Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has heaped praise on Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, raising the prospect of the Mexico star heading to join the Spanish champions.

Hernandez has been linked with a move away from Manchester United this summer following a disappointing campaign at Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old started just six Premier League games last season as he remained behind fellow strikers Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck in the pecking order.
