Striker Abel Hernandez Wants To Join Real Madrid or…Newcastle United!
Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez has told the Italian press that ‘I dream of Newcastle, Real (Madrid) or Atletico (Madrid) for the future’.
The Gazza Dello Sport reports that the 23 year Hernandez was thinking of moving in the summer, but decided to stay after Palermo’s relegation to Serie B, because he owed it to the fans and the club’s owner.
“I decided to say (in the summer) because I owed it to Maurizio Zamparini (Palermo’s owner) and the supporters.”
Hernandez joined from Uruguayan club Penarol as an eighteen year old for £3m and is highly rated but has suffered from a number of injuries.
Despite that he has scored a very respectable 17 goals in 42 Serie A starts for Palermo, plus another 12 this season in 17 starting line-ups in Serie B since their relegation.
For the national team he has scored a decent 7 goals, though 4 of them were in an 8-0 thrashing of the might Tahiti!
If Newcastle don’t commit then Real Madrid may have a chance….
