Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez has stressed that he must play regularly at whichever club he ends up at next season.
The Mexican striker has largely been a fringe figure in his five years at Old Trafford as was no more frequently used during a loan spell at Real Madrid last term, starting only seven La Liga games.

Los Blancos passed up the opportunity to sign Chicharito on a permanent basis, but there are believed to plenty of suitors for the 27-year-old should United allow him to leave this summer.
Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Everton have all been credited with an interest, and Hernandez has indicated that first-team football will be key to deciding his future.
“I imagine I will know something soon,” the Daily Star quotes him as telling Spanish publication Marca. “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.”
Hernandez has scored 59 goals in 154 appearances for the Red Devils, 69 of which have been as a substitute.
