Can Javier Hernandez resurrect his career at Bayern Leverkusen?

Frozen out: Javier Hernandez hardly featured under Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal

Manchester United surprisingly parted company with striker Javier Hernandez on deadline day, with the Mexican international joining German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen on a three-year deal. Supporters were shocked at the move, but the 27-year-old revealed his desire for greener pastures with a side in the Champions League.

He said: “Bayer made me feel important and loved and coming here was not a difficult decision to make. They made me feel wanted. I want to help and achieve important things. I hope to accomplish things in my head and in my heart.”

Last season, Hernandez spent the campaign on loan at Real Madrid, and delivered an impressive return of 11 goals scored and created in 859 minutes of La Liga football. The South American striker struggled in 2013/14 under former manager David Moyes, and has been deemed surplus to requirements by successor Louis van Gaal. The Red Devils now only have two natural strikers in the first-team squad (Wayne Rooney & Anthony Martial), and letting such a good servant leave the club for just £7M seems a poor decision given the lack of options in attack.

Hernandez scored 59 goals in 156 appearances for Manchester United since his 2010 move from Chivas, and shown himself to be one of the Premier League’s most potent strikers. He boasts one of the best goals-per-minute records in the division, and has built up a reputation as being one of the best super-subs in the country. Leverkusen may well have signed themselves a bargain this summer given the Mexican’s impressive goal record at United, and his comments on feeling wanted could see him playing with a smile.

Chances came few and far between with the Red Devils under Louis van Gaal, and Hernandez was hardly ever given enough minutes to find his form. He could forget himself as a regular starter in the future for the German club if he can hit the ground running, and his past tallies suggest he will succeed.

His exit from Old Trafford comes months after a spell at Real Madrid that saw him score important goals in important games. His international record is outstanding too, even during his stale periods at United, proving that Hernandez is an out and out goalscorer.

It’s an important move for the South American, as his contract will be finished when he turns 30. However, he’s sure to give it his all in Germany to turn his fledgling career around. Will Hernandez succeed?

Could Javier Hernandez join Real Madrid permanently in the summer?

Real Madrid striker Javier Hernandez – on season-long loan from Manchester United – made a rare start for the La Liga giants against Eibar on Saturday evening, and capped the appearance with a long-awaited goal for good measure in a 3-0 win. The Mexican international, who is nicknamed Chicharito – scored with a header, and manager Carlo Ancelotti lauded his display after the final whistle, while hinting the Spanish club could sign him on a permanent deal in the summer.

“(Chicharito) did very well and worked hard. He scored a goal and could have had another. And as for the future, he is owned by Manchester United. We will see at the end of the season,” he said.

Let alone the rare start in attack, Ancelotti’s words will come as a surprise to many given how little Hernandez has featured in 2015, but clearly he’s made some impression in the playing time afforded to him this season.

Javier Hernandez was deemed surplus to requirements at Manchester United upon Louis van Gaal’s arrival as manager, and was surprisingly approached by Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. The Spanish giants signed him on a season-long loan to provide cover for first-choice striker Karim Benzema.

However, as games started to grow in importance, the amount of minutes Hernandez received became less and less, which led to the Mexican publicly expressing his frustration, saying: “My situation is frustrating. I participate, give my all in training, but as far as for playing in matches, the opportunities are minimal. I belong to a team, but am not part of the important bit, the actual games. Sometimes my confidence is right down on the ground.”

The comments appear to have had the desired effect, as Hernandez was given his first start in six months for Real, and only his second in La Liga. He has scored four goals in 349 minutes of action, and has been coming off the bench more regularly in recent weeks, but has averaged just 11 minutes of game time in his last five appearances prior to the start against Eibar.

Boasting excessive pace sees him perfect for counter-attacking situations, and having such sharp finishing should mean he can bag some goals at a side who create multiple opportunities per game. His future with United is up in the air, yet it is also a blurry one with Real. However, should Real make their intentions clear this summer, they most likely could get the Mexican star.
