Real Madrid are ready to send Manchester United loanee Javier Hernandez Chicharito back to Old Trafford this summer after deciding against making his move permanent at the end of the campaign, reports in Spain claim.
The Mexico international moved to the Champions League winners on loan in the last days of the summer of 2014 after United manager Louis van Gaal decided to part ways with him and Danny Welbeck following the arrival of Radamel Falcao.
After failing to get regular time during the previous campaign at Old Trafford under current Real Sociedad manager David Moyes, Hernandez joined Carlo Ancelotti's side to fill the void left by the departure of Alvaro Morata to Juventus.
But with Karim Benzeman ahead of him in the manager's pecking order, the United loanee has failed to establish himself in the Santiago Bernabéu line-up.
The Mexico international was indeed completely exiled during the first part of the campaign and only enjoyed a chance to prove his worth later in the season when Benzema got injured.
And even though the 26-year-old conquered the hearts of the Real Madrid supporters with a crucial goal against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter final, Marca reports his impressive last part of the campaign will not be enough to secure a permanent move to the Santiago Bernabéu.
Hernandez has scored seven La Liga goals in just seven starting appearance but the Spanish newspaper assures that, after Real Madrid sacked manager Ancelotti on Monday (25 May), one of its next decision will be to part ways with the loanee.
Marca points out that Hernandez will re-join Old Trafford but it is still uncertain whether van Gaal will give him a fresh chance at Old Trafford, following's Falcao's exit, or if United will try to sell him on somewhere else to fund moves for a new number nine.
