Having came off the bench, Mexican striker Javier Hernandez scored a crucial goal against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge which helped his club bid to survive in the top tier.
Despite the draw, the confidence given was a huge boost in their quest to beat the drop. Following the 3-0 away win against a dire Southampton side, the latest result will no doubt be a massive effect in the dressing room and Hernandez has been given positive feedback from his manager and pundits alike for his benefaction within the squad.
However, his help doesn’t quite add up to the fact that he has an uncertain future at London Stadium owing to the fact that the former Manchester United star recently admitted that there were offers for him to leave in January and even went on to hint that if situations fail to materialise, he could be on the move in the summer.
His demands for regular football doesn’t come as a surprise given that he’s a proven goalscorer on the international stage, as well as domestic. According to this source, Hernandez will be open to offers and will evaluate his future with the Hammers.
The London club have been left with a massive decision in the summer. David Moyes – clearly wanting “Chicharito” (little pea) not to leave has spoken highly of the 29-year-old, dubbing him as a “game changer”, but yet cannot offer a regular starting place, but his instinctive poacher style makes Moyes scratch his head over a potential regular start for the two-time Premier League winner.
Furthermore, Hernandez – earning around £140,000 p/w, is one of the highest earners at the club, and the sale will free up wages for potential signatures, as well as recoup a significant value from his transfer.
Are you hoping Javier Hernandez stays for another season? If so, how will he improve next season?
