United Striker's Agent Says Time Not Right for Real Madrid Move
By Adrian Back | March 1, 2013 5:53 AM EST
Reports had emerged suggesting that the Spanish giants would be looking to find a more prolific finisher after a poor season from both Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema, with neither forward reaching double figures in the league.
This had led to suggestions that Hernandez could be the man to fire Real Madrid back to competing for the league title but these suggestions have been quashed by the agent of the Manchester United forward.
"Javier is thinking about his season in United. We are both not thinking about the market rumours," Eduardo Hernandez told ESPN Radio, as reported in the Express.
"It's true that in Manchester there is a lot of competition but the boy has always played in a good way. For this reason I think that this isn't the right moment to leave."
Chicharito has found it difficult to secure a regular place in the United first team due to the superb performances of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. With Danny Welbeck also pushing for a place in the starting XI, the 24-year-old has often found himself on the bench.
However, Hernandez has excelled when called upon and has scored eight league goals and 15 in all competitions to further demonstrate how lethal he can be in front of goal.
The striker is in his third season with Manchester United and is fast closing in on reaching 50 goals in all competitions, an impressive statistic considering the competition he faces for a place in the first team at Old Trafford.
Hernandez may well have a chance to further his impressive record against Real Madrid when the two sides meet in the second leg of the last-16 Champions League tie that is in the balance after a 1-1 draw in Spaiin.
