Manchester United Sign Up Striker

By on October 13, 2011

Manchester United have continued in signing up their talented young players by negotiating a deal which will see their 23 year-old Mexican striker, Javier Hernandez stay at United for the next five years. The news comes just days after United confirmed that English midfielder Tom Cleverley signed a new and improved deal to keep him at Old Trafford for the next four years.

Hernandez, who scored 20 goals during his debut season with Manchester United, will apparently receive £80,000 per-week, although this figure was not confirmed by the players agent who revealed most of the details on the deal. Eduardo Hernandez said:

“We have renegotiated Javier’s contract and he is committed for five years to Manchester United. The initial contract was good for both Javier and the club because it enabled both to see if they could fit together and if he could achieve what was expected of him.”

“Both sides have met their expectations and United were happy to reward Javier after his very good performances last season.”

“United came up with a very good offer and I have nothing but praise for the way they have recognised Javier’s performances. I will not talk about numbers (wages), but it is a five-year contract.”

Hernandez missed the start of the season with an injury he picked up in pre-season, so has not started as well as last season, but with his predatory skills in front of goal, he is sure to add to the two goals he has scored so far. He arrived at United on a basic £25,000 per week wage, and despite the recent improvement is still far from the likes of Wayne Rooney. However, if Hernandez continues to play well and stay loyal, he may be seeing another contract offer arrive in the next few years. His agent continued:

“It is a fixed salary with incentives based on the team’s success in each of the different tournaments.”

“Javier was not badly paid with his initial contract, but it was his first contract and, with respect, not comparable with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Nani. But today I can say that the contract has just been signed and everyone is satisfied.”
