The Manchester United striker's agent says the club isn't planning on letting the Mexico star leave any time soon.
Manchester United has received interest and offers for striker Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez ahead of the January transfer window, but the club is adamant the Mexican will not be going anywhere.
The player’s agent Eduardo Hernandez told reporters in Mexico City on Wednesday that he’d met with Manchester United 10 days ago to discuss Hernandez’s future.
“They confirmed that there has been interest from some European clubs, but that they aren’t planning to let him go,” stated the agent.
Rumors over Chicharito’s future have increased in recent weeks and months due to his lack of playing time for Manchester United, with next summer’s World Cup looming and the 25-year-old’s starting place in the Mexican national team far from secure.
“They are aware that he hasn’t played much, but little by little he’ll integrate more,” said Hernandez.
The agent revealed that Manchester United told him the club had received a substantial financial offer for Chicharito, but wouldn’t tell him from whom, in order to not unsettle the former Chivas player.
Hernandez has started just three of Manchester United’s 16 Premier League games this season and was on the bench in the Red Devils’ 2-0 win in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, although he did come on in the 58th minute and assist Ashley Young’s opening goal.
Nevertheless, Hernandez is backing his client to win over David Moyes and succeed with the Premier League champion.
“He is one of the most professional players out there, his professionalism is astonishing,” he said. “I’ve no doubt Javier has an angel and he’s going to achieve (at Manchester United).”
