Manchester United will not need much financial convincing to allow Javier Hernandez to leave the club, claims Guillem Balague.
The Spanish football pundit told SkySports that a transfer fee of just €10 million would do the trick, but is unsure if Real Madrid will pay up despite the forward's recent resurgence.
Hernandez has scored three goals in the last week for Real, including a late winner in the Champions League over Atletico Madrid, and is currently on a season long loan from Manchester United.
Balague said: "The price, 10million euros, doesn't seem a lot of money, but do they back Jese and his progression or keep Hernandez, who would be an obstacle for his progression? It's a decision Real Madrid will have to make, and it may depend on what Jese wants to do."
The pundit is referring to Jese Rodriguez, who has missed nearly the entire season with a serious knee injury, only to recently return.
Real do lack quality back-up to Karim Benzema up front, and Hernandez's price tag may make him too good a player to refuse despite the plans regarding their homegrown star.
Another factor to consider is what Chicharito wants to do. He has spent much of the past two seasons at Manchester United on the bench, and this year at Real Madrid has been no different.
He may find Real difficult to turn down, but he will be under no illusions as to the challenge for a first team place, and could look for guaranteed first team football elsewhere.
