Chicharito's agent: Other clubs interested, but he's Madrid's if they want him

Per his agent, Real Madrid have first rights to Chicharito, but the clock is ticking.

Javier Hernández's agent, Eduardo Hernández (who is not in fact his father), said Monday, "If Madrid accept to sign Chicharito before (the) April 30th deadline, Manchester (United) can't do anything."

But Chicharito's recent form hasn't gone unnoticed by the rest of the world. Eduardo Hernández added, "After June, we will see the different options because I have had calls from other clubs asking about him."

This isn't the first time Hernández has given a vote of confidence about Chicharito's future in Madrid. His buyout clause is rumored to be only €10 million, which would be a steal for a player of his quality. While it's looking more and more likely Chicharito will wear white next season, it's a near certainty he won't be back in Manchester.

Real Madrid will have to make a decision about Chicharito sooner rather than later, and considering how well he's been playing lately, it would be reasonable to keep him around.
