Javier Hernández may currently only be out on loan at Real Madrid, but his Manchester United career is over, according to Mark Ogden of the Telegraph. The Mexican forward is apparently to be sold in the summer, regardless of whether or not Louis van Gaal elects to make Radamel Falcao's stay at Old Trafford permanent (at present, signs suggest he will).

As much as TBB loves Hernández, it's hard to say that he's done much over in Spain to erase memories of his poor season at United under David Moyes. The 26-year-old has only made one league start in Carlo Ancelotti's star-studded outfit, and though three goals in 164 minutes of La Liga football is a perfectly reasonable return, the sample size certainly isn't big enough to draw any solid conclusions.

In the same article, Ogden writes that Rafael and Luke Shaw could return as soon as this weekend from the injuries they sustained against Yeovil -- though if the former is available, he'd have to wear a protective mask. Daley Blind, who has missed the last couple of months with a knee injury, could also apparently make van Gaal's matchday squad.
