Javier Hernandez is granted work permit to complete 7m Manchester United move

Manchester United have completed the deal to sign Javier Hernandez after the Mexico striker was granted a work permit. United last month agreed a £7million fee with Mexican side Guadalajara for the 22-year-old before the player also completed a medical and agreed personal terms. United had only been awaiting confirmation of his work permit to complete his transfer, which will go through on July 1. Green light: Javier Hernandez has been granted a work permit to play in England Hernandez's confirmation as a United player had been held up because he had played less than 75% of Mexico's internationals during the past two years. He is, however, set to be a part of the Mexico squad at the World Cup finals in South Africa following which he is due to join United's squad for the Philadelphia leg of their pre-season tour of the United States and Canada. Hernandez, who is nicknamed 'Chicharito', described his move to Old Trafford as 'living the dream' after he completed his medical in Manchester last month.
