As the new Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal begins in earnest the restructuring of the football club, it’s being reported that not only Danny Welbeck, will be leaving Old Trafford but also Javier Hernandez?!
Corriere dello Sport an Italian based newspaper are reporting that Juventus have agreed personal terms and conditions with United’s No14 striker. Juventus are being seriously linked with United’s Mexican hitman. It’s not clear how much validity there is in the rumour as the Bianconeri the Italian side are also suggesting a loan move for the 26 year old might be possible, with the Italian club having the option to buy Little Pea out-right at the end of season 2014-15.
The domino effect is in operation here as the Mexican could be possibly used as a make-weight in United’s exhaustive pursuit of Arturo Vidal, which is not reaching a conclusion. To secure the talents of Chilean powerhouse anchor-man, Vidal would cost United in the region of £35m and according to Corriere dello Sport in addition also Javier Hernandez.
Either way Juventus are apparently working in preparation for Arturo Vidal’s departure from Turin, monitoring Adrien Rabiot at Paris Saint-Germain and also Daniele Baselli at lesser Italian side, Atalanta.
Everybody associated with the Red Devils fell in love with Javier Hernandez when he arrived at Manchester United in July 2010, totally unannounced and a breathe of fresh air with his humble outlook. Likened to one Norwegian baby-faced assassin.
Hernandez has made to date 154 appearances for United netting 59 goals, not too shabby for a relative unknown footballer from Mexico who cost a relatively insignificant £8m fee. Yet as has been reported on The Faithful, Javier Hernandez’s – International appearances since his arrival at Manchester United have waned, why is this?
In his first season 2010/11 the smiling Mexican at Manchester United bagged 20 goals in all competitions, with his searing pace and versatility, winning a Premier League medal in his inaugural season.
Scoring 12 goals in 2011/12 and because of the increased United strike-force and injury in 2013/14 Hernandez struck 9 goals in all competitions.
Unfortunately Hernandez oft attaining the moniker ‘born offside’ and clumsy of a first touch, was attached to Chicharito.
Would you be sorry to see Javier Hernandez leave Manchester United, are there too many strikers at United, when you consider Cole, Yorke, Sheringham and Solskjaer in the not too distant past.
Would you prefer to see Danny Welbeck or Javier Hernandez sold, or neither, should a club of Manchester United’s stature not have 4 proven full International players as the option for the manager?
