Javier Hernandez scored his first goal since October 2013 against Swansea in the third round of the FA Cup, but the transfer rumours are still in the air.
Chicharito scored Manchester United’s equalizer just four minutes after Wayne Routledge defeated David de Gea with a volley.
Hernandez’s goal-scoring knack combined with his speed and mobility inside the box make him a very valuable asset for the Red Devils.
With the World Cup five months away, Hernandez needs to take advantage of the playing time he gets.
—LAST UPDATE: Thursday, January 9—
The Daily Mail's Chris Wheeler understands that Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra are likely to leave the club in the winter transfer window, but they would not be alone.
Wheeler reports that David Moyes is working in renewing his side and he would be willing to leave out other footballers, like Javier Hernandez, Nani, Anderson, Alex Buttner and Anders Lindegaard, to make it happen.
After losing to Swansea in the third round of the FA Cup, Moyes said:
There is an urgency that we want to sign players but are the ones we want available in January?

Newly appointed Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign Hernandez.
SportsDirectNews reports that the Manchester United legend is willing to try his luck and lure the Mexican striker to Wales.
But the Bluebirds are not the only club in the hunt. According to the same source, Swansea are also interested in Chicharito and are working on a loan deal.

Italian newspaper La Stampa understands that Inter Milan midfielder Mateo Kovacic could arrive to Old Trafford this winter.
The deal would include a fee and a player. You guessed right—he would be no other than Hernandez.
This is not the first time the Mexican has been linked with Inter Milan. Last December, The Telegraph's Mark Ogden reported that the Nerazzurri wanted Chicharito as part of an exchange deal.
