Mexican striker Javier Chicharito Hernandez has been linked with a transfer to the Major League Soccer for some time now, and it looks like this move might not be a long shot after all. Speaking with LA Times, Chicharito admitted that he is “definitely” considering a move to MLS in the future.

“Yes, definitely,” Hernandez admitted when asked whether MLS is an option for him. “Look, I am always thinking about my future. I want to be as open as I can to any opportunity.

Hernandez also thinks that MLS is growing in reputation and that the move to the U.S. provides an opportunity for him. “MLS is a league that is improving. It is an opportunity. Every league is an opportunity,” the 31-year-old added.

Reportedly, Chicharito Hernandez was a target for several MLS teams in the past, but the player didn’t want to move away from Europe. His mind might change in the future as his career nears to an end, but any team that wants to bring him would reportedly have to offer him a lucrative contract.

Hernandez played for a number of reputable European clubs, including Manchester United and Real Madrid. In September, he decided to join La Liga side Sevilla on a three-year deal. In 10 games he played for his new club this season, Chicharito scored three goals.
