Manchester United striker may consider future - Meulensteen

Ex-Manchester United assistant Rene Meulensteen believes striker Javier Hernandez may consider his future at the club, reports talkSPORT.

Hernandez, who has been linked with Premier League sides Arsenal and Tottenham, struggles to gain a regular place in the side at Old Trafford, with the likes of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney around. 

And, despite Meulensteen admitting it's hard for any player to leave the Theatre of Dreams, the former United assistant believes the striker may opt for regular first-team future in the future.

Hernandez has been in impressive goal-scoring form when given the opportunity to shine at United so far this season, but failed to strike in the Red Devils' last fixture against Real Sociedad in the Champions League in mid-week. 

Speaking to Drive Time, Meulensteen said: “Chicharito Hernandez is a fantastic striker. Wherever he pops up he will score goals.

“With Hernandez, having Robin van Persie in that position mean sometimes you will fall short. That’s why it’s so important that, at the right time, you mix up the combinations and that all these players feel like they contribute to the competitions that you play in.

“If Hernandez comes to an age where he thinks he wants regular football and he can get into another top team in the Premier League then I can see him considering it, but it’s not easy leaving Manchester United.”

It's expected Hernandez will drop to the bench for David Moyes' side as they play host to Premier League leaders Arsenal tomorrow as United look set to welcome former Gunner Robin van Persie back into the starting XI.
