Transfer news: Javier Hernandez wants to leave Manchester United - reports
Manchester United's Mexican forward may look elsewhere for first-team football as the World Cup edges closer
Friday 24 January 2014
Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez has reportedly told the club that he wishes to leave Old Trafford this month as the Mexican looks to ensure his World Cup place.
According to The Sun, 'Chicharito' is concerned that his lack of first-team action under David Moyes could considerably dent his chances of making Miguel Herrera's squad for the championships in Brazil.
The 25-year-old, who has made just fourteen Premier League appearances for United under the former Everton boss, is said to be optimistic that Juan Mata's imminent £37m transfer could lead to his exit.
Inter Milan are rumoured to be leading the chase for the former Guadalajara striker, but a host of European clubs are monitoring the situation.
Despite Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie both having to endure long stretches on the sidelines through injury, Hernandez appears to have been placed behind Danny Welbeck in Moyes' plans.
After scoring twenty goals in his debut season in the North West, hopes were high that the Mexican could go on to become a regular within the line-up.
Wednesday’s Capital One Cup semi-final against Sunderland, which they lost 2-1 on penalties, was Hernandez’s first start of the year.
Scoring the goal which temporarily kept their hopes alive, in the final minute of extra-time, he reminded the football community of his abilities within the six-yard box.
