Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez completed a season-long loan switch to Real Madrid last night and was clearly delighted to complete a "dream" move to the Bernabeu, vowing to take his chance to shine at the Champions League holders despite fierce competition for places.

Hernandez was drafted in by Los Blancos on deadline day to provide Karim Benzema with a reminder that he must maintain top form to lead the line in La Liga, providing the 26-year-old with a fresh challenge he desperately needed after his career stagnated at United over the last 18 months.

Radamel Falcao's arrival left the Mexican marksman with no choice but to act upon Madrid's interest and switch to the Spanish capital for the next 10 months, but Hernandez is very much looking forward and has his eyes set on making an instant impact with Real Madrid.

Hernandez determined to take Madrid lifeline

"It means a lot for me, its a dream come true really. These kind of things when you are a child and play football in the street or in teams with your friends, you only dream to be part of this kind of club, the best in the world.

"To join a club that has 10 European Cups, its unbelievable. I just want to enjoy it a lot, try to give my best to the team and to help them keep these traditions of winning trophies every year.

"I'm a very dedicated and professional player, I give everything inside and outside of the pitch. I'm a player that loves to be in constant movement, to give a lot of choices to my team-mates when they have the ball.

"Here it doesn't matter who is gonna score, the most important thing is that when the final whistle goes Real Madrid won. 

"For me its motivating to be compared to him. I've been living a lot with the comparisons to him (Hugo Sanchez) since I was a kid. I just want to enjoy this opportunity and to take it as well."

Can Madrid reinvigorate Chicharito?

The 26-year-old certainly gave an engaging, considered interview, but he'll need more than good intentions to make an impact in a star-studded Real Madrid squad.

Hernandez failed to register double figures for the first time in his Manchester United career last season and clearly failed to impress new Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal.

At his best though the clinical finisher is an asset to any squad in Europe, so Madrid will hope that the once-ruthless forward is back to something approaching top form in time to help their push to regain La Liga over the next nine months.
