Man Utd in pole position to sign 29-year-old Premier League striker

By | October 30, 2020

Wolves star Raul Jimenez continues to “keep doors open” on the transfer front at the club, with the Mexican continuing to spark talk of interest from the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in spite of committing to a new deal.

The prolific frontman has agreed to fresh terms at the Molineux outfit through to the summer of 2024.

Wolves have ensured that a key man on their books retains full market value, with a long-term agreement ensuring that the club can demand big money from any sale.

Raul has offered no indication that he’ll be looking for a way out, with the 29-year-old Red Devils target feeling settled in his current surroundings.

The former Atletico and Benfica man is, however, aware that anything can happen in football and concedes that further talk regarding his future is set to be sparked in upcoming markets.

He told Sky Sports of the transfer rumours he has been generating, with sides across Europe said to be monitoring his prolific strike rate in the top-flight:

“I was on my days off, on holiday, and every day that I woke up I was at a new club. It was just rumours, that’s it. I’m happy here and happy to stay here.

“You always have to keep doors open for everything but never lose your mind. It’s going to be like this for all the transfer windows.

“If I stay, I’m very happy and I’m going to keep playing the same. If I have to leave, well it’s going to be part of it. We are professional football players and it is part of our life.”
