Manchester United striker Gives Hints About His Future


On-loan Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has revealed that he is happy at Real Madrid despite the lack of game time. The Mexican international was signed by Carlo Ancelotti to cover the loss of departing Alvaro Morata who left for Juventus in July.

Hernandez has made a total of 9 appearances for the Real Madrid out of which 4 have come in the league. He has a meagre 144 minutes under his belt and has completed just one game which came in the Copa Del Rey. To his credit, the 26-year old hasn’t complained about the lack of game time and said, “I was aware of the quality of the players here and they have received me really well. Some of them I knew because I’d already played against them at national team and club level.

“Here it does not matter where you’ve come from because everyone makes you feel welcome. From the first day I arrived I was treated very well.

“Why can’t I play here? I have the talent and I’ll work hard to show I belong at such a great institution.

“I hope some positive things happen, both to the club and myself,” he added.

Hernandez wasn’t a regular at Manchester United either as Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney were always preferred to him. The addition of Radamel Falcao meant that he had to move elsewhere, and when Real Madrid came knocking, he couldn’t reject them, “I dreamed of being here. How am I going to say no to the best club in the world?

“It was difficult, although I had offers from other teams, but when I got the opportunity to come to Real Madrid I didn’t hesitate.

“It was the toughest challenge and the one that gave me the least chances [of first team football], but these are the challenges I like and the ones I’ve worked for all my life.”

Hernandez’s comments in a way means that he wants to remain at the Bernabeu beyond the 1-year loan spell. He has impressed (3 goals so far) whenever Ancelotti has put him into action, which could merit a permanent move come July, especially with reports emerging that United have signed Falcao permanently.
