Javier Hernandez offered huge contract to leave Manchester United for MLS

Manchester United aren't exactly blessed with striking talent right now, thanks to the departures of Robin van Persie and Falcao over the summer.

Louis van Gaal's side will start the season with Wayne Rooney playing as a center forward by himself, with new signing Memphis Depay in behind him. 

If Rooney gets injured, things start to look a lot bleaker with only James Wilson and Javier Hernandez in the squad who could realistically replace him. And Hernandez might not even still be at Old Trafford for too long.

According to a report from Gibran Araige of Univision in Mexico, Chicharito has apparently been offered a huge contract by Major League Soccer to leave The Red Devils and return to North America.

The offer to Hernandez is reportedly $10million-a-year, which would see the Mexican star become the highest paid player in the history of MLS.

Just to put that amount of money into context, it is $3m a year more than Kaka - the current highest paid player - earns at Orlando City and around $4million a year more than Frank Lampard, Andrea Pirlo and Steven Gerrard will be making at New York City and LA Galaxy, respectively.

In fact, that is even more than some teams spend on their entire rosters. It's a mind-boggling amount of money for MLS, but they are desperate to get their man.

MLS have been chasing Hernandez for a while, they see his stardom in Mexico as something that could attract hundreds and thousands of El Tri fans in to watching their league. 

We'll just have to wait and see if Hernandez decides to accept the record breaking offer.
