Chicharito celebrates yet another goal

Chicharito celebrates yet another goal

Chicharito will be offered a new contract by United before the start of the season according to reports.

The Independent notes:

“Javier Hernandez is expected to be rewarded for his extraordinary first season at 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 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 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 – 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 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.
