Javier Hernandez’s agent pours cold water on talk of an early Old Trafford return.
The agent of Real Madrid striker Javier Hernandez, who is currently on a season long loan with the La Liga club from Manchester United, has moved to dismiss speculation that a lack of both playing opportunities and form under Carlo Ancelotti in the Spanish capital could lead to him returning to Old Trafford ahead of schedule according to the Daily Star.
Hernandez joined Real this summer after United manager Louis van Gaal decided that he couldn’t guarantee the Mexican international regular first team football with the Red Devils, but opportunities at the Bernabeu have proven to be hard to come by for the former Guadalajara man as a result of the stunning form of some of Ancelotti’s world class attacking talents.
This had led to rumours that Hernandez would be returning to Old Trafford in the January transfer window to beef up United’s attacking options ahead of a potential title challenge, but the player’s agent has confirmed that there will be no return and Hernandez will be looking to fight for his place in La Liga:
“I met with the leaders of the Real a few days ago, Javier will not leave the club.”
“Obviously he would like to have more minutes, but he knows that by working hard he can improve his situation.”
Hernandez’s long term future appears to be as clear as mud, however, with the Star report linking Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool with potential £12 million moves for the player.
