United poacher Javier Hernandez has rejected an approach made by La Liga side Valencia, in order to fight for a place in the Manchester United team, according to the players agent. Chicharito was in and out of the starting line-up last term, but still managed to notch up an impressive 18 goals in all competitions.
The Mexican striker probably finds himself fourth in the pecking order at the moment, with Van Persie, Welbeck and Rooney all ahead of him, but its excellent to see that Hernandez wants to fight for his place. Since his arrival the 25-year old has shown a desire and a willingness to play for the club, which immediately led to him becoming a fan favourite.
His agent, Eduardo Hernandez stated:
“Of course he wants to play more, to have more minutes, to participate more, but he wants to do it at United, he wants to defend the title and go far in the Champions League.
“The interest from Valencia was real. He had the chance to speak with the sporting director [Braulio Vazquez] but Javier, I reiterate, wants to stay at Manchester United, this is the challenge.
“He was very grateful to Valencia and the other clubs who called him.
If Chicharito keeps working hard, he’ll get his chance. The hitman is usually superb off the bench and if he can notch a couple of important goals, he’ll certainly work his way into Moyes’ plans.
