Real Madrid, as seemed to be inevitable, have decided not to take up the option to sign Javier Hernandez on a permanent basis after the Mexican striker spent a season at the Santiago Bernabeu on loan from Manchester United.

This is according to Spanish sports daily and Real Madrid mouthpiece Marca, who report that it has already been decided that Hernandez will return to Old Trafford following the expiration of his temporary deal.

Real Madrid only played their final game of the season on Saturday but the futures of both Hernandez and manager Carlo Ancelotti have seemingly been decided with confirmation of both departures set to be confirmed.

Incidentally, Marca also claim that Hernandez was a player that Ancelotti had not wanted, even though he had pleaded with the Real Madrid board to sign him another striker in last summer’s transfer window.

Ancelotti had wanted a classic No.9 to replace Alvaro Morata, but it was Hernandez who he ended up with. The 26-year-old made only seven league starts during his time with Madrid, which clearly demonstrates he was not part of Ancelotti’s plans.

It would also seem unlikely that Hernandez will have a future at Manchester United and he would be expected to depart Old Trafford on a permanent basis.

Madrid, meanwhile, might have been wise to stump up the cash for Hernandez in order to sweeten their relations with Manchester United ahead of an expected bid for goalkeeper David de Gea in the coming weeks.
