Real Madrid are rethinking sending Javier Hernandez back toManchester United at the end of the season.
The Mail on Sunday says the late winner Hernandez scored to beat city rivalsAtletico Madrid in their Champions League quarter-final has lifted the striker to legendary status.
The Bernabeu fans saluted Hernandez with astonishing continual chanting of the player’s nickname ‘Chicharito’ until he eventually left the pitch. Not even Cristiano Ronaldo has enjoyed such adulation.
The Real hierarchy may find it unacceptable to let Hernandez go now. And if the player becomes more regular there is the added commercial factor of his shirt sales in his native Mexico.
