Cape Town - Javier Hernandez has labelled his move to Champions League holders Real Madrid "a dream".

espnfc.co.uk report that Javier Hernandez is working hard to prove that he belongs at Real Madrid following his dream move to the club.

Hernandez arrived on a season-long loan deal and has shed light on the decision to leave Manchester United last summer.

"They thought I couldn't help any more at United so we decided by mutual agreement that I would leave," said Hernandez.

"It was difficult, although I had offers from other teams, but when I got the opportunity to come to Real Madrid I didn't hesitate.

"It was the toughest challenge [I was offered] and the one that gave me the least chances [of first-team football], but these are the challenges I like and the ones I've worked for all my life.

"I dreamed of being here.

"I have the talent and I'll work hard to show I belong at such a great institution. I hope some positive things happen, both to the club and myself."

"I was received well here and I had played against some of my teammates either at the club or national level," Hernandez said.

"Here is doesn't matter where you come from. At the end of the day you are welcomed in the dressing room. From day one I have tried, without any disrespect to anyone else, to say to myself, 'why not? I can play here, I can contribute and work with this team.'"

Hernandez' deal at Manchester United only expires in June 2016.
