Javier Hernandez Set to Stay at Manchester United

Javier Hernandez has no intentions of leaving Manchester United this summer, according to his agent.

The 25-year-old has fallen down the pecking order following the introduction of Robin Van Persie last season, however his agent maintains that he is more than happy at the club.

The front man’s representative, Eduardo Hernandez states, “He is very happy at Manchester United. Javier has been there three years and has won the league twice. Not many can say they have achieved that.” (quote via fox sports)

Chicharito made fewer Premier League appearances than Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck during his sides reclaiming of the title. However the Mexican still managed to rack up 10 goals in 22 league games.

This productivity was reported to have attracted interest from a number of high profile clubs including Real Madrid and Italian giants Juventus. However he looks set to stay in Manchester for another season, which will surely delight incoming manager David Moyes.

In three seasons with United, Hernandez has made 117 appearances and scored a solid 50 goals. His international resume is even more impressive, scoring 32 times in just 47 appearances.

Many believe that the lack of first team opportunities has unsettled the striker, however the statement by his agent has proven to quell such ideas.

Hernandez has always maintained a positive attitude while at United, with former boss Sir Alex Ferguson always quick to complement the young forwards patients and enthusiasm for the game.

A quote from Chicharito from midway through last season sums up his views on being a team player at a club where competition for places is fierce.

“If you ask all the players in the world, they’re always going to tell you that they want to start every game. You have to be aware of the other players. There are five strikers here, they want to be part of the game and the only thing I need to prove in one minute or in 90 minutes is that I want to play.” (quote via manutd.com)
