Real Madrid attacker set to make Manchester United return

Manchester United ace Javier Hernandez is set to return to Old Trafford after Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno hinted he doesn’t expect the striker to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu, Express reports.

The Mexican joined the Red Devils back in the summer of 2010 and became an instant hit, winning the league in his first season scoring 13 goals mostly from the bench.

However after his first year Hernandez found it difficult to maintain a first team place, especially after the purchase of Robin van Persie from Arsenal at the end of the 2011-2012 campaign.

The 26-year-old took the chance this past summer to join Real Madrid on a season-long loan deal, but has only played 170 minutes of La Liga football since making the move.

‘Chicarito’ has found it difficult competing with the attacking trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and Karim Benzema, which is set to make Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti snub the possibility of a permanent move for Hernandez.

And when Real Madrid chief Emilio Butragueno was prompted whether Hernandez will be signed, he replied: “It is Carlo’s decision, Javier trains well and is a great professional, but without any doubt the competition for places is very tough.”
