‘Little Pea’ completes permanent move away from Old Trafford
Manchester United Football Club have announced that Javier Hernandez has left the club in order to join Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.
The Mexican international fell down the pecking order at Old Trafford after Sir Alex Ferguson left the club, and after spending the season on the bench under David Moyes, he was sent out on loan by Louis van Gaal as he joined La Liga giants Real Madrid on loan.
After failing to impress at the Bernabeu, Hernandez returned to United ahead of this season and it seemed like Van Gaal was ready to give Chicharito another chance to impress at the club.
However, today it was announced that The Red Devils would be signing Anthony Martial from AS Monaco for £36million, and that all-but ended Hernandez’s career in Manchester.
After agreeing to join Leverkusen, the Mexican has ended his five-year association with Manchester United, ending his time there with 59 goals in 157 games.
United posted a farewell picture on their official Facebook account with a brief message that read: “Chicharito has completed a permanent move to German club Bayer Leverkusen.
“He joined United in 2010 and scored 59 goals in 157 games, winning two Premier League titles. Everyone at Old Trafford wishes him well for the future.”
