Now we can all agree, as much as I hate to say it, Hernandez has been a raw talent for Manchester United this season. He has been great, racking 20 goals in his first season in all competitions. He was chosen over Berbatov in the Champions League final, even though, the Bulgarian was joint top scorer in the Premier League.
So who is this Marco Bueno everyone is talking about? He is this young Mexican forward who has been dubbed the new ‘Javier Henandez’…now wouldn’t THAT be great! But we aren’t expecting it in his first season here as he is still only 17-years-old, that’s if he passes the supposed 10 day trial we are offering to him. Now this rumour didn’t come from a unlikely source or one of his friends or family, it came from his Clubs (Pachuca) Vice president Andres Fassi who said:
“They [Liverpool] want to buy 100 per cent of his playing rights, where there would be a series of important royalties for the player, and he would be given a five-year contract, and there would be a revaluation of the development rights for Pachuca.”
Bueno’s agent also confirmed that Liverpool have a substantial interest in the player who set the under 17’s World Cup alight, with his runs, passes and well timed headed goal. If we were to get him he would also be in the ranks of other Under 17 world cup stars such as Raheem Sterling, Adam Morgan and Brad Smith among others.
Bueno himself stated he wanted to follow in the footsteps of a certain ‘Ex’ player of ours, Fernando Torres. Now all will be well and good if he comes under our ranks and becomes a player of Torres’ quality, but let’s hope he may stay a little longer, if not we might be able to sell him for £100 million, but that is getting a little a head of ourselves.
A little FactFile goes a little like this:

Fassi also states:
“We are conducting negotiations with Liverpool and possibly, on August 1, Marco Bueno will pay a visit to Liverpool. We have already practically closed negotiations with them. They want to buy 100% of the rights.”
