Orlando City are interested in bringing Manchester United striker Javier Hernández to Major League Soccer.

Hernández, 26, is nearing the end of his season-long loan spell at Real Madrid but it remains to be seen whether the La Liga giants will exercise their option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season.

A host of Serie A clubs have also been credited with being interested in the Mexico international but Orlando City, who marked their first season in the MLS with the arrival of the Brazillian former World Player of the Year Kaká this term, are hopeful of tempting him to the US.

"I think that Chicharito, as he has proved at Real Madrid, would fit into our team very nicely," Orlando head coach Adrian Heath told MLS Soccer.

"He is a quality player and I don't think there is a team in the MLS that wouldn't want him, we are included in that. We will see of it comes to fruition; I will be delighted if it does."

Hernandez looked to have boosted his chances of earning a permanent transfer to Real Madrid when he capitalised on the absence of Karim Benzema, scoring the winner in his side's Champions League quarter-final showdown with Atlético Madrid before adding another brace in the 4-2 win over Celta Vigo on 26 April.

But following his recovery from injury, Benzema immediately returned to the first team with Hernandez again dropping to the bench.

Hernandez's agent, Eduardo Hernandez revealed in late April the La Liga giants had requested more time to make their decision on the striker.

"Real Madrid asked me to wait, take a little time," Eduardo Hernandez was quoted as saying my Medio Tiempo. "The agreement I had with them at the meeting was that we would wait for Real's commitments [their season] to finish to see what the future holds.

"We have right now a definite goal; the most important thing is that he keeps playing, keeps having an input and has the opportunity to keep scoring. It is the priority now."
