Javier Hernandez has joined Real Madrid on a season-long loan. The European champions have reserved a first buying option on the striker at the end of the loan. Chicharito will wear the no.14 shirt.
"I’m delighted and completely grateful to the whole institution of Real Madrid for having made the effort and I’ll give it my all. There is no player in the world who can say they wouldn’t like to wear this shirt or be at this club. It would be a big lie. For me it is a dream come true. I’m really happy to be here and I’m going to try and have fun, to help the team and win titles."
"I am believing it, as they say in Mexico. You know what it means to represent this club and I am here to contribute and hopefully things will go well for me. The most important thing is the present. I’m trying to live this dream and, starting tomorrow, working and giving my best."
"I’ve come here to belong to Real Madrid and I’m delighted to be at this club. I always try to lead my life with a lot of objectives and goals and I’m here to give everything, both on and off the pitch, and to help this team to be as or more successful than it is. None of the big teams, and this is the biggest, can win with just one player, they need everyone to achieve as a group."
"I’m a Real Madrid player. I accepted as soon as I knew there was interest in me and I hope to do as well as possible. I’m lucky and I have come here to enjoy it and help the team, which is the most important thing. The thing I love most is playing football and playing here is a blessing."
"It is a dream. Being able to represent this club is a dream come true. Every player knows what Real Madrid represents and it is an honour to be here."
