According to the Daily Express Mexican striker Javier Hernandez will not be returning to Manchester United after his loan spell with Real Madrid in the summer after falling out of favour and seemingly not in Louis Van Gaal’s plans for the future. Chicharito was pretty much told that he had no future at the Old Trafford club after the arrival of Colombian striker Radamel Falcao, who is currently on loan with United for the remainder of the season, with an option to buy the player from AS Monaco in the summer.
The veteran Dutch manager will be hoping that if Hernandez starts to make a name for himself in Spain, and score goals, he might see interest from other clubs come in for the Mexican and then be able to sell him for a premium during the summer transfer window, which should bring in some funds for Falcao’s permanent move, or help provide funds for the managers summer plans. Hernandez has already gathered interest from Bayern Munich, Tottenham Hotspur and AS Roma.
Chicharito signed for United in the summer of 2010 from Chivas Guadalajara in his native Mexico, a deal that was sealed in April of the same year. The striker netted 21 goals in his debut season, looking to be the player the club needed, but his performances soon dwindled and the criticism started soon after that. Hernandez was used as an impact striker from the bench, and from then on he started to fall down the ranks, at one time he was the clubs fourth choice striker, which just have come as a shock, but it was his own fault for not performing. He lost his place in the starting eleven for Mexico, something which continued throughout the FIFA World Cup in the summer.
Hernandez, who signed for Real Madrid on Transfer Deadline Day, has now scored twice for the Spanish giants in four appearances, with one of the goals being a great strike. Chicharito is yet to make a name for himself at the Santiago Bernabéu, mainly because of the Galactico’s currently at the club. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema are all a threat to him as they will find their names on the team sheet before the Mexican will. If he can dislodge Benzema from the starting eleven and perform at a better rate than he did at United, Real Madrid may look to secure his future in the summer.
