Man Utd exit
Hernandez joined Manchester United from FC Guadalajara four years ago and has scored 59 goals in 154 appearances forming a partnership when he joined with Wayne Rooney.
Hernandez's statistics are quite commendable, considering the vast amount of those appearances were off the bench. Even though, it appears that he is not in manager Louis van Gaal's plans.
The Mexico international has grown increasingly frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford, and with Robin van Persie moving to Manchester just two seasons after Hernandez did, opportunities have definitely been hard to come by.
The 26-year-old has been linked with many clubs during the transfer window, with Valencia and Juventus to name a few, however nobody expected Real Madrid to be a possible destination.
It had previously been Danny Welbeck who was thought to be leaving the club, with Tottenham possible suitors, however with Hernandez now going you'd think that Welbeck will now be staying for cover to Van Persie and Rooney, unless a new striker is to be brought in.
Guillem Balague, Sky Sports' Spanish football expert had this to say on the Hernandez transfer news: "Manchester United and Real Madrid have agreed a one-year loan deal for Chicharito Hernandez to be a player of Real Madrid.
"Some may say that is surprising because they have lost a midfielder in Xabi Alonso, but they also lost [Alvaro] Morata and Ancelotti decided if they were going to get anybody it will be a Number 9.
"That's it, Real Madrid have got another striker."
It was thought that Los Blancos would be signing a striker after the loss of Morata, with Radamel Falcao reportedly on the radar, but the Colombian is off to Manchester United.
Madrid appear to have turned their attention to Hernandez to boost their attacking force, and even though once again opportunities will be hard to come by, playing with Ronaldo and Bale is imaginably just too hard to turn down.
