The future of Javier Hernandez at Manchester United is in doubt. The Telegraph says while Hernández signed a five-year contract at Old Trafford last October, the Mexican forward has struggled for form since scoring 20 goals in his debut season at United in 2010-11.

Hernández has subsequently slipped to fourth choice striker, behind Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck, and another disappointing campaign could trigger his departure from the club.
