After Manchester United’s defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League Quarter Final on Wednesday night, they have made the first move of all the Premiership clubs, making the 1st signing ahead of the 2010/11 season. Step forward Mexico’s young striker, Javier Hernandez.
The 21 year old has signed from well known Mexico side Chivas Guadalahara for an undisclosed fee (reportedly worth up to £10million) and will join the club June 1st 2010. Admittedly I didn’t really know too much about the young striker, but after speaking to a few of my confidants, and conducting my own research, I’m quite impressed with the ability of the striker. Although United don’t have a great history with young strikers, think Manucho, Danny Wellbeck, David Bellion and so on, however the Mexican nicknamed “Chicharito” could be different. He posses very good raw finishing ability, acceleration and movement (similar to that of Arsenal’s Carlos Vela).
However he is definitely one for the future, but in the mean time, here’s all you need to know:
