Southampton interested in signing Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez

by Sam Peoples

Southampton are considering another move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez according to The Telegraph.

Hernandez, 26, was completely out of favour last year out of Old Trafford and looks to be on the way out of United as his poacher style of play doesn’t suit Louis van Gaal‘s system.

His departure isn’t set in stone but with Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck all way ahead of him in the pecking order and striking sensation James Wilson from the Under-21s knocking on the door of the first team, now seems the right time for Hernandez to leave.

However, there’s not a chance United should consider trying to sell him to Southampton even if they offer more money than other clubs because Hernandez deserves better.

He’s good enough to be a starting striker at plenty of clubs and given that Spanish champions Atletico Madrid are interested in signing him, that’d be a much better move for Hernandez.

He might not suit Van Gaal’s style but Hernandez is still one of the most lethal finishers in the box when he is playing confidently and if he is to leave United this summer, he needs to go to a top team to reflect that, not Southampton.
