Where next for Javier Hernandez?

Just six months after he came to West Ham, it looks like time’s up for Javier Hernandez as the star is expected to make a sudden break with the London club.

With just four goals since he arrived at London Stadium from Bayer Leverkusen in summer 2017, Hernandez has struggled to get a regular place under the new manager, David Moyes.

Whilst Hernandez’s £130,000 per week salary might put off some smaller clubs, it’s evident that many wealthier sides are keen to sign the Mexican star.

Manchester United are tipped to make a dramatic signing for Hernandez as part of Jose Mourinho’s plans to revamp the side’s attack.

Hernandez spent four successful seasons with Manchester United, and it would be remarkable to see him back at Old Trafford just three years after he left for Real Madrid.

Mourinho has already stated that he is a big fan of Hernandez’s attacking prowess, and the striker would undoubtedly provide plenty of support for the team’s star goalscorer, Romelu Lukaku.

But with other players like Jamie Vardy being tipped for a move to Old Trafford, it’s evident that the future is still uncertain for Hernandez.

There are persistent rumours that the Mexican ace could even be set to make a move across the Atlantic Ocean. The new MLS club, Los Angeles FC, have repeatedly stated that Hernandez would be the perfect player to join the side as a result of the huge Mexican population of the city.

The Los Angeles club is managed by ex-Swansea City manager, Bob Bradley, who has already managed to sign the Mexican star, Carlos Vela. And with other top players like Diego Rossi, Benny Feilhaber, Laurent Ciman and Walker Zimmerman in the side, it’s clear that this would be an attractive offer for Hernandez.

But West Ham will clearly be keen to recoup the massive £16 million that they paid for Hernandez less than a year ago. And their manager, David Moyes, has repeatedly stated how he is unwilling to give up on the striker just yet.

Although Hernandez has struggled to find his place in the West Ham team, he’s clearly an important asset for Moyes who has helped the side escape the relegation zone.

But if West Ham want to continue to get some good tips at, they will need to strengthen the overall side, and so any money earned from a Hernandez sale would be invaluable for this cash-strapped team.

Hernandez would clearly be keen to find a club who are more receptive to his playing talents, and the 29-year old star has the experience necessary to bolster the attacking strength of any team. He suffered plenty of withering criticisms from Hammers fans after a poor performance in their dismal FA Cup match with Shrewsbury Town, and now is the perfect time to try and prove his critics wrong.

But whether Hernandez stays at the London Stadium, or makes another multi-million pound move to Manchester United or Los Angeles FC, it’s clear that these are difficult times for the Mexican star.
