The Daily Mail have some interesting news for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Manchester United could well be set to keep Javier Hernandez.
As our landlord points out, it would probably be more accurate to say that the club are now unwilling to let the striker leave.
Hernandez has struggled to get first team action this term and has made no secret of the fact that he would consider opportunities elsewhere.
The Mexican forward will now have to remain at Old Trafford, at least until the summer, as manager David Moyes has become increasingly concerned over the fitness of Robin van Persie.
The Dutchman was the star of the show last season, yet rumours of discontent with new manager Moyes’ training methods will not go away.
An injury to the forward has hardly helped matters, and now it is all hands on deck at the club.
This of course leaves a fair few clubs unhappy, with the likes of Arsenal and also high flying La Liga side Atletico Madrid keen on bringing Hernandez in to add to their firepower up top.
Moyes has endured increasing pressure at the club, yet has managed to steer the Red Devils into the Capital One Cup semi finals, setting up a potential mouth-watering clash with rivals Manchester City in the final.
Will Hernandez be forced to stay at the club? Let us know your thoughts below.
