Javier Hernandez is injured and will not be joining the MLS

The Mexican forward Javier Hernandez sustained an injury during Mexico’s match against Honduras which concluded in a goal-less draw and now Hernandez will not be able to play in the 2015 Gold Cup that kicked off on July 7 and runs until July 26.

Hernandez broke his collarbone and he is expected to be out of action for up to 4 weeks as he will not be able to train or do any harsh physical activities. This is disastrous news for the Mexican player as he needs all the pre-season training that he can get in order to have any chance of landing a spot in Manchester United’s starting lineup.

In 5 seasons performing for Manchester United, Hernandez has scored 37 goals as he has struggled trying to score goals consistently as well as getting a regular role in the Premier League club. He was signed by Real Madrid on a season long loan deal where the Spanish club had the option of permanently signing him but they opted to let him go and now Hernandez has returned to Old Trafford without a clear path on what to do.

Javier Hernandez was rumored on joining the MLS but a transfer to the American League won’t happen due to the fact that Hernandez wants to earn $10 million each year and clubs aren’t prepared to spend that much in a player who hasn’t really proved himself at a big stage.

Andrea Pirlo signed with New York City FC and the Italian midfielder is earning $8 million. Pirlo is one of the biggest names in the world of football as he has managed to lift all the major pieces of silverware not only with his club but also for his country and Hernandez wants to earn more money than a player who has achieved absolutely everything in the world of football.

Manchester United is the current club of Javier Hernandez and he will be staying there unless another club launches an offer for the Mexican player.
