Javier Hernandez wants permanent Real Madrid move

Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez wants a permanent move to Real Madrid.

The Mexico international, who is currently on a season-long loan at the Bernabeu, has little intention of returning to Old Trafford this summer but admits he doesn’t know what the future holds.

Hernandez has endured another frustrating season, but was handed a rare chance to shine by Carlo Ancelotti against Atletico Madrid in mid-week following a string of untimely injuries to several of his teammates. The live-wire striker took the opportunity with both hands, scoring the late winning goal to send Los Blancos through to the semi-finals at their local rivals’ expense.

Hernandez has since told reporters that he would like to continue playing for Real Madrid beyond this summer, and hopes his loan deal from Manchester United can be turned into a permanent transfer.

"One of my goals is to continue working with Madrid,” he told RNE, according to talkSPORT. “You have to live in the present. I do not know what can happen from here until a month from now.”

Neither Real Madrid nor Man United want him

Unfortunately for Hernandez, there appears to be very little chance of Real Madrid opting to keep him at the Bernabeu, despite his mid-week heroics.

Manchester United, meanwhile, also have very little interest in retaining the services of Chicharito, who is wanted by “several big English clubs”, according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

Hernandez has started just two La Liga matches for Real Madrid this season because Karim Benzema is, quite simply, a more complete striker who offers a lot more.

But Hernandez, as he has proven over the years with Manchester United, can be a valuable asset - particularly from the subs’ bench.

Hernandez should join a smaller club

It might be in his best interests, though, to join a club where he is guaranteed regular first-team football. Quite why he wants to stay at Real Madrid, where his chances will remain limited heading into next season, is puzzling.

Of course, any club after Real Madrid will feel like a step down and Hernandez appears content training and playing alongside some of the world’s best players at the Bernabeu.

But he should attempt to resurrect his career elsewhere, at a club he can become an important member of a decent squad, instead of a small fish in a very big pond.
