Chicharito Hernández wants to end this season with Real Madrid before making a decision about his future. The Mexican player will then return to Manchester United and take a look at his options, but he would want to stay in Europe. Chicharito received an offer to join Orlando City FC but the Mexican did not want to pay attention to it just yet, according to Marca.

Manchester United would like to get something around €20 million for Chicharito, but not many clubs will be willing to spend that much. While Hernández wants to stay in Real Madrid, Los Blancos are not planning to make that kind of effort to sign the Mexican permanently.

Chicharito has had an inconsistent season but he's usually delivered when given the chance, like when he scored the game-winning goal against Atlético de Madrid in the Champions League Quarterfinals. Real Madrid could've exercise a buyout clause in his loan deal but decided to wait instead, something that speaks clearly about their intentions towards Chicharito.
