Javier Hernandez is looking for more playing time next season, whether it is at Manchester United or any other club.

The Mexico international – known as Chicharito – spent the 2014-15 season on loan at Real Madrid but made just 11 starts in all competitions for the Spanish giants.

Real turned down the option to make his stay permanent this month and the 27-year-old forward will be heading back to Old Trafford, where he has one year left on his contract.

“I’m currently on holiday and awaiting news regarding my future,” Hernandez said. “I imagine I will know something soon.

“Real had a deadline to exercise the right to acquire my rights but they let it go.

“Right now Real are like any other club and as of now I am a Manchester United player.

“That’s the only reality. Above all, I want to join a team where I can play and have minutes.

“If it’s at Manchester United or another team, I will be equally happy. My priority is to play.”

Last summer Hernandez chose to go out on loan as Louis van Gaal brought in Radamel Falcao on another temporary deal, although that move did not work out.

Hernandez would be happy to stay at United if there are opportunities available. “Last summer it was a different situation,” Hernandez said.

“When Van Gaal arrived he wanted to reduce the number of players.

“They weren’t playing in Europe and he preferred to focus on the Premier League.

“Perhaps he didn’t want many players because we wouldn’t have played. Now the situation is different.”
