West Ham United are out of the race to sign Chicharito after hearing his wage demand of £90,000 a week and bonus per goal, according to Mirror.

The out of favour Manchester United has been linked with a move to several other clubs in this transfer window and it is believed that Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen were the front-runners to sign the player.

Now that West Ham United has pulled the plug from this deal, Leverkusen looks to be the likely destination of the Mexican striker. West Ham United have apparently found an alternative plan of Chicharito. Reportedly they are ready to rope in former Everton striker Nikica Jelavic from Hull City.

The Mexican international was sent off on loan to Real Madrid last summer on the transfer deadline as Dutch manager Louis van Gaal never preferred to play the crafty forward.

Hernandez did a commendable job last season as a Real Madrid player and made use of whatever little chance he got under Carlo Ancelotti. He remained at the bench for most of the season but was introduced in a key match last season against Atletico Madrid in UEFA Champions League quarter-final. Chicharito scored the all-important goal which guided Real Madrid to the semi-finals of the tournament.

Javier Hernandez had joined Manchester in 2010 and have won 2 Premier Leagues with the club during his stint. He was also a part of the Real Madrid squad which had lifted the Club World trophy last summer.

In his 157 appearances for the Red Devils, the Mexican international has scored 57 goals.
