Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has made it clear that his main priority ahead of next season is regular first-team football, be it at Real Madrid, at Old Trafford or any other club.

The Mexican international, who is currently contracted to the Red Devils until the summer of 2016 is facing an uncertain future, after the Spanish capital club refused to take up the offer of making his season-long loan deal a permanent one and Louis van Gaal is not keen on retaining him at United ahead of next season.

Hernandez admitted that he was frustrated at the lack of game time during the initial stint of his loan spell with the 10-time European champions, but he did make an impact in the latter half of the season, when the manager gave him a consistent run of games due to the injury suffered by first choice forward Karim Benzema.

Despite Real failing to win a trophy this campaign, the Mexican forward did his reputation no harm with his performances, as he contributed with nine goals and nine assists in 35 appearances in all competitions.

The 27-year-old forward has now admitted that he wants to return to Real on a permanent basis, but indicated that he is willing to join any other club or even remain with his current employers as long as he gets to play regular football.

"Yes, I want to stay at Madrid, but I also want to join a team where I can play and get minutes," Hernandez is quoted as saying by the Mirror.

"If I can do that at Manchester United or another club, I'll be happy. First-team football is my priority over anything else," the Mexican international forward added.

The Dutch manager is in the market for a new forward following the release of Radamel Falcao and has been linked with moves for Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain in recent days, while Hernandez is also not short of suitors with Inter Milan and Southampton showing interest in signing the striker.
