Javier Hernandez has attracted interest from the MLS with Orlando City keen on signing the striker

Mexican striker Javier Hernandez, who is on a loan spell to Real Madrid from Manchester United is attracting interest from the Major League Soccer (MLS). According to Marca, MLS outfit Orlando City are reportedly interested in signing the Mexican striker.

The club already has Brazilian midfielder and former Real Madrid player Kaká in their ranks and would like to add ‘Chicharito’ to their squad. The Florida-based club want to build a team capable of challenging for trophies and want to bring in marquee players starting with Hernandez.

The club, however, are not keen on signing star players who are past their prime. The 26-year-old fits the bill perfectly as he’s still got age on his side and has commercial value owing to his popularity in North America.

The deal, however, does not look to go through as the striker’s agent has said that his client is not yet ready move to the USA.

Hernandez is more interested in continuing his career in Europe. The Mexican would favour staying in La Liga or moving back to the English Premier League or even consider a stint in the Bundesliga.

The Manchester United loanee was keen on moving to the ‘Los Blancos’ permanently, although that looks unlikely at the moment.

Hernandez could be on the move in the summer, but it will most likely be to a European club rather than the MLS.
