Mexico international Hernandez, who is also known by his nickname Chicharito or Little Pea, was sold to Leverkusen by United in August 2015.
He has scored 39 goals in 76 matches in his two seasons with the German side.
The 29-year-old left Old Trafford with a record of 59 goals in 156 appearances, but was deemed surplus to requirements when Louis van Gaal took charge in 2014. He sent him on a season-long loan to Real Madrid before offloading him to Leverkusen for £7.3m the following summer.
He became Mexico’s all-time leading goalscorer when he netted his 47th goal for his national team in May.
