Manchester United have been linked with a move for Raul Jimenez and the forward has revealed he does not have a release clause in his current contract.
“They [Wolves] bought me for €40m (£34.5m), they won’t sell me for less,” he told the Mail.
“There is no release clause, but the clubs [in England], it is different how they are managed.”
There’s no denying that Jimenez was one of the stars of the season before the coronavirus pandemic brought a halt to the season last month, scoring 22 goals in all competitions.
The Mail’s report claims not just United, but Real Madrid have kept a close eye on the striker yet he is under contract until 2023 and it won’t be easy to get him this summer.
We know he can score goals in the Premier League but I’d be asking what other strikers are on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wishlist this summer. I’d be surprised if they went from wanting Erling Haaland to Jimenez and that’s not being disrespectful to the Wolves star…
If United can bring in a top class right-sided winger, our attack will be much stronger next season, and throw a goalscoring centre-forward on top of that and we’ll be very happy.
Perhaps if United broke the bank for Jadon Sancho this summer, Jimenez wouldn’t be a bad option to come in and compete for places with Anthony Martial.
