I refuse to make a joke about the shirt sponsor
(That’s deadly as in his finishing. Nothing to do with swine flu. Just to know.)
Man United’s new signing, and the club’s first ever Mexican signing, is Javier ‘Chicharito’ (Little Pea) Hernandez. He’s a striker with very quick feet and an impressive scoring record for club Chivas de Guadalajara. Subject to a work permit, he’ll join United on July 1st. As well as the transfer fee, the English champs will play a friendly, also in July, to help launch Chivas’s new 45,000-seater stadium.
Judging by his YouTube highlights reel…
… he could make the perfect foil for Wazza Rooney.
