Talk about an impending exit for Javier Hernandez has gathered pace once again this week.
Chicharito has had to settle for a spot on the bench behind the ever improving partnership of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. Following the Mexican’s hint that he might be beginning to get frustrated with his spot in the squad at United, he again had to watch as Rooney and van Persie played instrumental roles in the win over Arsenal from the sideline.
The Telegraph have suggested that Tottenham Hotspur will go in for Chicharito in January and Rene Meulensteen believes that the 25-year-old may well leave in order to find the game time that is proving so elusive at Old Trafford.
“If Hernandez comes to an age where he thinks he wants regular football and he can get into another top team in the Premier League then I can see him considering [leaving],” he told talkSPORT.
“With Hernandez, having Robin van Persie in that position mean sometimes you will fall short. That’s why it’s so important that, at the right time, you mix up the combinations and that all these players feel like they contribute to the competitions that you play in.
“Chicharito Hernandez is a fantastic striker. Wherever he pops up he will score goals.”
One of Moyes’ biggest challenges was making sure that every player was kept content with their minutes on the pitch and so far, the form of Rooney and Van Persie have limited Hernandez’s opportunities in the Premier League which has clearly frustrated the Mexican.
Losing Chicharito would be such a huge blow for the strength of our squad but if his game time continues to be limited, there is a strong possibility he will move to not only kick start his domestic career but give himself a much needed confidence boost for Mexico ahead of the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
