Real Madrid have moved to broaden their options in attack by agreeing to sign Mexico striker Javier Hernandez on loan from Manchester United for the 2014-15 season.Hernandez joined United from his hometown side Guadalajara in July 2010, but after a fine debut season, during which he scored a total of 20 goals, he has played mostly as a substitute.Their next outing is at home to champions Atletico Madrid on Sept. 13, when Hernandez could well make his debut.Asked whether he would accept playing mainly as a substitute, Hernandez said he had come to Real to be "part of the squad". Hernandez is the son of namesake Javier Hernandez, a Mexico striker who featured at the 1986 World Cup and was nicknamed "Chicharo," or "pea," because of his green eyes.
