In a recent interview with Mexican outlet TUDN (via the Mirror), Raul Jimenez said he’s very happy at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The striker was heavily linked with Manchester United in the past, especially in January last year when the Red Devils ended up signing Odion Ighalo on loan, but there’s very little chance their interest will be reignited any time soon after the arrival of Edinson Cavani from Paris Saint-Germain. Jimenez confirmed that the interest was real, as well as that from Juventus with the Old Lady looking for the right type of centre-forward to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
“But an agreement was never reached and nothing was close. I’m very happy at Wolves,” he said.
He also revealed that a move could happen at some point in the future, but its nature would have to be such that it suits himself, Wolves, and whatever club comes in as a potential suitor.
The 29-year-old arrived to the Molineux in 2018, initially on a season-long loan which was made permanent a year later. He has so far netted 48 goals in 108 appearances in all competitions for Nuno Espirito Santo’s team.
