Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez could be out of action for up to four weeks after breaking his collarbone during Mexico’s Gold Cup warm-up match against Honduras on Wednesday night.
Hernandez faces an uncertain future at Man United as it appears he is not part of Louis van Gaal’s plans for next season but this injury won’t help with any potential move away.
The 27-year-old spent last season on loan at Real Madrid but struggled during his time at the Bernabeu and the Spanish club decided not to exercise an option to keep him permanently next term.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Mexican and a switch to MLS side Orlando City is also said to be on the table.
United had hoped to command a fee of £8m for Hernandez but they may be forced to change their plans following the injury.
Hernandez is a proven goalscorer and he would be a solid addition for anyone who decides to bring him in.
Some fans have urged van Gaal to keep the player at United next season but there is a question mark over whether or not he can produce the performance levels needed if the club are to challenge in the Premier League and in Europe.
