Raul Jimenez confirms Man Utd approach & won't rule out future move
Raul Jimenez has confirmed that Manchester United made contact over signing him in the summer and has refused to rule out a move to Old Trafford in the future.
Indeed, United have been looking at signing Jimenez since January 2020, with Goal having reported that the Premier League side made enquiries over the availability ofJimenez and team-mate Ruben Neves.
Solskjaer's side ultimately decided to bring in Odion Ighalo on loan from Shanghai Shenhua on January 31, while they also moved for Edinson Cavani on a free transfer in the most recent transfer window.
Jimenez, meanwhile,committed his future to Wolves by penning a new three-and-a-half-year contract at the beginning of October although his latest comments suggest that he would be open to a move away from Molineux.
He toldTUDN:"One day I woke up andJuventuswanted me,anotherManchester Unitedandwhat I know is that there were approaches made. But an agreement was never reached and nothing was close. I'm very happyatWolves."
He added: "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.
"It (a move) did not happen this time. If it happens at some point then itwill have to be what isbest for me, for Wolves and the team that I join.But I am very happy at Wolves and being considered a very important player."
Nuno Espirito Santo's side are currently ninth in the Premier League table, with Jimenez having scored four league goals in eight appearances at the start of the 2020-21 campaign.
