Will Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez Be Joining Real Madrid Soon?

4657889709 2a89db0fca Will Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez Be Joining Real Madrid Soon?

Six million Euros. That’s all it cost for Manchester United to sign a hardly-known Mexican striker from Chivas Guadalajara around a year ago. Nobody knew what to expect from Javier Hernandez, but as soon as he scored goals in the World Cup against France and Argentina, excitement started to build. However, not even Alex Ferguson and his scouting staff could have expected the immediate impact the Mexican sensation would have in the Premier League.

In his first year with United, Chicharito shocked the football world with his play as he became one of the EPL’s leading goal-scorers. In a year where Wayne Rooney was as unpredictable as ever and Berbatov cooled off in the second half of the season, Hernandez remarkably became the symbol of consistency that allowed United to successfully win their 19th title.

As a result of his play, it should come as no surprise that there would be outside interest in him. It’s also completely predictable that Real Madrid would be linked with the United striker after reports were made of Jose Mourinho being heavily interested in him to the point of dealing Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema for Hernandez. Just the thought of Madrid going after another United player makes United fans look back to the Ronaldo saga, who eventually left to join them. Speculation around Hernandez continued to grow after stories were made of his agent admitting that he would consider an offer from the Spanish giants.

Instead of fretting about his future, I’m confident in feeling that Hernandez won’t leave Manchester. Hernandez isn’t the same as Ronaldo in that he dreamed of playing for Los Blancos. The fact that Hernandez is of Latin-American descent from North America where the Spanish giants are worshiped in some parts also explains why the media would jump on the idea of him joining Real Madrid.

Call it a gut feeling, but Chicharito looks like he shows a great amount of loyalty which is growing less common nowadays with young footballers. According to The Sun, he stated, “From now on I’ll owe a great debt to Sir Alex for bringing me to Europe. I want to win many titles to give back to the team that opened the doors for me.”

Now, one would counter saying Ronaldo often played mind-games where he stated that he wouldn’t leave United only to eventually succumb to the temptation of playing for his childhood team. Hernandez doesn’t seem to be known for idolizing a certain team and looks as though he’s just appreciative of United in believing in him. In return, United have made what many call the signing of the century. Besides his marketing value, Hernandez has become an integral member of the Red Devils as his pace and finishing are simply world class for both club and country (an astounding 19 goals in 25 appearances for Mexico).

Will the rumors of Chicharito going to Real Madrid or other top clubs end once and for all? Of course not. Stories of teams interested in his services will continue to persist as they do with most of the top players in the world.

However, Alex Ferguson will do all he can to keep hold of his prized striker as he’s determined to have him lead United for years to come. Chicharito will probably only get even better over time as he looks like he could one day be the best striker in the world. The links with other giants of the game won’t stop as he continues to astound. No one can predict the future and in today’s transfer market, anything can happen. However, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is a Red Devil and in my mind, he’ll continue to be one for a long time to come.

    I think the stories of chicharito to real will not stop while he is playing well. The papers know they can print this and sell copies. However the fact is that Ferguson holds all the cards here. He is the greatest coach ever in sport and anticipates these things months before anyone else new anything was wrong. He will decide whether hernandez is ever sold. Unlike ronaldo, hernandez is not selfish egotistical man, and will not be upset if he is not sold. Personally from a football perspective, why would hernandez leave man u were he plays under the best coach, in the best league, in the best stadium in front the most passion crazed fans with some of the best players in a team that has a huge future and is getting better and better. In madrid its all politics and egos and fighting to get out of barcelonas shadow. Hernandez has no pressure in manchester were he isnt even expected to start, where as in madrid he will have huge pressure and unwanted attention which may halt his development. I can see him fancying madrid from a cultural perspective tho at some point in his career, but with ferguson holding the cards, i guarentee it wont be for at least 5 years and 100mil plus at least. I think hernandez and his family know that in madrid you come and you go, but in manchester, you are loved and remembered forever.

