Hernandez encourages speculation

Striker: Javier Hernandez (Manchester United)
73.3pc shooting accuracy - The 'Little Pea' is likely to be one of the casualties of United's summer clear-out, but his eye for accuracy - no striker with 10 shots or more this season has hit the target more regularly - should make him coveted.
Striker: Javier Hernandez (Manchester United) 73.3pc shooting accuracy - The 'Little Pea' is likely to be one of the casualties of United's summer clear-out, but his eye for accuracy - no striker with 10 shots or more this season has hit the target more regularly - should make him coveted.

Manchester United Javier Hernandez sparked speculation over his future at the club on Sunday by apparently retweeting a link to a story in which he was encouraged to leave Old Trafford.

Hernandez's verified Twitter account, @CH14_, posted a link to a story on the Sky Sports website in which his fellow Mexican Carlos Vela said he should look to leave United if he does not start playing more regularly.

The 25-year-old striker came off the bench to score the winner in a 3-2 victory over Stoke a week ago but was an unused substitute for the 3-1 win at Fulham on Saturday.

Hernandez has been in and out of the United side since signing from Guadalajara in 2010 and this season has struggled to earn a start in the league ahead of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

In the article retweeted by Hernandez, Real Sociedad forward Vela said: "If he plays regularly he will score, so I don't totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games.

"If he doesn't play regularly he will need to think about leaving."
