Javier Hernandez has reached an agreement with Real Madrid and will be unveiled at the Santiago Bernabueu later on Monday, after completing his loan move to the European Champions.
With Radamel Falcao arriving on loan from Monaco, Hernandez's opportunities to break into the first XI appeared even more limited and Louis Van Gaal decided the Mexican could be moved on, after months of speculations had linked him a host of European clubs, including Juventus, Valencia and Inter Milan.
With no Champions League or even...gasp...Europa League football this season to dangle as a sweetner, Manchester United had to turn to one of their highest-ranking foot soldiers in order to get the loan deal for Radamel Falcao over the line.
With Arsenal, Real Madrid and Man City all heavily linked for the past few days, it looks like Manchester United have come up on the rails and pipped the lot to the signing of Radamel Falcao.
Now, it's worth noting that the Daily Mail have a propensity to jump the gun with things like this in the name of click-baiting, but never-the-less the paper have gone ahead and confirmed that United have won the race to sign Falcao.

Arsenal and Manchester United target from Italy completes transfer move - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Reigning La Liga winners Atletico Madrid have completed the signing of Alessio Cerci from Italian side Torino reports the Guardian. We had reported yesterday that Arsenal wee interested in the 27 year old who scored21 goals and grabbed 19 assists for Torino in the last two seasons in the Serie A.
It's edging ever closerandManchester United are now on the home stretch in their bid to finalise a loan deal for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao.
However, the Telegraph are reporting that United have had to agree to pay the Colombian striker's absolutely extortionate Monaco salary (£18million per annum) in full in order to push the deal through, meaning that they're going to have to find£346,000-a-week to shovel into the 29-year-old's bank account.
With James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao already jumping the Monaco ship this transfer window, it seems like Joao Moutinho may have had a word in his agent's ear and tasked him with landing a move before he's stuck treading water at the Stade Louis for another six months.
It's been in the offing for several hours, but Javier Hernandez's season-long loan move from Manchester United's substitute's bench to Real Madrid's has now officially been confirmed by the Spanish club.
The following short statement has just appeared on the Real website:
"Real Madrid CF and Manchester United have reached an agreement for the transfer of [Chicharito].
In one of the more dramatic deadline day deals in recent history, Manchester United have signed Radamel Falcao from AS Monaco to a season-long loan for a reported fee of£6 million. The 28-year-old reportedly earns £300,000-a-week, but United will not be expected to cover the full amount.
Newsof a deal between the two European clubs emanated from South America late Sunday night/early Monday morning.
Manchester United have agreed a season-long deal for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, subject to the Colombian passing a medical at Carrington later on Monday.
According to Sky Sports, the deal for the former Atletico Madrid centre-forward includes the option of United signing the 28-year-old, who missed out on the World Cup in the summer after suffering a serious knee injury last season.
He was left out of the World Cup, and it now appears that Radamel Falcao's own reputation is being questioned. With El Tigre's £6m (or is it£9m now with taxes?) loan move to Old Trafford announced a few hours ago, United fans may be worried that his last appearance in the Champions League was four years ago.
It seems that Tom Cleverley is pretty much destined to be following Shinji Kagawa out of the Old Trafford exit door before the transfer window closes, with Aston Villa and Hull City previously thought to be making in-roads toward an £8million deal for the oft-maligned midfielder.
