Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez has apparently hinted at an Old Trafford exit after re-tweeting a message suggesting he should leave the club on Twitter.

As reported by the Daily Telegraph, Spurs target Hernandez retweeted a Sky Sports story carrying quotes from Carlos Vela, a teammate of the Manchester United star with the national side, Mexico.

Vela said Hernandez - who has been linked with Tottenham recently - would have to consider his future at Old Trafford if he does not play regularly. The United forward retweeted the message on his verified Twitter account to his 2.5 million followers.

Vela, who faces United in the Champions League with Real Sociedad this week, said: "If he plays regularly he will score, so I don't totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games.

"If he doesn't play regularly he will need to think about leaving. You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs - but if he is not given the chance there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him."

The Mexican international was an unused substitute as Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney fired United to a 3-1 away victory over Fulham at the weekend.

The two United forwards were superb at Craven Cottage, serving to reinforce the difficult situation Hernandez finds himself in.

The 25-year-old striker has scored four goals this season despite limited opportunities - three of the strikes have come in the Capital One Cup.

He was linked with a move away from Old Trafford earlier this season, with Spanish side Atletico Madrid and Tottenham thought to be interested.

Spurs duo Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe could both leave White Hart Lane in January, opening the door for a potential move for £15m-rated Hernandez.
