Javier Hernandez has hinted he could be on the move once the January transfer window re-opens.
Hernandez has started just two of the first 11 games under new manager David Moyes and the competition from Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck could prove to be a too big a challenge for the Mexican international.
"I strive for that [to start more games]," said the 25-year-old, who scored 20 goals in his debut season at United following a £6m move from Chivas Guadalajara in his homeland in 2010.
"I am working towards that - earning a spot as a starter. I know that my performance on the pitch will allow me to achieve that goal someday either here [in Manchester] or elsewhere for any other club.
"I am going on four years here [at Manchester United] and really, like I have always said, I am happy to be able to play for one of the best clubs in the world, doing my best every single day to earn more minutes on the pitch.
"I just need to be given more opportunities to showcase what I can do, because all of us want to be able to contribute our part so this team can win championships."
Chicharito could prove Moyes wrong if the Scott gives him more chances as a starter and he can easily do that with giving a rest to Robin van Persie, who hasn't scored since the match against Bayer Leverkusen on 17th September.
Yet if Moyes doesn't give the Mexican his opportunity, Atletico Madrid could be ready to buy the little striker.
It remains to be seen if Hernandez will upon his hinted exit if he cannot push himself into the first-team, but one can assume that he would not be short of options should be declare his intentions to leave Old Trafford.
