Javier Hernandez appears to give his strongest hint yet that he will leave Manchester United unless he plays regularly

Striker's official twitter account retweeted interview with Carlos Vela saying Hernandez should think about leaving Old Trafford

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has appeared to endorse comments made by former Arsenal striker Carlos Vela that suggested his Mexico team-mate should leave Old Trafford if he isn’t handed a more regular role by David Moyes.

Speaking ahead of United’s Champions League trip to face his Real Sociedad side on Wednesday, Vela said he “didn’t understand why a player of his quality has not played more games. If he doesn’t play regularly he will need to think about leaving”.

The article was later retweeted by Hernandez’s official Twitter account, which has more than 2.5 million followers.
