Cape Town - Javier Hernandez has said his final farewell to Manchester United but has sent one last message to the club's manager Louis van Gaal.

The Mexico international striker ended his time at Old Trafford on Monday after completing a £7.3 million move to Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen.

Hernandez spent last season on loan at Real Madrid and hadn't started a game for Manchester United for more than a year before agreeing a permanent move away from the English club.

In Chicharito's farewell message, the striker was full of praise for previous manager Sir Alex Ferguson, the club's staff, players and the fans.

Hernandez opted to go with the "cold shoulder" route for United's current manager Louis van Gaal. 

Hernandez's farewell message on Instagram:

"I want to thank Sir Alex Ferguson & Jim Lawlor, the club staff, all the players I played with; but specially I want to thank all the Manchester United fans in the UK and all around the world for the incredible support I've had this past 4 years and all the best wishes they have for me in my new chapter!! #MUFC#GGMU #2premierleagues #19&20#60goals #85starts #thankyou"
