Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has claimed he is more than willing to stay in the club and battle for a starting spot despite the club’s efforts to sign another forward.

Despite netting 16 goals in all appearances for his club this season, the Mexican striker has become the fourth choice striker for United falling behind summer signing Robin van Persie, England international Wayne Rooney and the emerging Danny Welbeck.

It has also been reported that Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to sign Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao - a move which would push Hernandez further down the pecking-order.

However, despite his lack of first team action the Mexican has claimed that he is happy to stay in Manchester and fight for a first team place.

The Daily Mail reported him saying: “All the players in the world want to start every single game.

“Of course I would love to start more often but I will keep the same attitude. When the gaffer wants me on the bench or the starting line-up I will do my best. My attitude is going to be very good because I want to respect the club, my team-mates and the coach.

"I am happy to be at this club." 

However, it is hard to see where Hernandez will fit in to a system if Ferguson manages to get the Columbian hitman this summer. It has also been reported that Hernandez may be offered to Atletico in a player-plus-cash exchange.

Given his goal scoring record and his performances, perhaps the manager should look to play him more often in the final stages of the season. Club top scorer Robin Van Persie has not scored in his past ten league games and sharing the goal scoring duties to the Mexican could do no harm.

Hernandez has proven to be a quality player during his time at Manchester United and would have shortage of suitors. He brings another dimension to the team which only adds to their potency in front of goal. Losing him would be a big loss and fans can only hope that the Reds manager shares the same sentiment.
