Mexican striker Javier Hernandez has been heavily linked with a move away from Manchester United in the last few months. Even though he scored more than 20 goals in his first season at the club, Hernandez has found first-team opportunities difficult since then.

He has often been on the substitutes bench with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie preferred up front. Since this could potentially hamper his chances of playing in the 2014 World Cup with the Mexican national team, it is thought that he is pressing for away from United.

A number of clubs including Valencia and Tottenham have been linked with his services, but the player has reportedly decided to stay at Old Trafford according to his agent. Valencia recently lost the services of Roberto Soldado, who moved to Tottenham in £ 26 million deal. The Spanish club have reportedly made Hernandez as their number one target. His agent, Eduardo Hernandez, says that Hernandez is not looking for more money and he is only targeting regular first-team football. The arrival of new manager David Moyes is expected to hand him some opportunities.

Hernandez was not part of the United team that played against Swansea during the weekend. He scored three goals for Mexico at the Confederations cup.

"Valencia were really interested. I had the opportunity to talk to the sporting director but Javier wants to consolidate himself in Manchester. Manchester United is his challenge. It has nothing to do with money. He wants to play and get a starting spot at United. He knows that he is in a very competitive team and that he must fight everyday for his place, from the dressing room to the training field. But he is not afraid. He told me he is more motivated than ever," said Eduardo Hernandez.
