Manchester United striker rejected Valencia approach

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez rejected the opportunity to speak to Valencia about a proposed transfer to the Mestalla, according to the agent of the Mexico international.

Hernandez's future with the Premier League champions has been the subject of frequent speculation of late after he found his role become somewhat limited last season following the acquisition of Robin van Persie.

The 25-year-old was an absentee from Manchester United's weekend victory over Swansea given his summer commitments with Mexico, and witnessed the starting forward duo of Van Persie and Danny Welbeck both score twice.

Hernandez, however, is still likely to remain in the plans of new Manchester United manager David Moyes and has no desire to leave Old Trafford, despite Valencia's hope to secure his signature before the transfer deadline.

"Of course he wants to play more, to have more minutes, to participate more, but he wants to do it at United, he wants to defend the title and go far in the Champions League," his agent Eduardo Hernandez told El Universal.

"The interest from Valencia was real. He had the chance to speak with the sporting director [Braulio Vazquez] but Javier, I reiterate, wants to stay at Manchester United, this is the challenge. He was very grateful to Valencia and the other clubs who called him.

"It's not a question of money - we didn't even talk about that subject, there's only one subject for Javier: he wants to play and be a starter at United."

Hernandez has scored 50 goals in 117 appearances for Manchester United since joining the club from Guadalajara in the summer of 2010.
