Hernandez completes Real Madrid medical

Chicharito has coughed for the doctor.

Nearly there now. Javier Hernandez is soon to be an ex-United player, as his move to Real Madrid proceeds with relative smoothness. After the agreement comes the medical, and it appears that the Mexican has passed with flying colours. Whatever flying colours are. Pea green, presumably.

At least, that's according to the photo above. Though quite why Hernandez is lying on a bed and giving the camera a shirtless thumbs up isn't clear, and is making tBB suspicious. That's what Spanish medicals are supposed to look like. Has he in fact packed it all in to become a doctor?

The Hernandez deal looks likely to be a loan move, though we'd expect there to be a pre-agreed fee and a first option to buy. That seems to be the way of things these days. More details as we get them. In the meantime, exclusive footage of Hernandez's medical is below:
