Javier Hernandez will not be leaving Manchester United during the January transfer window, although his agent has cast doubt on his long-term future at Old Trafford.

His agent Eduardo Hernandez claimed his client was wanted by six clubs in Spain, Italy, France and Germany, including one global superpower.

Hernandez, who has been linked with Arsenal, Chelsea and Valencia, has scored on his last two appearances for United but appears to be David Moyes' fourth-choice striker, after Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck.

Eduardo Hernandez told ESPN Deportes: "I had meetings with a few clubs, I won't name them, nor their offers, they are very interested in him. One of the top ten teams in the world are among those teams that were very interested in signing Javier.

"There was a club from Germany, one from France, and two from Spain and Italy each that want to have him. However, he is under contract with Man Utd and he somehow has to respect it in case there is an agreement between the parties."

The striker joined United from Guadalajara in 2010 and has scored 57 goals for the club.

But his agent said he is unsure whether Hernandez, who has only started four league games this season, will still be at Old Trafford next season.

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]."
