Javier Hernandez will not be allowed to leave Manchester United this summer, according to reports.
The striker was believed to be seeking a way out of Old Trafford in order to find first-team football.
He spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, where he scored nine goals in 33 appearances, but the Spanish giants turned down the chance to sign the Mexican on a permanent basis.
West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with an interest in the proven poacher and were reportedly preparing swoops once United had finalised a deal for Barcelona star Pedro.
But Sky Sports claim that Louis van Gaal now has no intention of selling the 27-year-old before the transfer deadline, with the Red Devils currently very short in the striking department.
Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao have already departed the club, and a replacement has yet to arrive despite links to Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
