Spanish giants Real Madrid are said to have rejected the chance to turn Javier Hernandez’s loan move from Manchester United into a permanent deal and have since sent him back to England, according to Marca.
The Mexican international joined Real on the final day of the summer transfer market, as coach Carlo Ancelotti had told the club that he needed another striker to bolster their forward line.
He jumped at the chance in the hope of reviving his career, which had stalled at United under previous boss David Moyes.
However, Chicharito was not the man that Ancelotti had been after, highlighting the need for another big presence that had been left by Alvaro Morata just weeks before Hernandez arrived.
Hernandez managed to get 33 games under his belt in Madrid, though only 12 came from the start, contributing only nine goals across all competitions.
It’s not clear as to whether he will be used by Manchester United, who will be looking for reinforcements of their own after sending Radamel Falcao back to Monaco.
