Manchester United: Fans rave over Raul Jimenez as reports link Wolves star to Old Trafford

Manchester United: Fans rave over Raul Jimenez as reports link Wolves star to Old Trafford - Manchester United Transfer Rumours

As the transfer window approaches, Manchester United have once again been linked to some of the world’s best strikers. 

Indeed, the Red Devils have already made the first move by signing Odion Ighalo. Man United have reached an agreement with Shanghai Shenhua to extend his contract after he impressed on loan at the club he supported as a boy, registering four goals in eight appearances so far.

Nevertheless, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly interested in Wolves forward Raul Jimenez as well, who recently admitted that the recent speculation is “very cool.”

Ever since he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers for a club record £30m from Benfica in 2018, Jimenez impressed the crowds at Molineux prior to the nationwide lockdown imposed as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

The 29-year-old has scored 13 goals in 29 games in the Premier League for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, taking 3.4 shots per game, averaging 1.4 key passes and completing 1.8 dribbles per game on average (via WhoScored).

He has received a higher statistical rating than Anthony Martial for his performances this season, as per WhoScored. However, the Mexican, who plays alongside ex-United striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez at international level, is currently valued at £36m according to Transfermarkt.

As it stands, Solskjaer has other areas he urgently needs to prioritise, and he may choose to give the Mexican a miss.

Naturally, many United fans gushed over Jimenez’s “quality” comments, with one supporter tweeting that he is “better than Martial”.
