Former Man United striker who bagged 59 goals for the Red Devils tempted by £230k-a-week offer from MLS giants

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez could be set to be offered a lucrative deal to tempt him to the MLS, according to The Sun.

Hernandez moved to Man United in the summer of 2010 from Mexican outfit Guadalajara. Though relatively unknown upon his arrival in the Premier League, he fast made a name for himself at Old Trafford.

He bagged 20 goals in his debut season for the Red Devils, as they went on to lift the title. In total he scored 59 goals for the English heavyweights, before joining Bayer Leverkusen in a bid to revive his stuttering career.

However, it has not all been rosy in the Bundesliga. Hernandez initially hit the ground running in Germany, but has now failed to find the back of the net in three months. The Sun report that his teammates are growing tired of his attitude, and he could subsequently be set to leave the club.

The Sun cite ESPN Deportes show Jorge Ramos y tu Banda in reporting that MLS giants LA Galaxy are set to offer him a £12-a-year escape route from Bayer, that works out at a staggering £230,769-a-week. A move could well materialise in the summer.
