Javier Hernandez believes he has the talent and ambition needed to become a Manchester United legend, The Sun reports.
‘Chicharito’ got off to a great start at United by scoring in his debut against Chelsea and going on to land 13 goals in 27 league appearances in his debut season.
The 23-year-old Mexican believes he is still developing as a player and feels the quality of his teammates will help him improve.
He said: “I feel at home now and believe my game is developing all the time as I understand better how to play for this great club. My strength has improved and also I’m improving how I play — being quicker with the ball, with more technique and concentration — because it’s very difficult to keep the ball in this league.
“Of course I have a lot more improving to do and I will work hard every day to achieve that.
“There are a lot of great players in this league, and that I need to keep improving my game to succeed here. I’m working on all aspects of my game — speed, strength, technical ability with the ball, movement off the ball — as well as heading.”

Scholes attacks Arsenal.
Manchester United icon Paul Scholes has attacked Arsenal, claiming that their pretty football is ‘pointless’ because they do not win trophies. The former Red Devils midfielder also believes Samir Nasri is the ideal player to replace him.
Scholes, who brought an end to his playing career this summer after 676 appearances in 17 seasons, says he could not imagine Sir Alex Ferguson being allowed to carry on after six trophyless years, like what Arsene Wenger has been allowed to do.
Scholes told The Mirror: “Arsenal just flatter to deceive. They may play the prettiest football, but it doesn’t always produce the results they need. People talk about Arsenal as supposedly the best footballing team in England. That doesn’t irritate me, because while they’re doing that, we’re winning.
“They do play the best football to watch at times, but what’s the point of that if you’re not winning anything? It doesn’t help, either, that they are potentially going to lose their best players in Fabregas, Nasri and Clichy. Is Nasri coming to United? I hope so!”
Sunderland in for Gibson.
Sunderland are expected to step up their pursuit of Manchester United trio Darron Gibson, Wes Brown and John O’Shea as they look to complete the deals in the next few days, according to Eurosport.
The Black Cats had a joint offer of around £12million accepted for the players but are yet to agree personal terms with either of the players.
Although Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn is optimistic of concluding a deal for O’Shea, the club are facing competition from Stoke City and Arsenal for the signing of the Irishman, the Potters and Everton are also interested in Wes Brown and Gibson is a possible target for Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew.
