Louis Van Gaal Confirms South American Striker Will Play For United Next Season

Louis van Gaal has left the door open to Mexican striker, Javier Hernandez, who is set to rejoin the rest of the team on July 25th. However, this is subject to the player being able to prove himself worthy of being part of the team as they prepare for next season.

The player, who has had a couple of not-so good seasons, spent the whole of last season on loan to Real Madrid, scoring one goal in the Champions League. Feelers at the club expected him to make the loan deal permanent or at least get another club; but it appears things are about to change as the Dutchman appears to have given the Mexican international a ray of hope per his future with the Red Devils.

After letting Robin Van Persie leave the club this summer, it is obvious that the club badly needs a new striker to complement the efforts of Wayne Rooney. However, leaving the door open for the return of a player who struggled to make an impact in the club for a couple of seasons, may not be the best decision.

Van Gaal’s decision to recall the striker could mean the club is no longer going to sign a new striker before the end of the window, which might not go down well with fans of the club.

With Van Persie and Radamel Falcao departing the club this summer, it remains to be seen if the Dutchman is going to leave the task of scoring goals on the shoulders of Wayne Rooney and Hernandez.

The question is: what if Wayne Rooney gets injured during the course of the season?
