Can The Swans Afford Pablo Hernandez ?
Monday, 7th Dec 2020 15:50 by Steph Thomas
Its speculation as it stands and there are other championship clubs in the mix, however Pablo Hernandez is set to leave Leeds United in the January window. Problem is he is thirty five now and his wages are way out of Swansea City's current pay structure.
This season Hernandez has been injured and dropped by his manager Bielsa and lets be honest he looked less than happy when last subbed against Everton. The main problems Pablo faces are his age and salary demands. A player of his age would expect to earn around twelve thousand pounds a week in the championship, halving his current one hundred thousand pounds a month wage at Elland Road.
Leeds United’s Pablo Hernandez has been back to leave by former player Danny Mills, with Brentford, Huddersfield Town and Swansea City all being suggested destinations.
Entering his fifth season at Elland Road, Hernandez has proved a hero at the club, scoring nine goals last season and some important ones at that. Now though, in the Premier League, Marcelo Bielsa has been slow to use Hernandez – he’s made just four league appearances all season.
Speaking to Football Insider, former Leeds defender Danny Mills suggested that Hernandez could soon be on his way out of the club. “Time caught up with him a little bit last season,” he said. “There were times when he was out injured for periods and when he came back in it was off the bench"
Some likely destinations for the departing Hernandez
Bielsa wont put up with open acts of defiance from his players and has had many situations in the past with players who have shown him disrespect. Publicly he will say little, but it is almost certain if Leeds can get him off the books in January they will.
