Remember the times when Manchester United shattered Arsenal’s dreams of building a league winning team by snatching their captain and the best number 9 in the world back then? Well, United don’t have a league winning team anymore but Arsenal can snatch their most loved player Javier Hernandez who isn’t content with the playing time he’s getting at the club.
Olivier Giroud has been good but not world class and in all fairness to his hard work and not being harsh on him; Javier Hernandez will be an upgrade over him. Hernandez has been fairly honest and quiet with how United are treating him but his celebrations against Aston Villa other day suggested otherwise that he isn’t happy.
Arteta, who has little more than 12 months remaining on his contract, retains a close relationship with United manager David Moyes, his former mentor at Everton.
The north London outfit hope to capitalize on the duo’s friendship and the Red Devils’ urgent search for midfield reinforcements by including the 32-year-old in their offer for Hernandez.
The 25-year-old is behind strikers Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck at Old Trafford and has failed to replicate the goal scoring touch he demonstrated in the 2010/11 campaign, which saw him notch 20 goals.
