Manchester United-owned striker Javier Hernandez seems to be enjoying life at Real Madrid.

Manchester United-owned striker Javier Hernandez seems to be enjoying himself at Real Madrid.

The Mexico international striker has scored two goals in three La Liga appearances for the Spanish champions so far this season and has bedded in well with his new teammates.

Hernandez has been snapped laughing and having fun with the Madrid stars in training (click here to read more), and on Thursday he was full of smiles during the club’s official photo shoot.

The 26-year-old was deemed surplus to requirements by United manager Louis van Gaal, but in Madrid he is very much a wanted player.

Hernandez is not guaranteed playing time and will have to play second fiddle to first-choice striker Karim Benzema at Los Blancos, but he knew that already when he moved to the 2014 Champions League winners on a season-long loan deal on transfer deadline day.

However, the former Guadalajara star is certain to see more action at Madrid than he would have at United, where Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao would have blocked his way to the starting line-up.
