Roberto Martinez wanted to sign Javier Hernandez last summer – but admitted the striker was too expensive for Wigan.

Hernandez put Manchester United on their way to victory at Wigan with two clinical strikes, and Wigan boss Martinez said: “He was a player that went out of our market.

“I think everyone was aware of him when he played for Mexico.

“But obviously he’s a real talent who Manchester United ­probably captured before he caught the eye of anyone.

“He’s very clever with his movement, tactically impressive and a real asset to United.”
