However, the journalist went on to state that the deal ‘won’t happen’ as Leeds are ‘not willing to lose him’ in the current market, despite the fact the £1.08 million-rated 35-year-old has started just two Premier League fixtures for Marcelo Bielsa’s side so far this season.
Should Leeds allow Hernandez to leave?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to Phil Hay’s tweet regarding interest in Pablo Hernandez?
“Pablo must retire at Leeds.”
“He’s not allowed to leave. With Rodrigo and Raphinha going off injured today we are going to need him!”
“I never want him to leave. Retire at Leeds and get a statue in for him”
“He must never ever leave.”
“Aw man, I’d be heartbroken”
“Why would you do this to us on a Sunday evening Phil”
“We can’t let him go”
“I just had a mini heart attack”
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Leeds fans would be devastated if Hernandez were to leave Leeds, with some stating that they want the 35-year-old to retire at their club, while others simply claimed that the club cannot afford to let the midfielder leave.
