Hernandez knows Madrid is is home - Butragueno

Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno says Javier Hernandez should always think of Real Madrid as his home.

Javier Hernandez can always consider Real Madrid to be his home, according to club director Emilio Butragueno.

The Mexico international scored nine goals in 33 appearances in a season-long loan at the Santiago Bernabeu from Manchester United in 2014-15.

Hernandez has since recaptured some of his very best form with Bayer Leverkusen, scoring 26 goals in all competitions for Roger Schmidt's side, prompting speculation that the 28-year-old could move on again in the next transfer window.

And Butragueno had nothing but praise for Hernandez's efforts during his time in the Spanish capital, telling ESPN: "The feeling we have is very positive. He's an extraordinary professional, a very positive guy.

"He had months where he didn't play much, but still trained fabulously well, very positive for the group, a very good friend.

"When he was involved, he always helped us. I remember the goal in the quarter-final against Atletico Madrid that got us into the semi-finals.

"We have great affection for him. In terms of the future, he's done very well in Germany this season because he's a very competitive player, he needs to play and feel important.

"We'll see what the future holds, but we wish him well and he knows that Real Madrid is his home."
