- Story Text: West Ham United confirmed on Monday (July 24) that they have completed a deal to sign Mexico striker Javier Hernandez from German side Bayer Leverkusen for 16 million pounds sterling ($20.75 million).
The 29-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid player, known as 'Chicharito', signed a three-year deal at the East London club on Monday.
Hernandez joined Manchester United from Chivas in 2010 and scored 59 goals in 156 appearances, as well as having a loan spell at Madrid, before joining Leverkusen in August 2015.
In Germany, he netted 39 times in 76 matches, and he is also Mexico's all-time leading goalscorer with 48, his most recent goal coming last month against Portugal in the Confederations Cup in Russia.
