Bayer Leverkusen has been so far firm in their stance denying any report suggesting Javier Hernandez is up for sale but the Mexican attacker has now opened a door on a potential summer move.
Arsenal was heavily linked with the former Manchester United striker but according to the rules of FIFA, even if Arsenal somehow manages to sign the striker this month, he will not be able to feature for the Gunners because of the restrictions. The FIFA regulations allow a player to be registered in maximum three clubs in a season. He will be officially eligible to play for just two clubs and Hermandez has already donned Untied and Leverkusen jersey this season.
That means Arsenal and other top European clubs have a chance to sign him in the summer and if the Mexican hitman can maintain his current form, he will be valued worth 25 million according to some reports. The 28-year-old striker was a bargain buy for Leverkusen at 8 million and the German club may be lured at the end of this season to let him go but Chicharito.
He has already scored 19 goals for the German side since his arrival at Bundesliga. Ironically, the Old Trafford misfit was humiliated by United boss Louis van Gaal claiming that the Mexican had only one percent chance of playing in the United first eleven. This forced him to take the ultimate decision of moving to Bayer Leverkusen and life has never been better for the lethal striker rediscovering his form finally.
However, speaking in Orlando during his club’s winter break in the US, Javier Hernandez has opened the door to a potential summer move, hinting that nothing is certain.
“We’ll see you never know what happens.
“You look at my last three years in which I have played for Real Madrid, Manchester United and now Leverkusen It is my goal now. to play a very good second half.
I’m glad and happy to be part of this great club. In this sport, it does not matter whether you sign a contract for ten years or ten times prolong by one year. In six months, everything can again differently be.
“Or you play ten years for the club. “
Chicharito’s goal-scoring stint at Bayer Leverkusen has amazed everybody. The former United striker has netted seven times in his last five games, including a stunning hat-trick against Borussia Monchengladbach, which eventually voted him Bundesliga’s best in November and December. The Mexican ace, who unfortunately didn’t fit into LvG’s philosophy, has now also been awarded back to back Bundesliga Player of the Month prize in November and December.
