Manchester United have been told they will have to include Javier Hernandez as part of any deal to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford, according to The Sun. Real Madrid are reportedly so interested in the Mexico international that they will pursue a £25 million deal for him even if United's pursuit of Ronaldo [.
An early goal glut propelled the Philadelphia Union to their third win of the season, as Jack McInerney and Conor Casey scored within four minutes of each other to start a high scoring affair against rivals D.C. United.
Both teams attempted to feel out their opponents, with neither side getting a proper opportunity on net until the Union struck home in the seventh minute through McInerney.

Stoke City will host Premier League leaders Manchester United on Sunday at the Britannia Stadium in what should be a tough encounter for both sides involved. Stoke City are up against it with a powerful Red Devils side who will likely look to finish their 2012/13 campaign on a high note.
Every single club should attempt one of these challenges. Probably. There's a bit of appeal in making someone like Wayne Rooney, one of the most gifted players on the planet, look like a fool. But watching, say, Momo Sissokho attempt to volley blind and somehow managed to murder a child standing off camera probably has less appeal to the mass public.
The Telepathic Football challenge featuring Manchester United's Rooney, Welbeck and Hernandez - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Earlier this month, Manchester United strikers Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez took part in bwin's 'Telepathic Football' challenge, going up against the 1999 Man Utd's strike pairing of Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole.
Mexico drew Honduras yesterday but they won't be happy to have given away the two goal lead they jumped out to thanks to Javier Chicharito Hernandez. Hernandez struck first in the 28th minute and then in the 54th minute before Carlos Costly scored in the 77th minute. Jerry Bengston then brought Honduras level in the 80th minute after putting away his initially missed penalty.
Javier Chicharito Hernandez has been linked to Atletico Madrid in recent weeks, which suggests that the red and white side of Madrid could be offloading their highly sought after striker Radamel Falcao.
But should Sir Alex Ferguson offload his Mexican maestro? Having agreed a deal from Chivas de Guadalajara to Manchester United in 2010, Chicharito has gone on to feature 70 times in the Premier League for the Red Devils.
Two years ago, over an hour in to the game, Manchester United were trailing 2-0 against West Ham. It was the beginning of April and United had a title to win. Wayne Rooney was having a frustrating game and nothing was working for him... until the 65th minute. He scored a 14 minute hattrick to put United 3-2 up before Javier Hernandez scored our fourth.

After an amazing first leg at the Bernabeu, the time has come to decide who moves on to the next round of the Champions League. Old Trafford will host the game, which will mimic the atmosphere of a European final even if staged at the round of 16.
Javier Hernandez is destined for greatness at Man Utd - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Javier Hernandez became the first of his countrymen to play for Manchester United and has he made Mexicans proud or what!
Javier Hernandez is a great asset for Manchester United
While a lot has been said and written about Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney or even Michael Carrick (who is no more an unsung hero, especially the heaps of praise ushered on him) and their contribution to the team; Hernandez, with a moniker Chicharito, is calmly doing his customary job without making any big fuss, i.

While some may well say that the English tournament has lost some of its luster in recent decades, this weekend's bountiful helping of FA Cup action wouldn't let you know that was the case.
Saturday and Sunday's fixtures provided us with a host of giant-killings and surprises between sides staged as far as four divisions apart, leading me to question just who can put down the quality of such a competition; one that's open to so many.
Didier Drogba is in South Africa hanging out with his Ivorian teammates at the AFCON (with the 'handsome' Gervinho, as voted by the Toure brothers and Drogba himself). Meanwhile, the clock is fast ticking on the transfer window and Drogba has apparently, in between all of that finalised a move to Galatasaray!

Manchester United take on Fulham in the 4th Round of the FA Cup at the weekend. Both the Red Devils and Cottagers were pushed to the brink in the 4th Round against West Ham United and Blackpool respectively. Sir Alex Ferguson can only hope his squad can get the job done in the first leg at Old Trafford this weekend as the the battle for the Premier League crown heats up, along with their Champions League Round of 16 clash with Real Madrid quickly approaching.

This weekend Fulham, will travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in the fourth round of the F.A. Cup. The Red Devils are coming off a 1-0 win over West Ham to advance to the next stage of the tournament. Although, they were able to hold off the Hammers and progress, it was a free-for-all in the last round.

Knowing that Manchester United would come out of the gates in full force, conceding an early goal at Old Trafford was certainly not part of Sam Allardyce's game-plan.
It only took Wayne Rooney nine minutes to make an impact in his return from injury, and his quick goal was all that Manchester United needed to get the FA Cup replay victory over West Ham on Wednesday.
Rooney, who had been out since Christmas Day with a knee injury suffered during training, redirected a pass from Javier Hernandez into a wide-open goal to register his ninth goal of the season.

Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez are two players not only defining so much of what is great about their respective sides, but are also coming to define the 2012-13 Premier League campaign as arguably its most influential and thrilling performers.
Manchester United ended a very successful holiday season, thrashing Wigan Athletic 4-0. The win allowed United to maintain their seven-point lead over champions Manchester City, after City beat Stoke 3-0.
Robin Van Persie began 2013 much like he ended 2012, with a pair of goals, taking his league-high tally to 16 goals.
Manchester United entered the game on top of the league table and looking to expand the gap between them and their Premier League rivals while Newcastle found themselves floundering in the middle of the table. With Wayne Rooney ruled out, the onus of creating and scoring goals had to fall on the shoulders of another player while Newcastle had to turn in a good performance in hopes of gaining a point or even three in this crucial match.
Javier Hernandez has the best minute per goal ratio in the Premier League this season, scoring a goal every 86 minutes he's been on the pitch, but has only started six games in the league. With Robin van Persie scoring so infrequently and Wayne Rooney struggling for top form, it's been surprising to see Chicharito still not get much of a look in.
It was a game of two half's at Old Trafford today as Manchester United and Chelsea drew in the FA Cup.
United jumped to a two-goal lead inside the opening 11 minutes but Chelsea came roaring back to earn a replay after second-half goals from Eden Hazard and Ramires. And if was not for a brilliant 90th minute save from David De Gea from Juan Mata, Chelsea fans would be toasting a remarkable comeback.
The Estadio Azteca is one of the most difficult places to play in world football and getting a point at the vaunted Mexican stadium is a very difficult task. The draw with Mexico actually moved the United States down the CONCACAF standings, but a draw at Mexico's home field is an encouraging result.
The CONCACAF Hexagonal battle is heating up and will hit a boil on Tuesday as the United States takes on Mexico. Numerous of fierce battles have encapsulated these two national teams throughout the years and Tuesday night will be no different.
As the Hex continues to separate the weak from the strong a victory could potentially vault one of the teams into a pole position to World Cup 2014 qualification while a loss could possibly place a damper on qualification.
Fans of the USA-Mexico rivalry will be well schooled on the players making up the roster for the upcoming World Cup qualifier at Estadio Azteca. Names like Javier Hernandez, Andres Guardado and Gerardo Torrado have long been a part of the great matchups between the teams. Mexico will travel to face Honduras on March 22 in San Pedro Sula before heading home to host the United States.