      Well said. Couldn’t agree with you more

      • john says:

        If he where to move to Real Madrid then he would play under the best coach but thankfully for us we dont need a player who is only good at being a goal poacher and good at nothing else. Benz and Higuain are excellent strikers and have the ability to actually beat players one on one with their technical skill that Hernandez lacks. Every non Mexican and non United fan know that Manchester United only bought the kid to sell shirts in Mexico. I mean they are making Berbatov ride the bench while he is 2 times the player Hernandez is.

        • john says:

          its actually sad to even watch the mexican gold cup games because the propaganda thrown at us saying that Hernandez is the best player on the team or how Mexico will win because of Hernandez is sickening. The best player on that team is a Barca product named Giovanni dos Santos. I am a full fledged Madridista but even I admit that the former cule is the best on the team. Sad to think that he plays for Racing now while Hernandez is at United.

          • cupcake says:

            ummm i dnt aqree wit u theree sorry but chicharito is the bestt he helpedd mexico win evry sinqle qame dey playy but its not jus him its most of the team and yes gio dos santos is gud but not bettr den chicharito <3 ;D ! dos santos , barrera , rafa marques and chicharito are the best ones in the mexico team im sryy i jus love dem that is my opinionn ;D !

        • fernando says:

          So the fact that he scored more goals than Benz and Higuian in his very first season means nothing to you? The fact that he is faster than both of these players in both full speed and acceleration? The fact that he has better abilities to unmark himself from defenders? The fact that he has better headers? The fact that he has a better minute to goal ratio than both of these players? He scored against France when Bezema didn’t even come close to scoring against Mexico. He scored a badass goal against Argentina, too. Nuff said. You’re just a jealous hater.

        • Sally says:

          Yeah you right berbi is 2 times the man hernadez is, in weight and size!!! think before you speak boy, berbi is good in the box but has no comparison to Hernadez who is 1 of the fastest players( fastest player in the 2010 World cup) and he has a lot of skill. dont be fooled they all have there role to play

        • HECTOR says:

          JOHN
          Lol
          john must be a American cus only stupid people come up with such a lame comments

          It takes skill to score and Chicharito has done it both feet with his head back of the head face and by his balls
          so tell me something do you watch soccer at all…. Cuz you are stupid

    Easy one this. NO

  3. chichariot says:

    i think we all agree that his talent is better suited in the EPL . this guy seems loyal to MANu and he better remain that way or else i dont think i will be such a follower anymore. even if he has my same surname haha

  4. Bello says:

    Real Madrid are dreaming

    • jorge says:

      no you are dreaming because real madrid dont need him real madrid is doing great without him

      • eminem2000 says:

        your dreaming because real is searching for a player to help them get out of the shadows of barcelona.Hernandez is better than all of real madrids forwards together

      • Fonz says:

        well, it’s a shame that guys like john have such a short view of football,
        football it’s not about nationalities or special abilities if they can’t proof that with facts!!
        El chicharo simply has proven him self, humble & dedicated something players of real madrid don’t know about bunch of juniors!

        one think i hate about Real madrid
        is that they inflate players careers like balloons ’till they explode
        the team itself is inflated arrogant crying babies football its about sweet & passion to the sport not money & elegant suits what other team crowd in the world goes to the stadium in a suit are they kidding?
        dead crowd spain is an embarrasement of football

        i fully support Manchester because they play for their team, they give all they got on the field, their football is practical & vertical they don’t pass the ball 500 times to score (barcelona)

        so please let’s cut the Bull Shit, let’s face the facts,
        credit where credit is due period.

    John STUF You Hater…

  6. hector says:

    John and sergi both make excellent points. Although I agree that gio is the best pall around player on the mexican team his style is different then chicharo’s. Chicharo’s ball skill are below average but u can’t deny that he is smart, fast, and knows how to maximize the skill he does have. His ability to beat defenders without the ball is what makes him good. At the end of the day if he’s scoring goals bc its just him infront of the net… stop n think wut he did to get there. If it was as easy as haters say it is then a lot more players would be scoring a lot more goals. Now his game is suited for the premier league not the spanish league. But don’t be quick to judge bc we can all agree ferguson n murinho are 2 of the best coaches in the 2 best leagues in the world. And 1 can’t find a way to sign him and the other says he won’t part with him. So if u hold them in such high regards then u should respect their soccer knowledge. Bc they’re the ones on the field while we r on the internet commenting this article.

