Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez’s move to Real Madrid looks like being a done deal after a message of support from his Mexican national team manager Miguel Herrera on Twitter.
The 26-year-old has been linked with a move away from United for much of the summer so far, and now looks highly likely to be completing a loan move to Madrid on deadline day.
Llegar al Real Madrid es una gran oportunidad para @CH14_ , a quién le deseo el mejor de los ¡éxitos!

The Spanish giants had been chasing a new signing upfront as they eye cover for Karim Benzema, and Hernandez now looks to be their preferred option over another rumoured target, Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo.
Hernandez has had a mixed time during his four years at Old Trafford, starting his United career in fine form with 20 goals in his first season to help fire the club to the Premier League title, though his form has somewhat dipped since then.
Still, the Mexican international remains a highly regarded talent due to his impressive goalscoring record from limited appearances, and he is rated as one of the most lethal penalty box poachers in Europe.
Hernandez becomes the latest high-profile player to move between the two clubs in recent times, following the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Ruud van Nistelrooy in moving to the Bernabeu, while Angel Di Maria moved in the opposite direction earlier this month.
