Cape Town - Real Madrid want to sign Mexican striker Javier Hernandez on a permanent deal but only on a reduced fee.

Hernandez has settled in well at Madrid and has impressed Los Blancos boss, Carlo Ancelotti, during the first few months of his loan spell.

Ancelotti now wants to sign the striker, dubbed "the Little Pea, on a permanent deal according to the Express.

At just 26-years-old, Hernandez still has the footballing world at his feet and could go on to steal Karim Benzema's spot in the Real Madrid starting eleven.

Hernandez has scored three goals in four La Liga games and has transferred his club form into success for Mexico.

Speculation in Spain is that Real Madrid have the option to sign the striker as part of his loan deal but are unwilling to meet the agreed £17 million fee.

Madrid want Hernandez but only want to spend £12 million.

It remains to be seen if Manchester United are prepared to cut their losses on the pacey forward.
