The striker has been deemed surplus to requirements at Manchester United and the Mexico head coach has backed him to shine at the Santiago Bernabeu
Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera has congratulated Javier Hernandez ahead of an expected loan move to Real Madrid.
The striker appears to be surplus to requirements at Manchester United following the arrival of Louis van Gaal as manager and is on the verge of a completing a temporary switch to the Champions League winners.
While that switch has yet to be confirmed, Mexico coach Miguel Herrera has taken to Twitter to wish ‘Chicharito’ well at Santiago Bernabeu.
A message from Herrera’s official account read: “Getting to Real Madrid is a great opportunity for @ CH14_ [Hernandez] , whom I wish the best of success!”
Hernandez joined United in 2010 from Guadalajara and has scored 59 goals for the club, despite frequently having to settle for cameo appearances from the bench.
The 26-year-old made only six starts in the Premier League last term.
