Earlier in the day, we reported how Real Madrid and Manchester United are close to agreeing a €20 million fee for the United striker Javier Hernandez. If the deal goes through, Chicharito is expected to be the second player who will join Real Madrid from United this summer, first one of course being David De Gea.
This might not be a bad news for Man United as they are still in pursuit of Real Madrid star Gareth Bale according to Marca. Selling De Gea and Chicharito will definitely hand United fresh leverage in signing Bale in the summer.
Chicharito and De Gea’s sale would raise close to £55 million for Manchester United, that would only require United to pay further £40-45 million to sign Gareth Bale in the summer.
Manchester United have planned a £150 million transfer budget for the summer and since Bale’s transfer value will be cut down to £40-45 million, it will allow United to spend on their other key targets Mats Hummels, Nathaniel Clyne, Ilkay Gundogan and a goal scoring striker.
Gareth Bale would add great value to Manchester United’s play next season and since Bale’s tenure in Spain has been less than fruitful, it might trigger Fiorentino Perez to sell the Welshman to Manchester United on a player cash deal involving David De Gea and Javier Hernandez.
