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.”

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez reckons the Mexican hitman is destined for a massive future at United and said: “He looked really, really sharp.
“He’s taken the step up into the Barclays Premier League really well and he has real quality.
“He’s a real talent that probably Manchester United captured before he caught the eye of anyone.
“I think it shows you the type of player that he is – very lively, clever with his movement, tactically impressive and a real asset.”
