Javier Hernandez has admitted he doesn’t know whether he is going to stay at Manchester United but is uncertain of the future at this stage.
Chicharito endured a stop start campaign under David Moyes and cut a frustrated figure for most of the season leading to questions as to whether he would remain at United past the summer.
Some unsubtle hints on social media during the season also supported that idea and the Mexican has now told reporters that his representatives are working on a solution.
“My future could be decided tomorrow, a little after, inside three months, (I could) stay there (in Manchester), I don’t honestly know,” Hernandez said.
“My people are working it out,” he said. “I’m here trying to be 100 percent focused.”
When Hernandez joined back in 2010, he was an absolute revelation and to this day, his infectiously positive attitude is endearing but now feels like the right time for him to move on, both for his career and for United.
In the 2012/13 season, Hernandez showed a much improved all-round game but that disappeared last year and although he is a great striker in the six yard box, we need players who have more to their game.
Added to the fact we have James Wilson, a striking protege who needs a platform to perform, and Hernandez’s game time prospects look bleak.
He’s a fantastic striker and deserves to go a great team but for the interest of his career and the opportunity to let Wilson blossom, Chicharito should move on to pastures new this summer.
