In a move that is sure to shake the soccer world, Manchester United have shockingly sold Mexican starlet Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez to Premier League rivals Chelsea. The move, which will cost Chelsea in the region of $20 million, was completed last night as top representatives from the clubs met in London.
Many questions will need to be answered in the coming days regarding the sudden and confusing departure of Hernandez who has dazzled the Old Trafford faithful in his first season in England. According to some early reports, Hernandez had a locker room blow up with Dimitar Berbatov whom he has replaced as Wayne Rooney’s regular strike partner. While nothing has been officially commented on by Manchester United, the story does seem plausible as league leading goal scorer Berbatov has found time on the pitch hard to come by recently.
While Man U fans will be left wondering, Chelsea is already cashing in on their new recruit with Chicharito jerseys already on sale. Oh by the way… APRIL FOOLS!
