Coach Louis Van Gaal said that Mexican forward Javier 'Chicharito' Hernández has an option to claim a position in the Manchester United.

“Chicharito is coming on 25 July,” the boss explained during his press conference. “Okay he can prove himself again and now Falcao and van Persie are gone, so his chances are better now,” expressed the coach at a press conference.

At present, Rooney and James Wilson are the only recognised strikers in the United squad after van Persie left for Fenerbahce and loan signing Falcao moved on to Barclays Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Asked if he is worried about a possible lack of depth up front, the manager was quick to praise his options.

"No, as still we have Rooney, he can play in the strikers' position. All the media last year wrote he has to play there and I listen to the media! And we have Chicharito, and maybe Wilson, and maybe there comes a surprise. You never know, it is a process. I am not worried about that position.”
