Manchester United Javier Hernández has encouraged speculation over his future after he endorsed a story suggesting he could leave Old Trafford.

Hernández's verified Twitter account, @CH14_, posted a link to comments made by fellow Mexican Carlos Vela, who said his compatriot should look to leave United if he does not start playing more regularly.

The 25-year-old striker came off the bench to score the winner in a 3-2 victory over Stoke a week ago and hit two in the Capital One Cup defeat of Norwich on Tuesday, but was an unused substitute for the 3-1 weekend win at Fulham.

Hernández endorsed a story speculating on his future at United

Tottenham had a bid rejected for Hernández during the transfer window and Moyes' preference for Danny Welbeck, before he suffered a knee injury, has possibly contributed to his frustration.

Welbeck, who scored two goals last season compared to Hernández's 18, started alongside Robin van Persie at Swansea and Liverpool, and partnered Wayne Rooney in the derby defeat to Manchester City.

In the article retweeted by Hernández, Real Sociedad forward Vela said: "If he plays regularly he will score, so I don't totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games.

"If he doesn't play regularly he will need to think about leaving."

Hernández, who has scored 54 goals for the champions, has also demanded "more opportunities" at United.
