* Real agree one-year loan deal for Mexico striker
* Move follows United agreement for Falcao loan
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.
"Real Madrid and Manchester United have reached an agreement for the loan of the player Javier Hernandez, who will be tied to the club for the current season," Real said in a statement on their website (www.realmadrid.com) on Monday.
Real have an option to buy the 26-year-old, who is valued at 14 million euros (18.4 million US dollar) on website transfermarkt.com, and he would be presented to the media at the Bernabeu stadium later on Monday, the European champions added. United also confirmed the move on their Twitter account.
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.
Real suffered a surprise 4-2 La Liga reverse at Real Sociedad on Sunday and their next outing is at home to champions Atletico Madrid on Sept. 13.
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)
