Manchester United loanee Javier Hernandez 'Chicharito' has claimed he is yet to know whether he will return to Old Trafford this summer or stay at Real Madrid after scoring a brace to lead Los Blancos to a 4-2 victory over Celta de Vigo on Sunday night (26 April).
Spanish newspaper AS reported last week that in summer 2014, the Champions League winners paid €2.5m (£1.8m, $2.7m) to United for the year loan and needed to invest an extra €10m should they want to secure the Mexican international's services on a permanent basis at the end of the campaign.
Earlier this year the United loanee suggested he was not interested in staying at the Santiago Bernabeu after being overlooked by Carlo Ancelotti during the first part of the campaign.
But the situation may have changed after the striker took advantage of Karim Benzema's recent injury to become a new Real Madrid hero.
After Chicharito scored the winner against Atletico Madrid to lead Real Madrid to the Champions League semi final last week, he netted a brace against Celta de Vigo to keep Real Madrid's chance of winning La Liga title alive, being two points behind Barcelona with five games remaining.
When asked after the game whether his recent form could see him staying at the La Liga giants next season, Hernandez replied: "More than anything else the goals have served to give me confidence.
"I love playing football. It's what makes me feel good. Only God knows where I will be this time next year, for moment, my only plan is to continue enjoying this moment and helping the best team in the world.
"As I have said before, I've been through a tough time and now it's my turn to enjoy the moment. There's nothing better than being out there on the pitch, I want to enjoy it and give my best for the team. What I have learned is that succeeding is down to me and I have to continue working hard. There will always be bad days and good days but if you give your all then you'll increase your chances of things turning out."
And when questioned on whether he expects to be dropped once Benzema returns from injury, he said: "Those decisions are for the coach, not me; right now I am just enjoying myself.
"I'm getting opportunities now and I have to make the most of them."
Meanwhile, responding to the same question, Ancelotti said: "If Chicharito is like he is, then he's untouchable just like Cristiano Ronaldo, like Benzema, James, Bale, Ramos, Isco, Varane, Pepe ...
"I have an amazing team, but only 11 can play; the rest have to sit the game out on the bench."
