There has been talk of Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez leaving the club at the end of the season due to lack of playing time, in letting him go Manchester United will be making a huge mistake.

The little Mexican is a good player in the air and with his feet, so here is why the mighty Red Devils need to keep him.

He's prolific, the Mexican has scored 35 goals in 92 games for United, and, for a 3rd choice striker, that isn't bad. The Mexican is a goal poacher of the highest calibre. Always sniffing for a chance and constantly on the move in the penalty area, Hernandez has made the transition from Mexican football to the Premier League look as easy as his trademark tap in from four yards. If he got more playing time, he could be one of the leagues most prolific strikers. 

He's 25, he's still got years ahead of him to improve, and he has been improving at United since he joined in 2010, Chicharito is not the first choice striker but with van Persie nearing 31 and Welbeck's form suffering he could well be on the United team sheet soon. He is a big player with a future ahead of him so it would be stupid to not play him or sell him.

He's at his prime, he is at the prime of his career and has never been better, to sell him now would be like Liverpool selling Sturridge, if played he could strike up a lethal partnership with fellow strike partner Wayne Rooney. Also he is lethal with his head and his feet in and outside the 18-yard box.
