The Mexican international has been under transfer speculation since Louis van Gaal took over as manager last season. The player was offloaded to Real Madrid on loan and has showed his class in the limited chances he got at Bernabeu.


The player has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer as the likes of Liverpool and West Ham are interested to sign him. Javier was said to be unsuitable to van Gaal’s system earlier but the manager has given the striker another chance.

With the departure of Robin van Persie, Rooney and Wilson are the only recognizable striekrs left in the squad which prompted van Gaal to keep the player in their roster for next season.
