Manchester United fans’ favourite linked with shock Premier League return

Kevin McGillicuddy

 Despite being twelve places apart in the Premier League table, the goalscoring records of Manchester United and Chelsea are very similar.

So far this season Chelsea have only scored 16 goals in the Premier League, which leaves them in 16th position in the table.

On the other hand, Louis van Gaal’s team have scored 17 and are fourth in the table.

Chelsea are now looking to bolster their attacking options by lining up a bizarre move for a former fans’ favourite at Old Trafford in January.

Javier Hernadez spent all of last season on loan at Real Madrid and made a full -time move to Bayer Leverkusen this summer where the Mexican has been in incredible form

That type of form has attracted lots of interest from across Europe and according to the Daily Mirror, quoting the Sunday People,  the club are very interested in ‘the Little Pea’ returning to England.

It seems unlikely that Bayer would let a player they have just signed leave six months later, especially considering his red-hot form, but money does talk and if Chelsea can offer a play in exchange the deal could be one of the biggest shocks of the new year transfer window.
