Javier Hernandez favourites tweet involving Harry Kane, and Manchester United future

Javier Hernandez wants to remain at Manchester United, amid rumours linking him to Tottenham Hotspur.

Javier Hernandez has given an indication that his heart is set on a stay at Manchester United.

The striker was loaned to Real Madrid last season but featured on the bench at Old Trafford in the Premier League opener against Tottenham.

Spurs are a club he has been linked with, the London Evening Standard reporting this week that they are confident they will be able to sign him.

United have in turn been linked with a mega-money deal for Tottenham forward Harry Kane, with The Mirror reporting enquiries have been made by the Red Devils.

Hernandez last night favourited a tweet from a United fan which read how they need him to stay rather than sign Kane.

Hernandez - Kane

Whether United boss Louis van Gaal listens remains to be seen, but he has not yet given Hernandez a chance to prove himself since his appointment.

With strike options thin on the ground behind Wayne Rooney, he could yet play a key role this season, but interest from interested clubs mean his future remains uncertain.

Over the last four Premier League seasons, the duo have played precisely the same number of minutes, but it is Kane who possesses a better goal per game ratio, scoring the same amount, but Kane in fewer appearances.
