Chicharito looks a stayer

Chicharito looks set to see out the final year of his contract at the club next season and remains very much a favourite of the manager.

The Mexican has been seen to great effect over recent games and has now taken his goal tally for the season to eight and with the run of games has been hitting his stride.

The Hammers made it clear in the winter window that there was no chance of him leaving on a loan deal to Valencia and were insisting on a £12 million fee.

That decision looks to have been justified and the striker himself is demonstrating much better body language than earlier in the season.

Pellegrini is a big fan and will be reluctant to let a player whose goal tally could enter double figures leave as he enters the second year of his contract.

A well placed source at the club told us by e-mail : “Javier looks a much better player with the run of games he is getting and has also been good when arriving as a sub.”

  1. Seems odd to me. Two weeks ago the majority wanted to see the back of him after the cheating and diving allegations. Now after only 45 minutes of football (and admittedly 2 goals of course) he’s an indispensable “stayer”.

    Very fast turn around in opinion. Hope he leaves the diving out if he stays, we’re used to putting up with inconsistent performers but not divers.

  2. West Ham just need to play to Chicharito’s strength! Serve him up opportunities inside the box and he’s a 20 goals a season player. if he starts 35 games.

  3. Don’t like seeing players dive but unfortunately you see it in most Premiership games by many different players . Just wish it wouldn’t happen at West Ham . His goal scoring talent is undeniable though . Very happy to see him stay , a double figure goal tally guaranteed if given enough game time .

  4. I believe we should cash in on him during the summer for two reasons, assuming Arne stays we will be brining in at least 1 forward so I just cant see him playing so much, secondly as far as I know his contract is up at the end of next season.
