Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is on his way out of Old Trafford this summer, and after failing to earn a permanent switch to Real Madrid following his loan spell this season, he will need to find a new challenge.
His agent, Eduardo Hernandez, has told Univision Deportes that the Mexican striker will not be playing for Manchester United next term and did little to quash rumours of a move to the United States, admitting that his representatives are “open to MLS”.
Clubs across Europe are also keen on Hernandez as the 27-year-old poacher is in high demand. He has one year left on his United contract and will therefore cost a transfer fee.
That could be a stumbling block for any MLS side interested, with Orlando City the club most strongly linked with the former Chivas Guadalajara attacker.
He would almost certainly demand a Designated Player contract were he to move to MLS and his agents comments have left the window open.
The Univision report claims United would be willing to lower their asking price for Hernandez to help any move go through but if European sides are unwilling to take the risk, a move stateside will surely ensue.
This looks set to be an on-off transfer rumour but the longer it goes without Hernandez finding a club, the higher the chances of a move to MLS.
Would Javier Hernandez thrive in Major League Soccer?
