Expect Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez to Take the MLS By Storm
Mexican international Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez is set to complete his move from La Liga side Sevilla to MLS outfit LA Galaxy in the coming days and if the deal does indeed go ahead then you can expect the former Manchester United man to be a big hit Stateside.
Hernandez would likely to take the seat left warm by the departing Swedish legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and there is no reason to suggest that the 31-year-old couldn’t do just as much damage to MLS defences as his predecessor.
Sources in the US claim that Javier Hernandez would become the best paid player in the league and when it comes to any MLS betting for the coming season, you should back the instinctive finisher to lead the goalscoring charts and be a big hit for his Californian employers.
Hernandez first hit the heights when he left his hometown club in Guadalajara back in 2010, moving to Premier League giants Manchester United. Though he was rarely a nailed on starter at Old Trafford, the forward was a bit hit with fans and critics alike.
He bagged 59 goals for United and impressed in spells during his loan move to Real Madrid, before a move to Germany got him back into gear. Regular action with Bayer Leverkusen was matched by great form for the Mexican national team, for whom he is their best-ever goalscorer.
In recent seasons things have stuttered somewhat and a move to West Ham in 2017 was largely disappointing and his move to Spain hasn’t really borne fruit so a move to the US might be best for all parties.
One thing is for sure, if Hernandez is on his best game, then you can expect him to score goals for fun in the MLS.
