West Ham have rejected the opportunity to sign Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez after the Mexican demand an incredible contract, the Daily Mirror report.
The 27-year-old wanted a basic wage of £100,000 a week, and a staggering bonus payment of £90,000 for every single goal he scored for the Hammers (via Mirror). Unsurprisingly, the Boleyn Ground outfit have told the Red Devils that they are not willing to sign the poacher.
Despite Slaven Bilic’s refusal to do a deal, it appears that Hernandez will still be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer, with the Mirror reporting that Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen are the ones closing in on a £12m deal for the striker.
The former Real Madrid loanee will act as a replacement for Son Heung-Min, who completed a move to Tottenham last week, and will be hoping to capitalise on the German side’s promising start to the season. In the top flight, they currently sit sixth with two wins and one defeat from their first three games.
