Southampton are reportedly interested in bringing Manchester United’s want away striker Javier Hernandez to St Mary’s as part of the Luke Shaw deal, according to the Daily Mail. Hernandez, 26, managed just four league goals last season.
The Mexican international is all set for an Old Trafford exit after the World Cup due to a lack of playing time, with both Southampton and Inter Milan amongst the interest parties.
The luxury move would obviously be Inter Milan. Hernandez is guaranteed game time and he’ll be playing in an easier league, at one of Europe’s biggest stadiums. A move to Southampton certainly makes more sense though, with Rickie Lambert departing there is a starting berth available to Chicharito, along with the chance to prove to United that it’d be a mistake letting him go.
‘The Little Pea’ has played his part in Manchester United’s history, having a hand in both the 19th and 20th league titles with his superb ability to poach goals in and around the penalty area. However sadly, the time is right, and it feels like its in the best interests of everyone if Javier Hernandez is moved on now while he still has some sell-on value.
