Javier Hernandez: I do not know if I will stay at Manchester United

Javier Hernandez

In the latest transfer rumours and news, proven hitman may leave Old Trafford. Clubs as varied as Aston Villa, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid could be linked.

Seldom-used Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, a tertiary attacking choice - at best - under the erstwhile stewardship of departed manager David Moyes, has confirmed that his status as a rostered player at Old Trafford is ambiguous but that he will know his future within the next three months.

The 25-year-old Mexican was a bit-part Premier League player last season but demonstrated his renowned ability inside the penalty area as he returned four goals and one assist in five League Cup appearances - an attacking efficiency of a goal scored or assisted every 64 minutes on average.

Throughout his stint at United, Hernandez scored 59 goals and assisted 20 in 152 appearances in all competitions. He was perhaps most renowned for his reliability as a 'supersub' and his predatory instincts and so would represent a tempting purchase for any of his suitors, particularly if he becomes available for his transfermarkt.co.uk valuation of £15m.

Speaking to reporters in Mexico, Chicharito explained his situation: "My future could be decided tomorrow, a little after, inside three months. [There is the chance I could] stay there [at United but], I don’t honestly know."

He continued: "My people are working it out."

Since the end of the last transfer window, Hernandez had been linked with a move to Monaco (The Express), Internazionale and Valencia (both The People), Atletico Madrid (Metro) and, most recently, Aston Villa (Daily Star).

However, there are also other clubs whose interest could be piqued by the potential availability of the player yet to reach his peak years as a footballer and an athlete, such as Arsenal, where a fox-in-the-box type number 9 would thrive due to the service provided from wide by Theo Walcott.

Mexico manager Miguel Herrera will encourage a transfer, as he recently said: "In the case of ‘Chicharo,’ I believe it’d be in his interest to leave so he is taken into consideration to play."
