in pursuit of Javier Hernandez.

The expansion franchise, who are competing in MLS for the first time this season, have been linked with the Manchester United striker for some time but reports have always been denied by the club.

However, Orlando City owner Flavio Augusto da Silva has said that the Lions are indeed after Chicharito who is expected to leave Old Trafford this summer.

"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," said Da Silva said in the 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."
