Van Gaal rules out Hernandez return

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has slammed the door on Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez returning to Old Trafford next season.

The Mexican is on a season-long loan from United at Real Madrid and has been in blistering form of late, scoring the winner in the Champions League quarter-final clash with neighbours Atletico Madrid and netting a brace in the 4-2 win at Celta Vigo on Sunday.

However, the Dutchman was firm in his response when asked if Hernandez could find himself back at Old Trafford this summer.

“Chicharito’s future? I’ve already sent him away once,” Van Gaal was quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

“When you score a goal, as he has just done for Real Madrid, are you suddenly different? I don’t think so.

“I told him the same as I told Danny Welbeck, that he was again a substitute and I didn’t feel that was any good to him.”
