Manchester United striker “not sure” about future



Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, who is currently plying his trade in Spain with Real Madrid on a season long loan, says he wants “assurances” about his future for whichever club plays next season.

Hernandez, 26, joined Real Madrid on loan this season, after failing to get regular game time in recent years at Manchester United, but but he has since made one start and five substitute appearances for Carlo Ancelotti’s side. 

“I am fully concentrated on Real Madrid at the moment,” Hernandez said in the Daily Mail (via ESPN).

“We have a big chance to have a really successful season — and when you are fighting for La Liga and the Champions League it is not sensible to concentrate on anybody else.

“I am not sure what will happen in the summer yet — but whatever happens I need guarantees. I am 26 now — in the summer I will be 27 — I must be at a club where I am going to be playing regularly.

“Wherever I am playing next season — I will make sure I have those sort of assurances.”

Hernandez became the first Mexican player to have played for Manchester United, when he joined from Guadalajara in 2010. The striker has scored 37 Premier League goals from 49 starts and 53 substitute appearances.

The Mexico international could feature for Real Madrid in their upcoming Copa Del Rey meeting with UD Cornella, where he scored 4-1 in the first leg.
