Wolves star Raul Jimenez explains stance on future amid Man Utd transfer interest

Wolves star Raul Jimenez has insisted he’s happy at the club despite interest from Manchester United. The Mexico international has emerged as a target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Norwegian targets the Premeir League title next season. But Jimenez has insisted he’s happy to be playing at Molineux – and backed his side to finish in the top four.

United were first linked with Jimenez in January, shortly after missing out on Erling Haaland to Borussia Dortmund.

And, since then, talk of the Mexico international moving to Old Trafford has continued to gather momentum.

Jimenez has sparkled for Wolves in the top flight this season, scoring 13 goals in the Premier League and nine times in the Europa League.

But the 28-year-old has shut down talk of a move to United by insisted he’s happy at his current club.

He said: “It’s incredible to be part of this team and part of this family. I’m really enjoying playing here.

Jimenez also expressed a desire to see Wolves finish in the top four and secure Champions League football for next season.

He added: “We know it’s big. This is our second season in the Premier League but we know we can do it and we know we can fight for it.

“I don’t think we will be disappointed if we don’t achieve it but now we can see it there, we can do it.

Jimenez previously claimed that his contract at Wolves contained no release clause.

He said: “[Wolves] bought me for €40million (£34.5m), they won’t sell me for less.

“There is no release clause, but with clubs [in England], it is different how they are managed.”

And he’d also fuelled talk of a move to United by saying: “One is always open to everything, but I have a contract until 2023.”

United want to sign a new striker this summer.

And that’s irrespective of whether or not they turn Odion Ighalo’s loan deal into a permanent transfer.

Erling Haaland could be chased if Borussia Dortmund indicate a willingness to sell the 19-year-old, who has bagged 12 goals from 11 games since his January move to the Westfalenstadion.

And Timo Werner and Moussa Dembele are under consideration amid their fine form for RB Leipzig and Lyon this season.

Edinson Cavani has also been linked but the PSG star is more likely to move to La Liga, Italy or Argentina instead.
