Javier Hernandez: Has netted 16 goals this season

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists he has no interest in selling Javier Hernandez.

The striker has scored 16 times this season yet still cannot secure himself a regular starting spot for the club's biggest games.

He was not involved in either leg of the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid and with Robin van Persie now installed as Old Trafford's leading marksman, it is difficult to see the situation getting any better for Hernandez.

Little wonder therefore that the Mexican has been linked with a move away from United, who he joined as a virtual unknown from Chivas for just £7million in 2010.

However, Ferguson has told any potential suitors not to waste their time by even making an inquiry.

"He's on a long contract and we won't be entertaining any interest from anyone," said Ferguson.

"As far as we are concerned he is a really important player.

"He does something different from the other strikers and any time he comes into a game he changes it.

"It's not easy for me to leave him out because a 16-goal tally against the number of games he has started is a fantastic record.

"There's no evidence that he has been annoyed or disappointed.

"But it's difficult when you have got a player of Robin van Persie's form, and then you have got (Danny) Welbeck, (Wayne) Rooney, (Shinji) Kagawa.

"That's been the benefit of having a strong squad - it gives us an advantage over the other teams."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
