Former Manchester United striker, Javier Hernandez, has hinted that he could be leaving Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to north London before he even left the Red Devils and despite Thierry Henry’s criticism of the Mexican for a goal celebration over a ‘tap in’ back in April, I’ve always rated him.

Speaking recently, Chicharito said, “We’ll see, you never know what happens.

“You look at my last three years in which I have played for Real Madrid, Manchester United and now Leverkusen.

“I’m glad and happy to be part of this great club. It is my goal now to play a very good second half [of the season].

“[But] in this sport, it does not matter whether you sign a contract for ten years or ten times to prolong it by one year.

“In six months, everything can again be different.”

Although he rarely got playing time at United, I always felt as if it was a bit of a waste, since his stats were consistently good. In 157 appearances he scored 59 goals and at Leverkusen, he’s scored 19 in 22 – an astonishing return.

Do I believe we’re definitely interested in Chicharito? No.

However, if Danny Welbeck doesn’t bounce back after his long term injury, looking at a back-up striker to Giroud might be sensible. Saying this, if Hernandez wasn’t willing to sit on the bench for United, would he really do so for us?
