Javier Hernández had a sad ending to his Manchester United career, with a penalty miss against Club Brugge, and little trust from manager Louis van Gaal. Now things indicate that it is the Mexican who gets the last laugh.
After Manchester United (sadly) let the forward go to the German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen, Chicharito has now scored 21 goals in 24 official matches for his new club this season.
That is one goal more than Hernández scored in his best season in the United (he scored 20 goals in 2010/2011 season)
If we take a closer look at the statistics it shows that the Mexican forward has scored an impressive 19 goals the last 16 matches. It is the same as Manchester United have scored in total over the last 16 matches.
This has led to that, among others, Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has become interested in the 27-year-old. The German is apparently interested in signing Hernández back to the Premier League next summer.
However, earlier in January a rumor that Arsenal were interested in signing Chicharito back to England emerged, which led Leverkusen's sporting director Rudi Völler to take action.
- We will not sell him to Arsenal or any other club. He is not for sale! said Völler, according to the Italian website CalcioMercato.
Right now Louis van Gaal probably regrets selling the charismatic Mexican, who should have gotten a few more months in United to show what a brilliant goalgetter he is.
