Javier Hernandez still remains being a player that has more time on the sidelines then on the pitch in Manchester United. The Mexican is overshadowed by the likes of Adnan Januzaj, Van Persie, Rooney and Welbeck all of those are players that Moyes prefers having upfront instead of Javier Hernandez.
So far in this season Hernandez has made 8 appearances in this season for United and most of them being made from the bench as a substitute player. Due to the lack of activeness for his club, a lot of clubs are taking an interest in Javier Hernandez as he just might be a viable target in this winter transfer window.
The 25 years old Mexican player has already expressed his frustration on having such a limited time to impress the coach and the club and according to the Sunday Telegraph Tottenham will make a move for Hernandez if they are able to sell Adebayor in January.
Arsenal are also interested in signing Hernandez but it is rather hard to believe that Manchester United will offload him to one of their biggest rivals of this season of the Premier League and this leaves Tottenham with the chance to make a swoop for the former Gualadalajara player.
With the 2014 World Cup nearing closer and closer, if Hernandez is chosen to be in the squad for his national team he would like to be at his absolute best in order to give Mexico chances on winning their group stages and get them into the next rounds of the World Cup but this will not happen if he stays in a club that he can barely have any playing time and is just mostly nothing more than a bench-warmer.
David Moyes has a vast array of attacking options in his disposal including the likes of: Wayne Rooney, Van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Adnan Januzaj which is tough competition for Javier Hernandez.
This competition in the front line of the English club has forced the Mexican player on being more on the sidelines than in the actual playing grounds. Playing a few minutes in some matches and added as substitute more than anything else which has caused rumors starting to spread about how longer he will stay in the club.
In recent interviews, the Mexican forward has showed his emotions and feelings towards having more playing time.
“I am desperate to play for 90 minutes but that is a decision for the gaffer.
“Every player in the world wants to start but I will do my best whether I play for one or 90 minutes.” Hernandez said.
This has attracted the attention of Tottenham who are interested in snapping him up.
Tottenham have already secured the services of Roberto Soldado with £26million being splashed out for the Spanish striker but Andre Villas-Boas already showed interest in getting the Manchester United player.
Athletic Madrid is another interested club for the player that seems to be nothing more than a substitute for Moyes.
“I strive for that [to start more games],” said the 25-year-old.
“I am working towards that – earning a spot as a starter. I know that my performance on the pitch will allow me to achieve that goal someday either here [in Manchester] or elsewhere for any other club.
The winter transfer window will be the decisive moment for the future regarding Javier Hernandez but if anything is for certain it’s the fact that he does not want to remain being a substitute player for United.
The manager of Manchester United, David Moyes, has said that it’s important to manage the workload of star striker Robin van Persie.
Persie was the stand out performer for United in their first game of the season yesterday. That was the Community Shield match in which United was taking on Wigan Athletic.
Persie found the net once in each half and guided his team to a comfortable 2-0 victory. This is the 5th time in the last 7 years that United has won the Community Shield.
Persie scored the first goal in the 6th minute by heading Evra’s cross home from a distance of 16 yards.
The Dutchman doubled the lead of United in the 59th minute with a flat shot from just outside the penalty area. That goal was set up by Danny Welbeck.
Talking to the reporters after that match, Moyes said, “Robin’s first goal was amazing. It was not easy to head the ball into the net from that angle and from that distance. But, he did that wonderfully.”
“His approach has been really impressive. He is a friendly guy who likes to cooperate. It’s been great working with him so far.”
“We will have to try and manage his workload. He is a vital guy and we need to keep him fit.”
Moyes also hailed the young winger Wilfried Zaha who made his debut for United by playing in that Community Shield game. Zaha was on the ground for almost an hour and he impressed everyone with his agility.
When asked about Zaha’s performance, Moyes said, “He had looked in good nick in the pre-season matches. So, we gave him a go and he did quite well. He is a young man and he will improve.”
Zaha is only 20 years of age at the moment. He had signed for Red Devils at the start of this year.