    • Zebda says:

      Hernandez is a more valuable player than Gio hence a better player than Gio. I would even say that Guardado is better than Gio. Gio might have ball skills but he seems to lack something that diminishes his influence against world class opposition. Hence why he couldnt cut it at Spurs.

  7. Zebda says:

    John thats pathetic you clearly dont know much about the game. Hernandez is a gem that any coach would love to have as a forward. His lack of one v one ability is replaced by his superior sense of positioning and quick adjustments. Its not a coincidence that he seems to know where the ball will drop or pop out and his finishing is dynamite. If you would rather have benzema then props to you, but I would bet just about every coach would rather have hernandez because he is just so rare of a forward. Him, inzaghi, michael owen in his prime days, totti, in prime as well, are a brands of pochers that are invaluable and need only one chance to win a game.

  8. hector says:

    One more quick comment as far as mexicans hating on hernandez. Sou
    th americans especially argentina hate and despise us bc they say we aren’t at their level. North and central americans hate us bc their goals r constantly to beat mexico and the usa to get out of their shadow. Why are we helping by hating one of our own. Be proud he’s drawing so much attention and that a team like man u not only gave him a shot. But also gave him the time on field to prove himself. And as die hard as those fans are they’ve welcomed this foreigner with open arms and he’ll make him a fan favorite. But yet some mexicans are hating one of their own. Thanx man u for giving him a shot. I for one am very proud.

  9. Angel says:

    Real Madrid?! Yea they r the push overs in Spain but Barcelona is the real Giant.

  10. candy alexa says:

    yo amo al chicharito en donde este o en donde caya yo lo sigo

  11. William says:

    Loyalty! I, as a Mexi-CAN, will tell you that we value loyalty and honesty very much. Chicharito understands that Sir Alex opened the doors for him to reach the heights he has this last year and Mexicans understand that you never bite the hand that feeds you! Chicharito will never leave Man-U unless its not up to him. Sacrifice leads to success chicharito and remember that if the team does good, then you’re doing good!!!!!

  12. Sally says:

    You people are putting down a youngster. You haven;t even given him time to shine!!! Remember United create superstars and this boy will be 1 he is already on his way. And speaking of Madrid, oh please they only want our creations!!!! And Madrid do need help because it seems every season they dont know who to start and who to bench. Hernandez is a great player and he loves playing with Ronney you can see it. I dont think he will leave United anytime soon, if at all. He is a Manchester United Striker and i am proud to say that i support him!!!

  14. Sally says:

    Chicharito is a MEXCICAN not a SPANIARD!!!! got that in your heads. He owes no loyalty to Spain!!!!!!!

  15. MUFCforlife says:

    As the the author of the article, I feel Chicharito will stick with United for a long time to come because he does have loyalty. I think he could leave one day because trying to hold onto a player for his entire career isn’t easy, but Hernandez is one to stay for a while.

    Comparing Giovanni Dos Santos to Chicharito is just dumb because they are different players with different skills. In terms of who’s better at being more consistently productive, I think the answer is obvious…Chicharito.

  16. REDSMANC says:

    JOHN ARE U SURE U’RE MADRIDISTA NOT LIVERFOOL FAN?

  17. Edgar says:

    Whoever is comparing Gio to Chicharito is dumb. They both have very different styles. The better overall player is Gio but you have to take into consideration who scores the goals and that chicharito. As far as him going to Madrid I don’t see it happening. If you watch all of his interviews he is always thankful for his opportunity to play for Manchester. He is no Ronaldo who would betray his team. He is a loyal player who won’t part Manchester of it’s his choice.

  18. I feel Chicharito will stick with United for a long time to come because he does have loyalty. I think he could leave one day because trying to hold onto a player for his entire career isn’t easy, Remember United create superstars and this boy will be 1 he is already on his way.So the fact that he scored more goals than Benz and Higuian in his very first season means nothing to you?but after all he is a outclass player he miigth become a lagend for manchester united.

