Javier Hernandez has been told to leave Manchester United for the good of his career by Mexican head coach Miguel Herrera.
The prolific striker has been linked with a switch away from Old Trafford all summer following two seasons of infrequent game time.
Chicharito made a big splash when he signed for United in 2010, but after a fine opening to his spell in England he fell behind the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and even Danny Welbeck in the Red Devils’ pecking order which culminated in just six starts in the league last term for the 26-year-old.
Inter Milan and Juventus have been the sides most strongly linked with Hernandez, while Southampton Tottenham and Atletico Madrid are rumoured to be watching his situation.
Herrera – who took the ‘Little Pea’ with him to the World Cup – believes that a move would be best for the forward, with Juve in particular a good option:
“I think [Chicharito] needs to leave,” he told ESPN.
“I think [Juventus] would be a good option for him. When a coach doesn’t want you – when you have your best experience, your best moment with them, and now the coach that wanted you is no longer there – it’s time to move.
“I think there are a lot of opportunities. They are not bad opportunities. If he goes to Juventus that would be an extraordinary team. Without a doubt, it would be a nice change for him. Hopefully he’ll see more minutes.”
