Javier Hernandez is surplus to requirements at Man Utd and has returned from a 'frustrating' loan move at Real Madrid in his own words. He has described his time recently as 'being made to feel un-important' as he was restricted to a bit-part player at the Bernabeu, only making 13 starts throughout the whole season. This despite Karim Benzema being the only recognised top striker at the club.
Now seeing as we are crying out for a centre forward with the qualities to consistently bang them in in the Premier League, surely bringing in Chicharito on loan at the very least would be a no-brainer? If there is a club in the PL who make their strikers feel important its NUFC. No other club can compete with the love and worship the Toon Army bestow upon any individual who can find the back of the net.
A season at St James' Park could be the dream scenario for him as a player to feel loved again as well as to find his scoring boots. Whilst we as a club find that marksmen we can rely on to grab us 15+ goals in a season we have severely lacked since the likes of Demba Ba and Loic Remy felt being 3rd choice Chelsea striker was more appealing.
I am certain a man like McClaren would jump at the chance to work with a player with Hernandez's qualities as a talent as well as his hard work who, somewhat despicably, has been cast aside by Van Gaal in favour of the shadow of Falcao and an hastily ageing Van Persie last season. His time at Real didn't exactly show Van Gaal he was wrong so we could take advantage of this and bring in a player who was as sharp as anyone in the PL when he worked under Alex Ferguson.
Good in the air, clinical finisher, pace to burn & available on the cheap...a no-brainer surely?!
.....that's considering Lee Charnley has a brain. What does he actually do anyway...?
