Wolves star Raul Jimenez confirms Man Utd transfer approach

Raul Jimenez

Raul Jimenez has now confirmed that Manchester United made contact over signing him in the summer wimdow and has refused to rule out a transfer move to the club in the future.

The Mexican, who scored a remarkable 27 goals in all competitions for Wolves, was on United’s shortlist as they looked to improve their attack.

But, the Red devils decided to sign Odion Ighalo on loan from Shanghai Shenhua on January 31, while they also signed Edinson Cavani on a free transfer in the summer transfer window.

And Jimenez committed his future to Wolves by signing a three-and-a-half-year contract at the start of October although he would still be open to a move away from the club.

He told TUDN: “One day I woke up and uventus wanted me, another Manchester United and what I know is that there were approaches made. But an agreement was never reached and nothing was close. I’m very happy at Wolves.”

He added: “The truth is I am very happy in Wolverhampton. It’s never wrong to be in a place where you are well but they know that I am not satisfied [with my form], I always look for more.

“It (a move) did not happen this time. If it happens at some point then it will have to be what is best for me, for Wolves and the team that I join. But I am very happy at Wolves and being considered a very important player.”

Wolves are currently ninth in the Premier League, and Jimenez has scored four league goals in eight matches this campaign.

The former Benfica forward joined Wolves in a club-record £30m deal in 2019, and he is currently on international duty with Mexico and is set to face South Korea in a friendly game on Saturday before a match with Japan three days later.
