A couple of years ago now, Manchester United sold Javier Hernandez to Bayer Leverkusen. The ‘Little Pea’ was absolutely adored by Reds fans everywhere, and his departure was met with sadness by large portions of the fanbase – purely because he always played his heart out for the badge on his shirt.
Now this week, the man they nicknamed Chicharito has been linked with a sensational return to the Premier League. According to Sky Sports News, West Ham United are in talks with Bayer about the possibility of signing the deadly Mexican forward.
The most surprising part about it? He only has a £13million release clause inserted into his contract, which is surprisingly low for a player of his calibre.
In the two years since leaving Old Trafford, the 29-year-old has found the back of the net an impressive 39 times for his club, hence why Premier League side West Ham have shown an interest.
For me, Jose Mourinho should be right in there trying to lure him back to the Theatre of Dreams. It wasn’t that long ago when our boss was saying how he wouldn’t have sold Hernandez if he was United manager at that time, and we’re in desperate need of a new striker, so surely it makes perfect sense?
This is a player who loves United, enjoys Premier League football and knows where the back of the net is. To me, it seems a no-brainer to bring him back, and what a lift it would be to everyone involved with the club.
