Following in the footsteps of another emerging talent Tom Cleverley, Javier Hernandez has become the latest member of Sir Alex Ferguson’s side to commit his future to United after his agent announced that the striker had signed a new five-year contract.
Hernandez made a stunning impact of Manchester United last season, scoring 20 goals in all competition and he has already netted twice so far this season in just 7 games
His agent Eduardo Hernandez is quoted by various English newspapers as telling ESPN Deportes: “We have renegotiated Javier’s contract and he is now committed for five years with Manchester United.
“The initial contract was good for Manchester and for Javier because it enabled them 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.
“I will not talk about numbers, but it is a five-year contract. 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.”
Striker Danny Welbeck look set to be the next young member of the United team to sign a new deal after United offered the England striker a new improved contract
