Hernandez signs new Man Utd deal

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has signed a contract extension to tie him down at Old Trafford until 2016, BBC Sport reports.

The Mexican forward scored 20 goals last season, his first in English football, and amid speculation of a possible move to Real Madrid, United have moved quickly to sign Hernandez to a long-term deal. The 23 year old’s new contract extension comes as great news to the United faithful, who have grown fondly of Hernandez’ play.

Hernandez spoke of the new deal and about playing for United as a ‘dream come true’ and he is looking forward to helping his teammates compete both domestically and on a European stage after their success last season.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson likened Hernandez to former United forward Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and hailed the Mexican, who he called ‘a pleasure to manage’.
