Former Manchester United Coach Talks Up Chicarito Exit, On His Way To Arsenal?

Chicharito-HernándezFormer Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen has told the club that Javier Hernandez could leave if he continues to be a bit-part player at Old Trafford.

The Mexican striker is used primarily as back-up to Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck in the Manchester United set-up, reports have it that Arsenal could be set to make a winter move for the forward.

Arsenal are keen to strengthen their attacking options when the transfer window opens in January, with Olivier Giroud as the only top notch striker in the fould, the duo of Bendtner and Park are not really rated by Wenger.

“If Hernandez comes to an age where he thinks he wants regular football and he can get into another top team in the Premier League then I can see him considering [leaving],” Meulensteen told talkSPORT.

“With Hernandez, having Robin van Persie in that position mean sometimes you will fall short. That’s why it’s so important that, at the right time, you mix up the combinations and that all these players feel like they contribute to the competitions that you play in.

“Chicharito Hernandez is a fantastic striker. Wherever he pops up he will score goals.”

Hernandez recently hinted at an exit from the club when he retweeted a link to a news story from Sky Sports that centred around him leaving United. Wenger has played down reports of a move for a new striker in the winter window but Arsenal’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis has fuelled the rumour.

‘We will see where Arsenal will be in January and whether or not the club will invest in another forward,’

If this report is anything to go by, the Gunners might just be singing a new forward in the January and the Mexican might just be the man. Arsenal could be facing their potential target tomorrow when they play Manchester United at the Old Trafford. Before making a move to sign him in January, Arsenal must first stop him tomorrow.