  19. Jose says:

    The difference between Gio and Chicharito?

    It’s obvious, I think. dos Santos CONSTANTLY attempts to do it all himself in crucial plays. His biggest and most consistent sin playing for the Mexico team is that he simply will not pass the ball as long as he thinks that Mexico will win the match. He does that because he’s constantly just trying for the solo goal. But watch how his play changes when he knows that Mexico HAS to win, and all of a sudden you get a Gio that is pure genius: he starts playing with his team!

    If you want to compare him with Chicharito, the you will notice right away that Chicharito plays purely for the team, that’s it. There is no selfishness to his work on the field, time and again he is always working hard for the team, and not for himself. That’s why he scores, that’s why Barrera and Guardado score, that’s why Mexico is so deadly right now: teamwork.

    Teamwork is the one thing that Gio chooses to ignore for the most part, which is why Tottenham don’t want him, and why Barca didn’t want him, and why he’s struggling in Europe in general. But as soon as he grows out of the typical Mexican “I’m the best primadonna out here” syndrome, he is going to be ranked up with Messi, I know it…. just like Chicharito is going to be Hugo Sanchez’ replacement.

  20. Cesar ms says:

    Chicharito is not a player that works for the money but for what he truly likes which is playing the best sport in the world.Thats why he will reach the top.In other hand Cristiano is playing for money and glory

  21. Fonz says:

    is funny that many people keeps saying that El Chicharo lacks technique & doesn’t have the ability of Messi or Ronaldo that’s simply true why?

    ’cause chicharo is a true #9 which in his position he’s to finish up a move or be the end part of it, a striker for the ones don’t know this game

    Messi is a #10 the brain the one that moves the ball, the genius along with Xavi another #10 that plays with #8 shirt

    Higuain is suppostly a #9 but he’s a stone on the road compare to chicharo in speed eventhough he’s argentinian which i admit is better football than Mexico being realistic

  22. farhaan says:

    hernandez will joins united………..

  23. Cesar says:

    I know a lot of people think Chicharito is not as good as other players, but…. I know at least three people that agree with my opinion: Guardiola (barca), Mourino (RM) and of course, Sir Alex Ferguson. Chicharito has the skill to score and get over anything on the way to do it…. and for you haters…. He’s has earned a spot on the best team on the best team on the planet, he’s loved by millions of mexicans and red devils fans, he is a releaf to his teamates and a threat to their enemies….. And don’t forget he has also earned the respect of players such as Messi, so to be fair with you haters….. F*** Yall. Thanks

  24. Freddy says:

    Thats why real madrids head coach joseph m is begging sir ferguson to let chicharito go huh? he’s to much of a Good player to go to real Madrid. All Madrid cares about is money and fame. The red devils actually care to win cups and the players and fans are loyal to the jersey unlike the real Madrid. They only have fans when they have a good season.

  25. Edson says:

    I dont thing benz n iguahin r players for madrid. When they play vs
    barza they do nothing. Cristiano do everything but he neds help n i
    thing chicharito can help hem!!!!!

  26. alex says:

    CHICHARITO is all class, oh and a pretty good soccer player also.
    Players like this don’t come often, so I doubt ManU will let him
    go. I hate Real Madrid, but he’s the one player that would actually
    allow me to root for them. Before he was with ManU, I actually
    didn’t like them either, but now I watch their games.

  27. Jesse Marin says:

    Cupcake is right chicharito should stay In Mexico.

    Real Madrid sucks u too cristiano Ronaldo.

    Cristiano tried to beat a Bugatti and the Bugatti won.

    CRISTIANO RONALDO U SUCK!!!!!!!!

  28. jesus cilia says:

    real madrid will get chicarito. its not a got damm rummor. mourinho said it after the manchester city game in UEFA. The Real Madrid President and Mourinho Are thinking of trading benzema or higuain for him, Soo It Wont Matter if he actually goes. Madrid Is Madrid And Javier its just another player
