Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid
Signed by Manchester United in 2010, Chicharito failed to nail down a position at Old Trafford, despite an excellent goalscoring record – netting 37 times in 53 appearances over three seasons.
This summer, however, the Mexico international made the loan switch to Real Madrid, and like his time in Manchester, he has done little other than sit on the substitute bench at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Blues veteran goalkeeper has seen his no.1 spot taken by youngster Thibaut Courtois this term, yet when called upon by boss Jose Mourinho, his form has shown no signs of dipping.
Cech is set leave Stamford Bridge in the summer, and Arsenal, according to Yahoo! Sport have already opened talks over a move.
