Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is still set to leave Old Trafford this summer despite having been ruled out for a month with an injury.
As reported by the Manchester Evening News, the Mexican ace, who spent last season on loan at Spanish giants Real Madrid, could even complete a sensational move to Liverpool in the upcoming transfer window, with the Merseyside outfit linked with the player's signature.
As well as the Reds, MLS side Orlando could also swoop for the forward, who will be available for around £8 million, according to the same report.

The report claims that there were initial fears that the club would struggle to sell the striker, who has already undergone surgery following the broken collarbone.
It appears, though, with the player not in Louis van Gaal's long-term plans in Manchester, the Red Devils will look to offload him sooner rather than later.

One thing's for sure, it looks set to be an interesting couple of weeks for the former Real Madrid man, who will no doubt be hoping to star week in, week out at his next club.
He can't join Liverpool, can he?
There's no doubt about it, it really would come as a major surprise if Hernandez departed the Theatre of Dreams in favour of a move to Anfield, but stranger things have happened.
Ultimately, though, Hernandez would no doubt prove a fine option for Brendan Rodgers and Co., as the club go in search of improvement in the attacking department. The player is a proven goalscorer in England's elite division and still has a great deal to offer at just 27-years of age.
It certainly wouldn't go down well in Manchester, however, and it's surely extremely unlikely at this stage.
LVG right to sell
But, Van Gaal is right to move him. Ultimately, Manchester United can't look back as they look to move forward under the Dutch regime. Keeping Hernandez, unfortunately, would prove a backwards step for the club, who seem intent on returning to the summit of the Premier League table.
In youngster James Wilson, the Red Devils have a fine prospect, and he deserves the opportunity to shine more regularly next season.
