Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, nicknamed Chicharito, has offered to play for the struggling Manchester team for free.

“If United came for me then I’d say ‘yes, I’ll play for free.’ Of course, you know, I’d do that,” the 34-year-old Chicharito, who presently plays for LA Galaxy in MLS said in an interview.

Chicharito won two English Premier League titles with United under Sir Alex Ferguson during his five year spell at Old Trafford.

His offer to return to United for free comes as United’s new coach Erik Ten Hag searches for solutions to save struggling United who began their new season with a shocking loss to Brighton at Old Trafford last weekend.

Club talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has spent all summer angling for a move away from the club but his wish has so far remained unsanctioned by ten Hag.

There are already concerns that Saturday’s loss could extend string of poor performance from last last season for which the new manager was brought in to correct.

Manchester United won 16 games, scored 57 goals, garnering just 58 points last season, ranking 6th on the English Premier League log and failed to qualify for the coveted Champions League.
