The management of Manchester United has told Javier Hernandez that he can leave at the end of the season.
English newspaper Daily Star has reported today that United management has come to a conclusion that the Mexican international is no more required at Old Trafford and are ready to let him go.
The Daily Star says the Mexico striker – nicknamed Little Pea – has failed to impress manager David Moyes this season.
The 25-year-old has made just four starts for Manchester United in the Premier League so far this season as he has been continually overlooked by Moyes.
The former Everton manager has instead opted to start the likes of Danny Welbeck and even Shinji Kagawa when either Robin van Persie or Wayne Rooney have been out injured.
He has scored twice but the United boss isn’t a fan of the 25-year-old.
Hernandez, who has previously attracted interest from Tottenham, wants first-team football and is understood to be frustrated at his lack of opportunities.
Inter Milan have already snapped up United skipper Nemanja Vidic and have been linked with a swoop for Hernandez too.
However, Inter president Erick Thohir denied the interest and said: “Chicharito is a good player but we have not spoken with him.”
Despite his struggle at Old Trafford, Chicharito is a regular starter for Mexico. Hernández made his debut for Mexico in September 2009 in a match against Colombia. He has also represented them at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup. He was the Gold Cup’s top scorer with 7 goals and was named the most valuable player of the tournament. Hernandez is the joint third highest goalscorer of all-time for the Mexican national team.
Mexican striker Javier Hernandez has been unsettled for quite awhile in Manchester United, and it seems like no matter how many goals he scores, he will never become a regular starter for the Red Devils.
‘Chicharito’ has been drawing heavy interest in recent years and he became a top target for many teams since he scored more than 20 goals in his first year at Old Trafford. While he has not been able to replicate that success in the recent season, he’s still a premier striker who can score goals for fun, and it seems like his most likely destination would be La Liga.
Both Atletico Madrid and Valencia are believed to be interested in the Mexican star. In January his agent, Eduardo Hernandez, said he was wanted by six clubs in Spain, France, Germany and Italy, including one of the biggest in the world.
