Chicharito pens new deal – Agent

The Mexico striker made a stunning impact after arriving in England

last season, with 20 goals in all competitions, and United have now

responded by tying him down to a long-term deal. His representative

Eduardo Hernandez is quoted by various English newspapers as

telling ESPN Deportes: “We have renegotiated Javier’s contract and

he is now committed for five years with Manchester United. “The

initial contract was good for Manchester and for Javier because it

enabled them both to see if they could fit together and if he could

achieve what was expected of him. Both sides have met their

expectations and United were happy to reward Javier after his very

good performances last season. “I will not talk about numbers, but

it is a five-year contract. It is a fixed salary with incentives

based on the team’s success in each of the different tournaments.

“Javier was not badly paid with his initial contract, but it was

his first contract and, with respect, not comparable with the likes

of Wayne Rooney and Nani. But today I can say that the contract has

just been signed and everyone is satisfied.” Eduardo Hernandez also

played down recent speculation linking Spanish giants Real Madrid

with a move for his client, saying: “It was never likely that

Javier would leave. “Talks began some time ago and United came up

with a very good offer and I have nothing but praise for the way

they have recognised Javier’s performances.” The new deal for

Hernandez follows that signed on Monday by United midfielder Tom

Cleverley, while striker Danny Welbeck has also been offered a new

deal.
