Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is joining Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen. The 27-year-old out of favour striker will be sold for a transfer fee somewhere around £12 million. 

The Mexican international was sent off on loan to Real Madrid last summer on the transfer deadline as Dutch manager Louis van Gaal never preferred to play the crafty forward.

Hernandez did a commendable job last season as a Real Madrid player and made use of whatever little chance he got under Carlo Ancelotti. He remained at the bench for most of the season but was introduced in a key match last season against Atletico Madrid in UEFA Champions League quarter-final. Chicharito scored the all-important goal which guided Real Madrid to the semi-finals of the tournament.

Manchester United’s decision to go for the striker came as a surprise to many as the club does not possess many players in that position. The Red Devils sold Robin van Persie this season to Fenerbahce and released on loan forward Radamel Falcao who joined Chelsea. United currently have Wayne Rooney and James Wilson in the striking position.

United have had a decent start to the season as they are in the fifth position so far. They won their first two matches unconvincingly, drew their third game against Newcastle United and lost last night to Swansea City. The club has so far scored just three goals in first four matches.

Manchester United have been linked with several big names in world football but as it seems none of the players would join the club this season. The club is already in the crisis of sorts at the moment and now as Javier Hernandez is leaving it will be interesting to see how Louis van Gaal handles his strike department over next 48-hours.
