Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera has urged Javier Hernandez to seal a move away from Manchester United and restart his stuttering career.
Hernandez move to Old Trafford in the summer of 2010 but has never managed to break into the first team. As a result, he has yet to realise the enormous potential he promised when first moving to the Premier League.
Sir Alex Ferguson perennially used the diminutive striker as back-up to Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney. David Moyes didn't get on with him either and now it appears Louis van Gaal cannot find a place for him in his plans.
Instead of sticking around at Old Trafford as an impact player, Herrera has urged Hernandez to leave in search of regular first team football. The Mexico coach pinpointed Juventus as a good destination for Hernandez to head for.
"I think [Hernandez] needs to leave," Herrera told ESPN.
'Juventus would be a good option'
"I think [Juventus] would be a good option for him. When a coach doesn't want you - when you have your best experience, your best moment with them, and now the coach that wanted you is no longer there - it's time to move.
"I think there are a lot of opportunities. They are not bad opportunities. If he goes to Juventus that would be an extraordinary team. Without a doubt, it would be a nice change for him. Hopefully he'll see more minutes."
Set for Old Trafford exit
It seems that Hernandez will not have to force his way out of Old Trafford as Van Gaal looks set to cut the fat from the beef before the transfer window closes. Reports suggest as many as seven players could leave Manchester United this summer as Van Gaal continues to assess who he wants for the season ahead.
Hernandez is widely considered to be one of the players facing an exit with £15 million thought to be enough to seal his signature. Along with Juventus, Tottenham are believed to be eyeing the striker.
However, selling to the Serie A champions could hold huge benefits for Manchester United, who have been chasing the signature of Vidal all summer. Although a swap deal may be too difficult to negotiate, allowing Hernandez to join Juventus would help to establish connections between the two clubs.
