Report: Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez could become highest paid star in MLS

Close for Javier Hernandez for Mexico

Javier Hernandez has long been linked with a move to Major League Soccer franchise Orlando City, and could have an offer too good to refuse

Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez could be heading to Major League Soccer, if reports of a bumper pay offer from Medio Tiempo are to be believed.

The Mexico international spent last season on loan at Real Madrid but returned to Old Trafford after Los Blancos opted against making his stay a permanent one.

Hernandez looks unlikely to remain with Manchester United and has been linked with a whole host of clubs in recent weeks.

One team believed to be interested in the 27-year-old is newly-formed Major League Soccer franchise Orlando City - as reported by the Orlando Sentinel.

The club already counts former Brazil, AC Milan and Real Madrid star Kaka among its ranks, but are thought to be keen on signing Chicharito.

With several clubs keen, however, Orlando are thought to be going all-out to get their man, with Medio Tiempo reporting that they could make the Mexican an offer that would make him the highest paid player in MLS.

The report claims the club are lining up a deal that would see Hernandez earn around £6.4 million ($10m) a year.

Whether that is enough to convince Chicharito to leave the European game, remains to be seen.
