Javier Hernandez all smiles in training with Manchester United ahead of Club Brugge

by Sam Peoples

Javier Hernandez has become a bit of a forgotten man at Manchester United.

He returned from his season long loan at Real Madrid quietly and has been getting on with himself back at Carrington in the background.

However, Wayne Rooney‘s dismal form surely means there is a possibility Chicharito could be taking a more central role sooner rather than later.

The Mexican is Louis van Gaal‘s second choice striker behind Rooney and if there is one problem with United at the moment it is their lack of threat in the final third.

Could Chicharito change that? There are plenty who feel his best days in a United shirt are now behind him in the past but Van Gaal doesn’t have many other options.

Once upon a time, Chicharito was the first person who United would turn to when they were in need of a goal. With such an important game against Club Brugge on Tuesday, will that be the time where Van Gaal gives him the opportunity to prove himself?
