Manchester United's Javier Hernandez has Premier League and MLS offers, reveals Guillem Balague

Javier Hernandez

The Mexican striker, who is on a season-long loan at Real Madrid, would reportedly prefer to head back to England in the summer rather than go to America.

Manchester United misfit Javier Hernandez wants to return to the Premier League next season rather than make a move to MLS, according to Sky Sports Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

Hernandez, 26, joined Real Madrid on a season-long loan in September after falling out of favour at Old Trafford but has had to make do with a bit-part role, earning just his second La Liga start in the weekend’s 3-0 win over Eibar, when he scored his fifth goal of the campaign.

Real do have the option to make his spell permanent in the summer but the Mexican striker is instead expected to return to Manchester, where his parent club will again attempt to offload him.

The Daily Mail reported last week that MLS side Orlando City SC had made enquires about a deal to unite the former Chivas product with Brazilian superstar and club captain Kaka but added that the Florida-based outfit will face strong competition for his signature from the Premier League.

Everton, Southampton Stoke City and West Ham United have all been named as interested parties and, while Balague himself has not revealed which specific teams are after the United-owned forward, he insists that offers from both England and America are on the table.

“He talks about frustration, and the frustration is not just about this year,” Balague said while discussing Hernandez’s future on Revista de La Liga.

“It is about two bad years, where he hasn’t been given the chances and has obviously lost his place in the line-up with Mexico as well.

“Now it is a matter of what he does next. He’s got offers from the MLS, offers from the Premier League, he’s got a good press in England. He quite clearly wants to stay in the Premier League, and he wants to play regularly which he hasn’t been able to.”

Hernandez made just six starts in 24 league games for United last season, scoring four goals, but the promise he showed during the previous three campaigns under Sir Alex Ferguson’s guidance has kept Premier League rivals interested during his recent struggles.

His enormous reputation back in North America would see him become one of the biggest draws in MLS were he to move back across the Atlantic but it looks like he still has unfinished business in Europe at this point.
