Wolves striker Jimenez confirms Manchester United made a move for him in the summer

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has confirmed that Manchester United made an approach for his services in the summer.

The Mexican has netted 34 goals and provided 13 assists in his 84 Premier League outings for Wolves, firing the Black Country club into the Europa League at the first time of asking.

Jimenez’s form saw him tentatively linked with some of Europe’s biggest sides, though no move ever materialised, with Wolves keeping hold of the majority of their top performers once again.

Manchester United were one of the clubs linked with the 29-year-old as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looked to pep up his attacking options, eventually completing a deadline day move for Edinson Cavani.

However, it seems as though the Old Trafford outfit did make some kind of a move for Jimenez, who insists he is happy at Molineux.

“One day I woke up and Juventus wanted me, another Manchester United and what I know is that there were approaches made,” he told TUDN.

“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.”

Jimenez has already netted four goals in eight Premier League games this season, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side currently sitting ninth.
