Former Manchester United man and Mexican international Javier Hernandez will complete a transfer to Sevilla before the transfer deadline.

According to reports out of the Daily Mail, Javier Hernandez will become a Sevilla player today.

Hernandez was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2010 for Manchester United in a deal that was considered a bargain 7.5 million Euros at the time.

While many of his appearances at United were as of that of a substitute, he did manage 157 of them, scoring 59 goals and adding 20 assists. He was a fan favorite.

Upon Ferguson’s retirement, Fernandez was deemed surplus to requirements and was loaned out to Real Madrid. For Los Blancos, he managed 33 appearances, scoring nine goals and having nine assists.

He returned to United, to find yet another manager, and again surplus to requirements. This time the move was permanent though. A 12 million Euro move to Bayern Leverkusen.

Again Chicharito, as he is known, was as prolific as ever. Scoring 39 goals and having nine assists in 76 games in the Bundesliga.

This form prompted current employers West Ham United to pay almost 18 million Euros for Hernandez.

The move to London was not quite as successful as others and has seen him struggle to settle in the capital.

Last season saw him make 28 appearances, and score eight times, but a couple of niggling injuries made the season a little stop-start for him.

He has featured twice already this season and scored a goal.

However, with an offer rumoured to be in the 8 million region too good for the Hammers to turn down for a 31-year-old with only a year left on his contract.

The striker has been pictured in Spain, posing for photos in front of the Sevilla club logo. It is believed the Spanish side have offered him a three-year deal.
