Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez was tight-lipped when asked about his future at Old Trafford and whether he was set to leave.

 

Hernandez has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Porto over recent weeks, one as a makeweight for Kaka, the other in a swap for young Colombian star James Rodriguez.

 

Chicharito refused to comment on the speculation, instead insisting he would not be thinking about Manchester United for the next week, as he is away with the Mexico national team.

 

“This is always mentioned; you have to keep the due respect for the national team and when we are here, my head is here 100 percent,” he is quoted as saying by ESPN.

 

“I am grateful that I am being kept in mind for these two matches and I am going to take them with the same seriousness.

 

“You are going to hear the same thing always, but I am with the national team and my club is not my priority now, my head is in the match versus Guyana.”

 

Hernandez’s future at Old Trafford has been questioned since Manchester United paid £24million for Arsenal captain Robin van Persie in the summer, limiting his chances up front.

 

Since the Dutchman joined Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, the 24-year-old has started just one Premier League game and has only featured in four out of Manchester United’s first seven games.
