Javier Hernández appears to be casting doubt over his Manchester United future after the forward retweeted a report quoting Carlos Vela, his close friend and team-mate in the Mexico national team, saying the striker will be forced to consider leaving the Old Trafford club if he does not play more regularly.
Hernandez, whose verified Twitter account is @ch14_, added no comment to the message, but the decision to spread it to a wider audience will inevitably be interpreted as an endorsement of Vela’s sentiments.

Vela, who will be in the Real Sociedad team who face United in the Champions League on Tuesday night, said: “If he plays regularly he will score, so I don’t totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games. If he doesn’t play regularly he will need to think about leaving. You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs – but if he is not given the chance there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him.”
The striker was part of David Moyes’s squad at Fulham on Saturday but remained an unused substitute. Moyes insisted he would continue to use all the players at his disposal while he evaluates his squad, although the form of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney this weekend suggests opportunities up front will be limited, particularly after the United manager described the partnership as potentially the best in the world last week.
