PAPER CHASE

Get the latest rumors as the biggest clubs try to bolster their rosters.

Mexico's national team manager Miguel Herrera has claimed that Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is frustrated with a lack of opportunities at Old Trafford.

The 25-year-old has featured 16 times in the Premier League so far this season but he has mainly been used off the bench, making just four starts.

Hernandez has been linked with an exit in recent months, although his agent claimed that the striker had turned down offers from a number of European sides during the January transfer window.

The Mexico star has two years remaining on his current deal with United but Herrera says Hernandez is unhappy after speaking with him on a recent tour of Europe.

"He seemed well but he is a bit frustrated because he doesn't play despite training well and the truth is that when he does play, he makes a huge effort on the pitch," he told Raza Deportiva. "He is a bit frustrated because the current manager doesn't give him many chances, but he is committed and doing what he can to become a starter.

"He likes to work and likes to show determination to achieve his goal."

CRASH COURSE

Catch all the movers and shakers from this winter's transfer window.

Hernandez's agent, Eduardo Hernandez, has now claimed that he has shunned offers from Germany, Spain and France to remain with United.

The agent was asked if he sees Hernandez at United after the next six months, and he added: "I couldn't say that for sure, football is dynamic and his current situation could change tomorrow, so there are clubs that are interested, that like him a lot and trust him to succeed.

"He has achieved a high value in Europe's market and I can't say that there won't be anything concrete after the next six months. However, we do hope he gets minutes [on the pitch]."
