Jimenez confirms Man Utd did make an approach for him in summer transfer window

Raul Jimenez has revealed that Manchester United made moves to sign him in the summer.

The Mexican has been a big hit at Wolves having originally joined on loan from Benfica in 2018.

He made his move permanent a year later and has continued to be a regular source of goals for the upwardly mobile outfit.

Last term he scored 27 times in all competitions and United's desire to recruit a forward in the summer inevitably led to links of a move for Jimenez.

The Red Devils eventually signed Edinson Cavani on a free, but not before they and Juventus had made an approach for the 29-year-old.

Speaking to TUDN, Jimenez said: "One day I woke up and Juventus 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.

"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."

Wolves have finished in the top seven in each of the past two seasons and continue to invest as they seek to break into the top four.

Losing Jiminez would undoubtedly be a blow to their ambitions, but the forward refused to rule out a new challenge in the future.

He continued: "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."
