Manchester United signed Mexican striker Javier Hernandez

Manchester United Javier Hernandez
Manchester United has reached an agreement with Mexican club, Chivas for the purchase of 21 year-old Mexican striker Javier Hernandez, better known as “Chicharito,” for a reported fee of £6million.

From ManUtd.com - If a permit is granted, Javier will become a Manchester United player on 1 July 2010. As part of the deal, the Club will play a match to open the new 45,000 capacity Chivas Stadium in Guadalajara as part of its 2010/11 season preparations.

Sir Alex Ferguson said: "I am delighted to reach agreement with Chivas to bring such an exciting young striker, who has been in such prolific form for both his club and his country. He will be a great addition to our squad and we look forward to welcoming our first Mexican player in the summer.

We are equally excited to play our first game in Mexico, opening the magnificent new Chivas Stadium in July."

What's his record?
Pretty impressive. He's scored 21 goals in 28 appearances for Chivas this term and has netted four times in as many games for Mexico. At 5ft 9in, he's not the biggest striker in the world, but he's quick and certainly knows his way to goal.

When can we see him in action for the Reds?
Not until he has received a work permit. If that is granted, Javier will join United officially on 1 July and could make his debut in a pre-season friendly against Chivas in Guadalajara.
