Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez ready to revive Manchester United career

Javier Hernandez is hopeful of resurrecting his career at Manchester United – but is prepared to head elsewhere for first-team football.

The Mexican striker spent last season on loan at Real Madrid after being deemed surplus to requirements by new manager Louis van Gaal, who instead brought in Colombian Radamel Falcao on loan.

Hernandez scored nine goals in 33 appearances at the Bernabeu but the Spanish giants declined the opportunity to make the move permanent and he will report back to United after the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July.
Speaking to Marca, the 27-year-old revealed he has not given up hope of salvaging his Old Trafford future.

'Last summer it was a different situation,' he said. 'When Van Gaal arrived, he wanted to restructure the team and reduce the number of players.

'They weren’t playing in Europe and he preferred to focus on the Premier League. Perhaps he didn’t want many players because we wouldn’t have played, but now the situation is different.

'There will be a Champions League preliminary round to play, which means many more games and I think there might be more opportunities. I think I have more options to play at United next season.'
Hernandez was a £6m signing from Chivas de Guadalajara in 2010 and has previously been linked with Everton.

The 27-year-old scored seven goals and set up four more in 23 La Liga appearances for Real, who finished runners-up to Barcelona.

A goal from Hernandez gave Real a 1-0 victory over city rivals Atletico Madrid to put them into a fifth straight semi-final of the Champions League.
'I have no regrets,' he said on his loan move to the Spanish capital. 'I've given everything I had at Real.

'I'm very proud to have represented this club. I went through hard times but also experienced beautiful moments.

'I would also be delighted if (new Real Madrid coach Rafa) Benitez called me to say he wanted my services,' he said.

'What any player wants is to play. If that doesn’t happen at United, I will look for a team where I will be given more playing time.'
Van Gaal is in the market for a striker after declining to make misfiring Falcao's switch permanent.
