Javier Hernandez could never really manage on securing a regular start at Old Trafford as he made over 100 league appearances for Manchester United in 5 seasons which is a fairly good record but you have to take into consideration that most of the time when the Mexican performed in a match he entered the pitch as a substitute player who could only play for a few minutes in certain games.
The Mexican forward was not a very important or key figure for the Premier League club Manchester United as he was just a substitute and back up-option.
On September 1 of 2014, Hernandez signed a season long loan deal with Real Madrid and things haven’t changed much as Hernandez continues being a substitute player more than anything else. He is mostly being used as a back-up option for the Frenchman KarimBenzema.
Even though Hernandez is just a substitute figure in Real Madrid, the Mexican forward displayed his intention of wanting to play with Real Madrid for the next few years as he wants to transform his loan deal into a permanent contract.
Javier Hernandez revealed his desire to continue playing with Real Madrid for the next few years as the Mexican player told reporters: ‘’They thought I couldn’t help any more at United so we decided by mutual agreement that I would leave. It was difficult, although I had offers from other teams, but when I got the opportunity to come to Real Madrid I didn’t hesitate’’
‘’It was the toughest challenge I was offered and the one that gave me the least chances of first-team football, but these are the challenges I like and the ones I’ve worked for all my life. I dreamed of being here. I have the talent and I’ll work hard to show I belong at such a great institution. I hope some positive things happen, both to the club and myself’’
It still remains unsure as if Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti is interested or even considering on signing Javier Hernandez on a permanent deal as the Spanish club is being linked with a few attacking players that could entirely replace Javier Hernandez.
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.
