Hernandez: I’m still a Manchester United player

Javier Hernandez seems a tad overly confident in himself claiming that Real Madrid, who have already refused to make his loan deal permanent, ‘will have to fight with other clubs’ for his signature.

The Spanish giants decided against taking Chicharito permanently after the Mexican striker spent a season-long loan at the Bernabeu. While it appears pretty evident that they no longer require his service up front, Hernandez scored the winner against rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper AS, Hernandez said:

“Now I’m with Manchester United. Madrid did not activate the option to buy me. If Madrid want me next season they will have to fight with other clubs that want me.

“The first part of the season was very difficult and frustrating. I was not taken into account. In the final part of the season, due to injuries elsewhere, I could respond.”

It’s going to be an interesting summer for Javier Hernandez.

Will Louis van Gaal grant Chicharito one more opportunity at Manchester United?
