Javier Hernandez has revealed that he’s keen to earn himself a permanent move to Real Madrid when his loan spell at the Bernabeu ends.
The Mexican striker left Manchester United on loan after being deemed surplus to requirements by Louis van Gaal, and has since been playing a back-up role in the Spanish capital.
Despite his first-team chances having been limited, the 26-year-old has netted three La Liga goals for his new side, and is considered to be the second best striker in their squad, behind Karim Benzema.
Even though he’s in line to return to Old Trafford at the end of the campaign, ‘Chicharito’ says that his focus is on earning a full transfer to Madrid:
“They thought I couldn’t help any more at United so we decided by mutual agreement that I would leave,” he is quoted by The Express.
“It was difficult, although I had offers from other teams, but when I got the opportunity to come to Real Madrid I didn’t hesitate.
“It was the toughest challenge and the one that gave me the least chances [of first team football], but these are the challenges I like and the ones I’ve worked for all my life.
“I dreamed of being here. I have the talent and I’ll work hard to show I belong at such a great institution.
“I hope some positive things happen, both to the club and myself.”
