Manchester United cannot afford to let Javier Hernandez leave without securing the services of a replacement according to Gary Neville.

The Mexican international is surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and reports this morning claim he's been told he is free leave before the window slams shut.

According to the Telegraph a move to German outfit Bayer Leverkusen could be on the cards, while West Ham and Tottenham have also been linked with a swoop.

If Hernandez does complete a move it would leave Wayne Rooney as the only senior striker at Manchester United, with only youngster James Wilson and makeshift options Memphis Depay and Marouane Fellaini as support.

Despite the fact that the Red Devils have been linked with a host of top forwards this summer including Neymar, Thomas Muller and Edinson Cavani no deal appears to be close with the window closing on Tuesday.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, who now works as a pundit for Sky Sports, believes there's no way Hernandez will leave unless an upgrade is bought in.


He said: "The goalscoring is not what you expect from Manchester United. You can't go into the season with just one striker. There's talk of Javier Hernandez leaving, or being allowed to leave.

"You can't see that happening without someone else coming in."

Manchester United will hope to continue their strong start to the season when they take on Swansea this afternoon.
