Louis Van Gaal is enjoying a really hard season in charge at Old Trafford and perhaps the worse decision made by him last summer was to sell Javier Hernandez. The Mexican has scored 19 goals in 21 game and is getting scouted by all the major teams around Europe, including Arsenal and Chelsea.
However, Chicharito (fondly known) is certain to fend off any interest for a return to the Premier League. Hernandez always expressed his love and admiration for Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson.
He has always maintained the stance of playing only for United in the Premier League. Back in the summer, he had offers from Tottenham and West Ham, however, he decided to chose Bayer Leverkusen and the main reason was to avoid playing against Manchester United.
That is why, despite the strong interest, Chelsea and Arsenal must look elsewhere for a striker in January or in the summer. Chicharito is happily settled in Bundesliga and making another move right now would be suicidal for his career.
Chelsea and Arsenal have been linked with a move for Jackson Martinez, Antoine Griezmann and Gonzalo Higuain in the summer. Given the kind of season both London giants have had, they need to strengthen their squad for different reasons.
Arsenal have seen how close they are to winning to league and if they strengthen their squad little further, there will be no stopping them. As for Chelsea, 2015/16 season has been a real nightmare and that is why fresh faces are key for them to have a better start next season.
