The European champions were looking to reinforce their attacking line following the departure of Alvaro Morata to Juventus this summer.

The 26-year-old Hernandez, who joined the Red Devils in 2010 from Mexican outfit Guadalajara, had grown increasingly frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford and was looking for a new challenge.

"Real Madrid and Manchester United have reached an agreement for the transfer of Javier Hernandez Chicharito, who will join the club for the current season.

"Real Madrid holds an option to buy the player.

"Javier Hernandez Chicharito will hold a press conference at the Santiago Bernabeu on Monday afternoon."

Manchester United have agreed a fee with Ajax for the transfer of Holland international Daley Blind.

Reports in Holland suggest the agreed fee is 18 million euros (£14.2million).


United to seal record deal for di Maria

Manchester United are expected to complete the British-record signing of Angel di Maria later today.

Press Association Sport understands the Argentina winger will undergo a medical with the club this morning after a £59.7million fee was agreed with Real Madrid.

Di Maria was absent from the Real squad that beat Cordoba 2-0 at the Bernabeu on Monday evening.

United have made no official comment on the matter, but it is understood the agreed fee between the Red Devils and Real will eclipse the Premier League record £50million Chelsea paid to Liverpool for Fernando Torres in 2011.

Should he sign, the 26-year-old cannot be involved in United's Capital One Cup tie at MK Dons on Tuesday night but could be set for a debut in Saturday's Barclays Premier League match at Burnley.

United appear in desperate need of a lift after a loss and a draw from their opening two league games and the man who was named man of the match in May's Champions League final would certainly give them that.
