Javier Hernandez: May have to think about leaving United, says Carlos Vela

Javier Hernandez: May have to think about leaving United, says Carlos Vela

Vela knows Hernandez well and will come up against his compatriot when Real Sociedad take on Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

He is convinced that Hernandez has the ability to flourish at Old Trafford but reckons he may think about leaving if he continues to find himself down the pecking order.

"Javier is my good friend - and I hope he gets lots of chances this season at Manchester United," Vela, who spent seven years at Arsenal without ever establishing himself, told The People.

"He is one of the best finishers in England and deserves chances under the new coach.

"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.

"You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs - but if he is not given the chance there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him."

Sociedad are bottom of Champions League Group A after losing their first three games and Vela knows they have little chance of progressing in the competition, but he would love to claim the scalp of United.

He said: "We owe it to our fans to get a good result at home, and to beat Manchester United would be for them as much as for us.

"We understand it is nearly impossible for us to progress, but beating a team like United can really get our season going."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
