Louis van Gaal has a huge series of tasks left to do as the Dutchman is going through his debut season in charge of Manchester United but things has been a complete disaster for the manager who was selected to replace David Moyes. Manchester United started their season with a surprising defeat against Swansea City and a few days later drawing with Sunderland.
However, the problems of Louis van Gaal are not only in the recent disappointing results they have picked up but also in the entirety of the team as there are a number of players which have an undefined future at Old Trafford.
Ever since joining Manchester United on April of 2010, Javier Hernandez could never really find a place in the starting lineup of any of the managers that have been in charge of the club. Neither Sir. Alex Ferguson, David Moyes or latest one Louis van Gaal could never really fully utilize the Mexican attacker on a consistent basis as he was mostly used as a substitute player who could barely get to play for a few minutes and nothing more than that.
A few of the fringe players at Old Trafford are expected to be released by Louis van Gaal before the transfer window ends as he wants to cut down the wage bill and they have received huge interest from Juventus and Valencia as they want to sign Hernandez.
Even if Hernandez does remain being a player of Manchester United, his time at the Premier League club seems to be reaching its last few years or maybe even months as Wayne Rooney and Van Persie are undoubtedly the main attacking stars of the club and Louis van Gaal has already told the Mexican forward that he has no future at all at Old Trafford.
Ever since Javier Hernandez made his move to Old Trafford and joined Manchester United, he has faced consistent problems season after season trying to make an impact with the first team and get guaranteed playing time. The Mexican has had to settle with a place on the sidelines of Manchester United in every single season.
The Mexican attacker has displayed his concerns of only getting a few minutes of playing time on some certain matches; he spoke after a match of Mexico in the 2014 World Cup and revealed some details of his current condition.
“This whole year has been very tough. Players need confidence more than anything else, and I’ve been very short of it. Very few people have shown faith in me over this past year. I’d like to dedicate this to my grandfather, who’s about to turn 85 but has still made the effort to be here. It’s for all those who’ve been with me in the good times and the bad, like my wife and my family. They know that I’m always happy to work hardest during the toughest times.” Chicharito Hernandez said.
Louis van Gaal is the new coach of Manchester United and the Dutch manager will be a huge factor that can determine whether or not Javier Hernandez remains as a player of Manchester United for another season or if he would like to cash in on the Mexican forward.
If Hernandez does leave Old Trafford, he has options of moving to Arsenal as Arsene Wenger is an admirer of the Mexican player or instead he can be transferred to Tottenham at White Hart Lane as it’s another club which has also shown interest in signing him and in either of those clubs, his chances of getting more playing time are significantly higher than in Old Trafford where Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie are the undisputed stars of the team.
Atletico Madrid are now almost certain to sell Diego Costa even if the club managed to win the Champions League and the league title this season. This is because the club of their size cannot afford to keep a player of Costa’s stature simply because the player’s wage demands will be out of the reach for the club. As a result, he is set to leave to potential destinations like Chelsea, where he could be earning around £ 200,000 per week. This would leave a major void in the Atletico Madrid attack and they are reportedly planning to fill this with the signing of Javier Hernandez from Manchester United.
The Mexican has grown frustrated due to lack of regular playing time at the club. The final straw for the 25-year-old came in the second leg Champions League quarter-final match against Bayern Munich. Even though he was fully fit for this encounter, manager David Moyes decided to give painkilling injections for an unfit Wayne Rooney and use them instead. Rooney did not have the best of games, as he squandered two great opportunities that ultimately left United being knocked out of the competition after a 4-2 defeat on aggregate.
Hernandez had a couple of weeks ago that he was unhappy with the game time he has been getting at United this season. This being a World Cup year has also made him grow impatient. Even though Mexico do not have much recognised stars up front, Hernandez says that competition for places has been increasing within the national team and that he has to play regularly in order to convince the national team boss to pick him. Mexico are expected to have a tough World Cup after only managing to narrowly qualify for the competition through the play-offs – by beating minnows New Zealand.
