Javier Hernandez accepts he will be leaving Man Utd – report

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez has spent the season on loan at Real Madrid and it has been frustrating spell for the Mexican striker given how much time he has been on the bench under Carlo Ancelotti.

Hernandez joined Madrid last summer in a season-long loan deal but has struggled to impress in Spain having only been given 198-minutes of La Liga action.

Now, the latest reports suggest the Mexican has accepted he will not be at the club next season with Bayern Munich, Lazio and Roma all interested in his services. Closer to home, Premier League trio West Ham, Tottenham and Everton are all monitoring his situation.

It appeared that Hernandez may see more game time at Madrid after manager Carlo Ancelotti insisted the team needed him but his minutes on the pitch have not increased. It’s unlikely that situation is ever going to change with Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Jese keeping him out of the team.

There has been endless speculation about his future given his respectable record of 37 Premier League goals in 102 appearances and reports earlier in January suggested he had rejected a move to the MLS.

Given the poor form of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie at Man United there is a small chance the club may keep him but the likelihood is Hernandez will be playing in a different team’s colours next season.

It’s definitely the right time for Hernandez to move on from Man United because he won’t have a place under Louis van Gaal and at 26, he has plenty of time left to have a great career away from Old Trafford.
