Javier Hernandez has gone from spending the majority of his career in the sidelines of Manchester United and Real Madrid to turning into a breakout star in the German outfit Bayer Leverkusen.
The Mexican attacker signed a 3 year long contract with Bayer Leverkusen on August of 2015 for a transfer fee of £7.3 million and this deal was a questionable one as the supporters of Bayer Leverkusen weren’t exactly happy to see their club offloading £7.3 million in a player who was doing nothing more than spending time on the sidelines of big clubs but Javier Hernandez has silenced his doubters as he has consistently been scoring goals for Leverkusen and has earned numerous awards along the way.
Going from being a bench player to a consistent goal-scorer and becoming one of the star players in the team is an accomplishment many performers in the world of football would like to accomplish. Javier Hernandez’s transfer to Bayer Leverkusen has simply been the best decision that he has made to bring his career back to life and this is why he is receiving so much attention from the media.
Hernandez has a contract with Leverkusen which extends until 2018 and when the sporting director of Bayer Leverkusen was asked about the possibility of selling him in this January transfer window, Rudi Voller replied by saying that it’s just not going to happen simply because Hernandez is out of the market.
“Chicharito has played a big part in our success so far, through his style of play, through his goals. That’s why we brought him here. In the first half of the season, everything has worked out fine. It’s easy to reject offers when you are in a position in which you don’t need to sell. We are in such a position. We will keep the players we want to help us achieve our goals.” Bayer Leverkusen’s Rudi Voller said as he shut down any rumors and possible exits involving the Mexican attacker of the team.
Even though Bayer Leverkusen do not want to let go off Hernandez in this winter transfer window, there is a slight possibility of seeing him leaving the German club in the summer when the transfer window re-opens. When Hernandez was asked about him leaving in a few months’ time, he replied by saying: “We will see, everything can be different in six months, or you play at one club for 10 years.”
