The Mexican, who had barely figured for Real Madrid after joining them from Manchester United last summer, was handed a rare start against Atletico Madrid last week and took advantage by scoring the winner to put his side into the Champions League semi-finals.
With Karim Benzema still out injured, the loanee then started against Celta on Sunday, and he responded with a clinical brace.
That has prompted suggestions that Madrid will look to sign him permanently in the summer ??? they have an option to do so for 10million euros.??
When asked whether his recent goals have made it essential for Madrid to sign him, he said: ???More than anything else they???ve served to give me confidence; I love playing football ??? it???s what makes me feel good.??
“Only God knows where I will be this time next year, for moment, my only plan is to continue enjoying this moment and helping the best team in the world.
???I???m getting opportunities now and I have to make the most of them.???
