Javier Hernandez has gone from spending the majority of his career in the sidelines of Manchester United and Real Madrid to turning into a breakout star in the German outfit Bayer Leverkusen.
The Mexican attacker signed a 3 year long contract with Bayer Leverkusen on August of 2015 for a transfer fee of £7.3 million and this deal was a questionable one as the supporters of Bayer Leverkusen weren’t exactly happy to see their club offloading £7.3 million in a player who was doing nothing more than spending time on the sidelines of big clubs but Javier Hernandez has silenced his doubters as he has consistently been scoring goals for Leverkusen and has earned numerous awards along the way.
Going from being a bench player to a consistent goal-scorer and becoming one of the star players in the team is an accomplishment many performers in the world of football would like to accomplish. Javier Hernandez’s transfer to Bayer Leverkusen has simply been the best decision that he has made to bring his career back to life and this is why he is receiving so much attention from the media.
Hernandez has a contract with Leverkusen which extends until 2018 and when the sporting director of Bayer Leverkusen was asked about the possibility of selling him in this January transfer window, Rudi Voller replied by saying that it’s just not going to happen simply because Hernandez is out of the market.
“Chicharito has played a big part in our success so far, through his style of play, through his goals. That’s why we brought him here. In the first half of the season, everything has worked out fine. It’s easy to reject offers when you are in a position in which you don’t need to sell. We are in such a position. We will keep the players we want to help us achieve our goals.” Bayer Leverkusen’s Rudi Voller said as he shut down any rumors and possible exits involving the Mexican attacker of the team.

Javier Hernandez has a loan deal with Real Madrid which lasts until the end of the season and the Mexican forward is expected to make his return to the Premier League side Manchester United but it might not happen as West Ham United is reportedly interested in signing Hernandez during the summer transfer window.
When Carlo Ancelotti decided to sign Javier Hernandez on September of 2014, the Italian manager only wanted to sign a forward who could serve as a backup option. The Mexican attacker was never expected to turn into a regular starter for Ancelotti as he already has a plethora of attacking options at his disposal which includes players such as: C.Ronaldo, James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale, KarimBenzema, Isco and Jese.
Hernandez is constantly being under heavy fire with continuous criticism due to his inability of landing a regular spot in Real Madrid but he was never expected to compete against some of the best players in the world.
This is a similar thing to what is occurring to him in Old Trafford as Hernandez struggles trying to turn into a consistent player and score goals regularly. With the likes of: Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and RadamelFalcao, it becomes difficult for a player such as Javier Hernandez to find his spot in the center stage of Manchester United. Read more »
KarimBenzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale, Luca Modric, James Rodriguez are all of the names of the players which are consistently in the starting lineup of Carlo Ancellotti. These either perform an attacking role in the squad of a role in the midfield department but in some way or another are affecting the chances of Javier Hernandez on getting into the main team.
On September 1 of 2014, when Hernandez penned his loan deal with Real Madrid, it was incredibly hard to believe that the Mexican player was going to secure a spot in the main team of the Spanish club which is already filled with superstar players from almost every position in the squad.
Even during his time performing in Old Trafford as a player of Manchester United, Javier Hernandez could never really make a real impact as he was nothing more than a substitute player with some minutes of playing time on a few games but the Mexican attacker was never really the center of attention of the team.

Javier Hernandez could never really manage on securing a regular start at Old Trafford as he made over 100 league appearances for Manchester United in 5 seasons which is a fairly good record but you have to take into consideration that most of the time when the Mexican performed in a match he entered the pitch as a substitute player who could only play for a few minutes in certain games.
The Mexican forward was not a very important or key figure for the Premier League club Manchester United as he was just a substitute and back up-option.
On September 1 of 2014, Hernandez signed a season long loan deal with Real Madrid and things haven’t changed much as Hernandez continues being a substitute player more than anything else. He is mostly being used as a back-up option for the Frenchman KarimBenzema.
Even though Hernandez is just a substitute figure in Real Madrid, the Mexican forward displayed his intention of wanting to play with Real Madrid for the next few years as he wants to transform his loan deal into a permanent contract.
Javier Hernandez revealed his desire to continue playing with Real Madrid for the next few years as the Mexican player told reporters: ‘’They thought I couldn’t help any more at United so we decided by mutual agreement that I would leave. 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 I was offered 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’’
It still remains unsure as if Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti is interested or even considering on signing Javier Hernandez on a permanent deal as the Spanish club is being linked with a few attacking players that could entirely replace Javier Hernandez.
Louis van Gaal has a huge series of tasks left to do as the Dutchman is going through his debut season in charge of Manchester United but things has been a complete disaster for the manager who was selected to replace David Moyes. Manchester United started their season with a surprising defeat against Swansea City and a few days later drawing with Sunderland.
However, the problems of Louis van Gaal are not only in the recent disappointing results they have picked up but also in the entirety of the team as there are a number of players which have an undefined future at Old Trafford.
Ever since joining Manchester United on April of 2010, Javier Hernandez could never really find a place in the starting lineup of any of the managers that have been in charge of the club. Neither Sir. Alex Ferguson, David Moyes or latest one Louis van Gaal could never really fully utilize the Mexican attacker on a consistent basis as he was mostly used as a substitute player who could barely get to play for a few minutes and nothing more than that.
A few of the fringe players at Old Trafford are expected to be released by Louis van Gaal before the transfer window ends as he wants to cut down the wage bill and they have received huge interest from Juventus and Valencia as they want to sign Hernandez.
Even if Hernandez does remain being a player of Manchester United, his time at the Premier League club seems to be reaching its last few years or maybe even months as Wayne Rooney and Van Persie are undoubtedly the main attacking stars of the club and Louis van Gaal has already told the Mexican forward that he has no future at all at Old Trafford.
