‘Chicharito’ to leave United

Cape Town - Regardless of whether Radamel Falcao joins Manchester United permanently or not, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez will leave the club in the summer.

The Telegraph report that Louis van Gaal will attempt to sell the Mexican striker, who has 18 months left on his current United deal.

Several sources indicate that Real Madrid will send the former Chivas de Guadalajara player back to Old Trafford when his loan deal ends at the end of the season and the player will be offloaded in the summer by Manchester United.

"Chicharito" joined Real Madrid in the summer but has failed to usurp Karim Benzema for the lone striker's role at the Champions League holders.

Signed for £6 million in 2010, the striker failed to nail down a regular starting role at Old Trafford with most of his opportunities coming off the bench.

Hernandez scored an impressive 20 goals in his debut season but will not be given another chance to impressive United's Dutch manager.

Despite the speculation surrounding the future of Falcao at the "Theatre of Dreams", it seems clear that Hernandez has kicked his last ball at Old Trafford.
