Hernandez advised to leave United by Mexico coach

Javier Hernandez could be one of the players leaving Manchester United this summer after Mexico coach, Miguel Herrera, told the player that he should be looking to leave the Old Trafford club. Chicharito signed for United back in April 2010, making his move to Manchester that summer, scoring 20 goals in his debut season. Herrera did pick the Mexican in their squad for the FIFA World Cup this summer, but with the player only making 12 starts in all competitions last season for his club, he believes it is not time for the player to search for another club.

Hernandez has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal at time this year, but United will be reluctant to sell to clubs that are considered as their rival, especially with both clubs finishing about them last season. Atlético Madrid and Valencia were also seen as possible destinations for the talented Mexican, with Inter Milan also being thrown into the mix. It will be tough seeing Chicharito leave the club, but granted, he was rarely given a chance last season and that only came with injuries to first choice pairing Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

With Louis van Gaal now being announced as the new manager at United, there will be even more uncertainty for Hernandez, who will presume that Van Persie will be given the star player role at the club, which really will not increase his options at the club, and he does deserve to be playing much more regularly. Speaking about Hernandez, Herrera said:

“In the case of ‘Chicharito’, I believe it’d be in his interest to leave so he is taken into consideration to play.”

Hernandez has also spoken about his future, weighing up what Herrera has told him. Speaking to Record, he said:

“There is obviously uncertainty, but right now I am fully focused on the national team.

“My agent and my staff help me work it all out. My future could be decided tomorrow, a little after or within three months. (I could) stay there (in Manchester), I really don’t know.”

Not that long ago both Real Madrid and Barcelona were both showing signs of interest in the Mexican striker, but with Atlético Madrid’s Diego Costa seemingly off to Chelsea this summer, they could be in the market for a new striker, and I feel Chicharito would make an impact in Spain and he would still feature in the Champions League, with Atlêti qualifying as the La Liga champions after they beat Barcelona on the final day of the Spanish season last weekend. I very much doubt Chicharito’s future will be resolved before the World Cup this summer, so I am sure there will be more rumours and more clubs being linked with the player.
