Real Madrid director Santiago Aguado has confirmed that the Spanish giants would be keen on bringing Javier Hernandez back to the club after being impressed during his spell in Germany.
Hernandez spent the 2014/15 season on loan at the Bernabeu after Louis van Gaal deemed him not good enough for his starting XI at Manchester United.
During his time at the Spanish club, the Mexican striker made 23 appearances in La Liga but scored just seven goals as Van Gaal’s decision looked justified.
However, since his permanent transfer to Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2015, Hernandez has been on fire and scored 33 goals in 50 appearances in all competitions and a return to Real Madrid could potentially be on the cards.
He told Fox Sports: “Yes, I’d like to see Chicharito back at Real Madrid as we feel that he is an excellent player.”
This season alone, the 28-year-old striker has scored five goals in six Bundesliga appearances and finished his debut campaign with 17 goals in the German top flight.
He’s come a long way since he was purely used as a super sub at Manchester United, and now he could soon be starting for one of Europe’s best.
