Manchester United manager David Moyes insists that Javier Hernandez still remains in his plans, after the Mexico international's future was cast into doubt.
Chicarito has just made one Premier League start this season, and later appeared to support the idea of a move away from the Red Devils, after retweeting compatriot Carlos Vela's suggestion that he should leave.
The striker has been in decent form of late, netting three times in his last two outings. However the forward could become disillusioned with his future at the club, should he continue to remain on the bench.
Moyes told Sky Sports: “We need Javier Hernandez; he’s very good for us.
“He’s scored a lot of goals over the last few years and continues to do so, so we’ll continue to use him.”
Carlos Vela's comments on Hernandez were: “He is one of the best finishers in England and deserves chances under the new coach.
“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.”
It's not the first time that the striker has been linked with a move away from United, currently both Arsenal and Tottenham being linked with a January swoop the Mexican.
With the World Cup coming up, the forward will be looking to gain as much playing time as possible. But should Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie continue their fine form, it will be even less likely that he'll get what he needs in Manchester.
