For a fee of £7.3 million, Bayer Leverkusen was able to sign Javier Hernandez as the Mexican attacker made a move from Manchester United to the German club and so far things have been going incredible well for the 28 year old forward who has consistently been struggling sitting on the sidelines of big teams.
Manchester United and Real Madrid were the 2 European clubs where Javier Hernandez performed in before eventually making a move to Bayer Leverkusen and in both of his former clubs; he struggled trying to land a spot in the first team as Hernandez had to settle with a place on the bench for the majority of the time.
During Javier Hernandez first debut as a player of Bayer Leverkusen, he managed to score 17 goals as he finished the season of 2015-16 as the top goal-scorer of the German club which is impressive for the debut season of any player in a new club.
When the Mexican forward was asked about the possibility of leaving Bayern Leverkusen and joining another club during the summer transfer window, Hernandez replied by saying:
“In the last two summers I was transferred on the last day, so you never know. I expected to stay in Madrid and in Manchester, but then I ended up here in Leverkusen. I’m happy to be part of this fantastic team. We’re hungry and want to achieve a lot. I don’t know if the rumors surrounding me are true or not. However, it motivates me that others want my services’’
After scoring 17 goals in his debut season as a player of Bayer Leverkusen, Hernandez has attracted the attention of other clubs but considering just how impressively he has been doing with the German outfit, it seems fairly unlikely that he will be joining another club anytime soon unless Bayer Leverkusen receive a very tempting offer.
