Hernandez has signed a new deal

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has signed a new five-year contract which will keep him at Old Trafford until the end of the 2015/16 season, the Barclays Premier League champions have announced. 

The Mexico international made a stunning impact after arriving in England last season, with 20 goals in all competitions, and United have responded to both that and recent speculation linking the player with Real Madrid by tying him down to a long-term deal. 

Hernandez said: "Playing for Manchester United has been a dream come true for me. I never expected my first year to go so well and I'm delighted to commit my future to United. 

"To win a title and appear in a Champions League final was fantastic. I'm looking forward to helping my team-mates as we bid to win more trophies for this great club." 

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson added: "The last player I remember making an impact as big and as quickly as Javier is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he reminds me of Ole a lot. His talent for creating space in the box and his finishing ability mark him out as a natural goalscorer. 

"Off the pitch, he is a pleasure to manage. He works very hard and is a popular member of the squad." 

The news comes as a welcome boost for a United side smarting from yesterday's 6-1 hammering at home to rivals Manchester City.
