Manchester United will reportedly offer Javier Hernandez an improved long-term contract at the end of the season in order to ward off any potential suitors.

The 22-year-old's stock has risen quite dramatically since his move to Manchester last summer and, according to the Daily Star, AC Milan, Real Madrid and Valencia are all keen on the Mexican.

United are now prepared to triple his current £20,000-per-week wages, it has been claimed, in order to keep him at Old Trafford for a significant period of time.

Hernandez has surpassed all expectations for United this season, scoring 20 goals to date - including 13 in 26 Barclays Premier League games.

Such has the young striker's impact been that United's top goalscorer Dimitar Berbatov has been forced to the bench - starting just five of the Red Devils' last 18 matches.

According to the Daily Star, the Bulgarian and his representatives will meet Sir Alex Ferguson during the summer to seek assurances that Berbatov still has a future at Old Trafford.


Ferguson, meanwhile, is wary of Hernandez burning out, with his first full campaign at Old Trafford followed by a busy off season with Mexico in the Gold Cup.

"Once he plays in the Gold Cup, Javier will be given a proper rest and we will take it up from there," said the United boss.

"His performances in training and in games suggests there is no tiredness at all, but we will keep monitoring that.

"If we get the result tomorrow he will get the rest. If we don't then he will play next Sunday."
