Given Manchester United’s struggles under Louis van Gaal this season, the fact Javier Hernandez is a goalscoring sensation in the Bundesliga won’t make things any easier. However, you’d imagine there are a lot of the Red Devils faithful going: “I told you so” in relation to believing that United should’ve kept hold of their ‘Little Pea’.

With Bayern Munich now rumoured to be interested in the striker, according to, it certainly raises the question as to whether LvG was a bit hasty in offloading Chicharito.


Surely someone at United would’ve gone: “Hang on! He can’t get in our side but Real Madrid, a club much bigger than us in all aspects, wants him. Maybe he is half decent then!”

Given the fact that Bayern Munich, a team that probably makes up one of the top three in world football, now see value in Hernandez highlights the forward’s quality.

The likes of Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial, although impressing, the raw talents of the pair could’ve been aided a lot by the experience of Hernandez.

“Patience, young grasshopper”



Hernandez made 157 appearances in all competitions for United, notching 59 goals in the process. That’s not a record to be sniffed at but when you consider that the striker started just 80 of those games and you realise just how bloody clinical he was!

Side note: Can everyone start managing the clubs they’re being paid to please. Ancelotti isn’t at Bayern Munich yet, Guardiola hasn’t joined Manchester City and you just know that Jose Mourinho is already making changes at Manchester United.
