Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has offered to play for the club for 'free' if he ever returned to Old Trafford.

Hernandez, 34, enjoyed a five-year spell at Man United under the tutelage of legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

He scored 59 goals in all competitions, helping the Red Devils to two Premier League titles.

And the club clearly holds a special place in his heart as the player known as 'Chicharito' insists he would play for free if he returned to Man United.

"If United came for me then I’d say 'yes, I’ll play for free.' Of course, you know, I’d do that," he said via The Mirror.

"But I also want to be very respectful to my club. I am playing very consistently and in my mind my conviction is all about winning a championship with LA Galaxy.

"In the future, if things happen then they happen - but in my mind I am 100 percent with LA."

If comes as Erik ten Hag is short of strikers, with Cristiano Ronaldo wanting a move away from the club and Anthony Martial injured.

Ten Hag has since entered the market for a new forward, with a host of targets mooted.

The Dutchman's reign as Man United boss got off to a terrible start as his side suffered a shock home defeat to Brighton last weekend.

Hernandez continued by claiming his old team must get over the fact that Ferguson has left.

"United need to get over the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson has gone," the Mexican forward added.

"Would we like to have someone similar? Yes, yes, yes. But Sir Alex has gone and it is never going to be the same.

"It doesn't surprise me what has happened at United because in life it’s not easy having a manager for 26 years in the way that Sir Alex did it."
