* Real agree one-year loan deal for Mexico striker
* Move follows United agreement for Falcao loan (Adds Hernandez quotes)
MADRID, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Real Madrid have moved to broaden their options in attack by agreeing to sign Mexico striker Javier Hernandez on loan from Manchester United for the 2014-15 season.
The European champions have an option to buy the 26-year-old Hernandez, who is known as "Chicharito" (little pea) and will provide backup for Real's first-choice striker Karim Benzema, a France international.
Hernandez, valued at 14 million euros ($18.4 million) on website transfermarkt.com, passed a medical and was presented at the club's Bernabeu stadium.
"I don't think there is a player in the world who would not say this is a dream, it would be a lie," a beaming Hernandez told a news conference.
"I am coming to give my all so that this club can be more successful than it already is," he added.
"I will give everything. I hope to contribute my grain of sand so that many trophies continue to come."
Hernandez joined United from hometown side Guadalajara in July 2010 but after a fine debut season, when he scored 20 goals in all competitions, he has played mostly as a substitute.
Their next outing is at home to champions Atletico Madrid on Sept. 13, when Hernandez could make his debut.
Asked whether he would accept playing mainly as a substitute, Hernandez said he had come to Real to be "part of the squad".
"I see it as a great opportunity, to do what I like most which is playing football," he told reporters.
"The only thing I have in my heart is that I am grateful to those who have given me this chance.
"To be alongside the best players in the world and be able to develop and give everything to the club. I know that here 100 percent is demanded."
Hernandez is the son of namesake Javier Hernandez, a Mexico striker who featured at the 1986 World Cup and was nicknamed "Chicharo", or "pea", because of his green eyes. (1 US dollar = 0.7614 euro) (Reporting by Iain Rogers, editing by Justin Palmer/Rex Gowar)
