Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has admitted that it did not take long for him to make his mind up about leaving Old Trafford when he found out that Bayer Leverkusen were interested, the Daily
The Mexican has signed a three-year deal with Roger Schmidt’s side, after the Bundesliga outfit agreed a £7.3m fee with the Red Devils, according to the Express.
And the 27-year-old explained that he had become unhappy as part of Louis van Gaal’s side, and was hoping to rediscover his passion for the game in Germany.
“I want to go back to feeling important and happy. I want to find happiness,” he said.
“Bayer made me feel important and loved and coming here was not a difficult decision to make. They made me feel wanted,” he added.
It had become apparent that the former Real Madrid loanee was not a major part of van Gaal’s plans this season as despite the club’s lack of options up front, the Dutchman often refrained from using Hernandez.
Like United, Leverkusen don’t have a huge amount of options to choose from up front, having sold Heung-Min Son to Tottenham earlier in the window, so it seems much more likely that Chicharito will enjoy a prolonged run in the side.
