These Manchester United fans divided on signing Wolves striker Raul Jimenez

Manchester United’s rumoured interest in Wolves striker Raul Jimenez is splitting the fanbase on social media. 

Portuguese public service broadcaster RTP published an extraordinary report on Friday suggesting United were about to complete the transfer of the prolific frontman.

This speculation was quickly dismissed, with the Manchester Evening News reporting that United sources have said there is ‘nothing in’ the rumours.

However, the MEN did acknowledge that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an admirer of Jimenez, who has established himself as one of the best strikers in the Premier League.

The Mexican international netted 26 goals in 53 Wolves appearances this term as he helped the Midlands club to a seventh placed finish.

Anthony Martial has enjoyed his best goalscoring season at Old Trafford, diminishing Solskjaer’s need for a proven goalscorer.

Martial scored the same amount of goals in the league as Jimenez (17), despite missing an eight week period through injury.

But United still lack goalscoring threat when the electric Frenchman is not on the pitch and an addition of a quality forward could provide strong competition in attacking areas.

Solskjaer has Odion Ighalo as his striker back up until January but used the Nigerian sparingly after the restart.

Plenty of United fans on Twitter have weighed in on the debate surrounding Jimenez:
