Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has offered to play for free in order to help the club solve its striker crisis.
Erik ten Hag is currently dealing with a striker crisis, with star player Cristiano Ronaldo looking to leave and Anthony Martial out with a hamstring injury.
The Old Trafford hierarchy is looking for a striker this summer, but it appears that Hernandez, 34, is willing to help the club.
Hernandez, nicknamed Chicharito, scored 59 goals in 157 appearances for Manchester United and is now hoping to challenge for the league title with MLS club LA Galaxy this season.
In an interview with the Mirror, the Mexican forward stated that he would consider returning to Manchester United, though he is currently content in Los Angeles.
‘If United approached me, I’d say, “Yes, I’ll play for free.” Of course, I’d do that,’ he explained.
‘However, I also want to be respectful of my club.’ I’m playing very consistently, and my conviction is to win a championship with the LA Galaxy.’
‘If things happen in the future, they will happen – but in my mind, I am 100 percent with LA.’
So far, Hernandez has been an important part of the LA Galaxy’s playoff push, scoring nine goals in 21 appearances this season, with the MLS club currently sitting ninth in the league.
