The hoopla at Real Madrid over the recent signing of Norwegian starlet Martin Odegaard might have brought a pang of woe for another striker on the squad, Mexico's Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. Not so long ago, the forward enjoyed the celebratory buzz as one of Manchester United's most promising young players. Now that fanfare has died away, ahead lies an uncertain future for Hernandez.

Though only 26, at what should be the prime of his athletic career, Hernandez has been reduced to playing...

New Real Madrid signing Martin Odegaard was introduced to the media on Thursday.

If Martin Odegaard really doesn't feel any pressure on his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, then part of the battle in his quest to rise from teenage wonderkid to Real Madrid 'Galactico' has already been won. It is, however, a big if.
