Chicharito won’t leave Madrid

Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez will not be leaving Real Madrid in the January transfer market, according to his agent.

The Mexican striker is on loan at the Santiago Bernabeu from Manchester United but has made just four starts so far this season, only one of them in La Liga.

As a result, it has been suggested Hernandez could cut short his stay in the Spanish capital, something that his representative Eduardo Hernandez says is wide of the mark.

“Sometimes there is too much speculation in the media and they assume things, but he will not be leaving Madrid in January,” he told AS.

“He is keen to get more playing time but knows if he works hard then new opportunities will open up, so he has a bright future ahead of him.

“Real Madrid have a team of fantastic players and obviously it’s hard to get into the starting line-up, but Javier has great attributes and works hard, as he has done from day one, and that’s his quality.”

Hernandez disclosed the 26-year-old would consider his future with the club at the end of the season if Los Blancos refuse to take up their option to buy.

“If they don’t exercise the option to buy it will not be until next summer. Anyway, we have to consult the Manchester United board to find out what Chicharito’s future holds,” he concluded.
