The Independent notes:
“Javier Hernandez is expected to be rewarded for his extraordinary first season at Manchester United with a new deal.
“The Mexican’s 25 goals in 40 games for United made him arguably the buy of last summer, and after rewarding Chris Smalling with a new five-year deal yesterday – a response to the way he exceeded his manager’s expectations – United are ready to place Hernandez next in line for an improved contract.
“The 23-year-old has been given a break after his involvement for his country in the Gold Cup and will not head out on the pre-season tour with the majority of United’s players next week. Smalling has been given a new five-year deal.”
The Telegraph reports:
“The 23 year-old has already been linked with Real Madrid – speculation rejected by his representatives – since the end of last season and, although there are no concerns within Old Trafford of ‘Chicharito’ being lured away by a rival club, United’s policy of recognising the progress of emerging stars is set to see him rewarded with a pay rise and extended deal.
“A £7 million signing from Chivas de Guadalajara, Hernandez’s current four-year deal is understood to be structured to ensure renegotiation on the basis of appearances, with Sir Alex Ferguson admitting recently that the youngster exceeded all expectations last season.”
Securing Chicharito on a long term deal is a total no-brainer for a player who could already arguably walk into any side in the world.
With a new batch of young signings at United there’s every reason to feel very optimistic for the long term future of the club and Chicharito committing to a longer deal would only add to that optimism.
Rightly so. The best buy of last year, and perhaps Fergie’s best ever signing. All you need to know – He’s scored approximately 9 times as many goals per appearance as Fernando Torres and cost about a seventh of the price. Who’d you rather have in your team? I know who I’d have. Chicharito hands down.
Every goal he scores is celebrated like it is his first. I love this guy…he plays from the heart and with a smile on his face and gives us options. More importantly, he plays with speed and doesn’t slow our play down.
He worth more than carrick.place him on £70,000.
don’t rush him with a so called improved contract it’s a way to cheat young players he might happens to be the world best striker after just 3 seasons and yet with a very low so called improved contract little pea wait a season more then you’ll have a higher negotiating power…. MY BLOOD IS RED
U ar right @detoy 9ice coment.
He’s nt right.if little pea demanded 100 per week later won’t utd give him.70 is still ok 4 d young best striker in d world 4 now.saf pls after wesley go 4 diarra & send dat useless carrick to exile.RED 4 LIFE
this is a player who would do morethan what he has done.chicharito cary go.
