Javier Hernandez: I know nothing of Real Madrid interest


Bayer Leverkusen striker Javier Hernandez says he has not been made aware of any potential interest from Real Madrid.

Chicharito spent the 2014-15 season on loan with the Spanish giants, where he scored nine goals across all competitions.

And despite being linked with a return to the Santiago Bernabéu, Hernandez insists he is happy in Germany.

“I don’t know anything about Real Madrid,” the Mexican international told reporters.

“I have always said that, when I lived there, I had two stages: the first was negative but the second one got better because I had more opportunities. It’s just a shame we couldn’t win anything.

“I am really grateful to the Real Madrid board and supporters but I haven’t heard anything about that. I am a Leverkusen player and I am very happy here.”

Hernandez earlier this week returned to England in his side’s win over Tottenham in the Champions League, which he labelled as a big win for his side.

“We came to Wembley and we were able to take the three points, which is massive for us,” he added.

“They’re one of the best teams in Europe with a top-class coach, so we tried to play our game. We had many chances and scored just one.

“We are happy and we have to think about next Saturday’s match in the Bundesliga [against Darmstadt] before we go to the national teams.”
