Memphis Depay and Javier Hernandez looked to be enjoying themselves as they were put through their paces in Manchester United training on Monday. However, Harry Kane’s emergence out of the blue has alleviated the need for Tottenham to invest in a first choice striker to lead the line, but need quality replacements to take the load off Kane, who has been an asset for the club in the recently concluded campaign.
Javier Hernandez didn’t make a brilliant impression on his loan season at Real Madrid, starting only 6 games.
Louis van Gaal’s squad worked on their fitness levels in California as they prepared for their final pre-season friendly of their US tour against Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday.
However, with van Gaal deciding against turning the Colombian international’s loan spell into a permanent one [via Guardian Sport] and the departure of Robin van Persie to Fenerbahce earlier in the summer [via BBC Sport], Hernandez is one of just three recognized centre-forwards left at the club.
Chicharito had been late to join the squad after his involvement at the Copa America for Mexico.
The striker himself has shown an interest in proving himself at Old Trafford and forcing his way back into the Dutchman’s plans for the new season. He is also the captain of the team so he shall play a lot of times in the striker’s position.
