Manchester United have reportedly told any potential suitors for Javier Hernandez that the outcast striker is not for sale this summer, the Daily Star reports.
The Mexican international spent the previous season out on loan with Real Madrid, but following a return of nine goals in 33 appearances the Spaniards rejected the chance to bring him back for a second season.
West Ham had been heavily linked with a move for his signature in recent days, but now according to ESPN, the club have told the Hammers that he will be going nowhere this summer as he isn’t for sale.
His apparent replacement, Radamel Falcao, failed to impress during his own short stint at Old Trafford and was subsequently shipped back out to Monaco at the end of the season.
And since then, the club have allowed Robin van Persie to move on to Fenerbahce, meaning that the club have just Hernandez and Wayne Rooney as their only options up front.
The Mirror claims that Hernandez has been linked with a number of clubs already, with the likes of Southampton, Everton, Crystal Palace and MLS outfit Orlando SC all vying for his services.
Hernandez is currently sidelined with a broken collarbone (via Daily Mail), but upon his return he can now expect a second bite at success.
