Manchester United boss to block January departure

Javier Hernandez

Punters have started to arrive in the Football Transfer Tavern ahead of the next set of Champions League fixtures tonight.

Slow starting Manchester United host Real Sociedad and one player who could get a chance is out of favour forward Javier Hernandez.

Now Hannah Duncan from Metro reports that Moyes has revealed before the game that Red Devils striker Hernandez will not sold during the January transfer window.

Speculation in the tavern continues to suggest that the 25-year-old Mexican international could soon be on his way out of Old Trafford with Tottenham and Atletico Madrid linked with him in recent weeks.

Hernandez has started just two matches in all competitions under Moyes this term but despite his lack of games, the former Everton boss still believes that the clinical finisher will get a chance to shine over the coming months.

“It [Hernandez’s exit] is not a question for now,’ said Moyes. ‘He will play a lot of games before the end of the season.”

However a lack of first team involvement, especially in a World Cup year, could see Hernandez himself looking for a possible move away although he has already reportedly rejected a move to La Liga outfit Valencia over the summer.

The Mexican has netted 51 times in his 121 matches for the Red Devils but he has always found regular football hard to come by and he currently remains behind Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck in United’s striking pecking order.

Is Moyes right to keep hold of the Mexican international? Let us know your thoughts below.
