New West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini wants to hold urgent talks with Chicharito as soon as the World Cup is over.
Earlier in the year, it looked like Chicharito would leave London. The player’s legendary grandfather suggested a move was imminent and Chivas was reportedly interested in bringing the striker back to Mexico.
However, the subsequent sacking of David Moyes and arrival of former Man City manager Pellegrini could signal a fresh start for the 29-year-old.
According to a leading West Ham fansite (Claret and Hugh), the new manager wants to reduce the Hammers reliance on aerial balls and instead play a more possession-based brand of football. He reportedly sees Hernandez as integral to the new approach.
It’s understood that Pellegrini thinks the Mexican is one of the best finishers in world football.
Hernandez has only been at West Ham for one season. He scored eight goals in 28 league appearances as his side finished 13th in the Premier League.
