Javier Hernandez's long-term future remains uncertain, according to the player's agent.
As reported by the Standard, the striker, who is currently on loan at Spanish giants Real Madrid from Manchester United, has struggled for opportunities under Carlo Ancelotti at the Bernabeu this season.
Hernandez to fight
His agent, however, has insisted that the Mexican is prepared to fight for his place in La Liga, but isn't sure whether the club will take up their option to sign him on a permanent deal next summer.
And, if Real fail to secure the player's services for the long-term, then the player's agent will attempt to speak with the Manchester United board in order to find out what the future for his client holds.
Eduardo Hernandez is quoted as saying by AS: "Sometimes the media speculate too much and assume situations. A few days ago I was with the Real Madrid directors and Javier.

"He will not leave the club [in January]. Yes, he is eager to play more minutes but he knows that hard work will open up more opportunities. He has his future ahead of him.
"If Madrid do not exercise the option to buy it will not be until the end of the season. In any case, we have to consult with the board of Manchester United to know what the future holds for Chicharito [Hernandez].
"Real Madrid are a team full of impressive players and obviously to earn a spot is difficult, but Javier has a great quality in working hard, like he has since the first day, and this is his merit."
It remains to be seen as to whether Real complete a deal for Chicharito in the summer of 2015, but he could yet return to Old Trafford under Louis van Gaal.
Manchester United, however, have an array of attacking talent already at the club, with the likes of Radamel Falcao, Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and James Wilson all starring under the new regime.
Hernandez, then, may even have to look elsewhere in the summer transfer window in an attempt to make a fresh start.
