Man Utd tipped to sign Wolves ace Raul Jimenez but deal would only happen on one condition

Manchester United could sign Wolves striker Raul Jimenez but not until the summer, says Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol. United are said to be “very interested” in signing Jimenez after tracking his progress in the Premier League. The former Benfica man has scored 34 goals for Wolves since his initial loan move to the club in the summer of 2018.

Half of those goals have come this season, with the Mexican netting nine times in 11 Europa League appearances.

Solhekol was asked of the chances United could sign Jimenez this month as they look to add more firepower up front.

He thinks it would be extremely unlikely Wolves would be willing to allow their star forward to leave halfway through a season.

However, he reckons a summer deal is definitely not out of the question.

“I think you have to say the chances are very small because Wolves will not sell him,” Solhekol said.

“He’s done such a great job for Wolves since they signed him.
Manchester United have been watching him very, very closely, he’s a player they’re very interested in.

“But I just don’t think Wolves would sell him in January, halfway through a season in which they’re doing so well.

 

“But it is something that could potentially happen in the summer.”

Meanwhile, Solhekol’s colleague Dharmesh Sheth questioned whether signing Jimenez would delay the progress of United’s younger players.

Jimenez is 28, much older than United’s current forwards Marcus Rashford (22), Anthony Martial (24) and Mason Greenwood (18).

“It’s a strange one though because it’s at odds to United’s transfer policy,” Sheth responded.
