Javier Hernandez turns down MLS move to stay in Europe

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has rejected a move to MLS in order to stay in Europe, according to Goal USA.

Hernandez, currently on loan at Real Madrid, has struggled for game time in Spain despite leaving United due to lack of minutes but it appears he wishes to stay in Europe now.

Whilst Hernandez would do well in America and his popularity would be sky-high given his Mexican heritage, Hernandez will feel he can find a better deal when he returns to Old Trafford this summer.

It seems unlikely Hernandez will get himself a permanent deal in Madrid given he has yet to impress Carlo Ancelotti enough to get himself regular game time, Hernandez has started just several games since his August move.

It also appears unlikely the Mexican striker will stay at United once his loan deal at Real ends. With Louis van Gaal seemingly unimpressed by Hernandez, it would be a surprise if any of United’s loanees remain at the club beyond this summer.

It remains unclear which MLS team tried to sway Hernandez to move to North America, LA Galaxy have recently moved to make Steven Gerrard one of their designated players but given Hernandez’s birth place, Chivas USA would be a good bet should Hernandez ever make the move in the future.
