Raul Jimenez says he's "open to everything" amid Man Utd transfer link

Wolves star Raul Jimenez admits he is “opening to everything” amid speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.

The Mexican ace scored 44 goals in 99 appearances in his first two seasons with the Molineux club to catch the Red Devils’ attention.

His form has been similarly impressive during the start of the 2020/21 campaign, with goals against Sheffield United and Manchester City in Wolves‘ opening Premier League matches.

But Jimenez – who is also a target for Serie A champions Juventus – made no secret of his desire to play Champions League football during a speech at the Mexican embassy in London.

Jimenez is in fine form with two goals in two games

“I have three more seasons left [on my contract],” said the 29-year-old. “If I stay here at Wolves, I’d be very happy.

“We know that anything can happen and there could be a change. I’m open to everything.

“I already had the luck to play some games [in the Champions League for former club Benfica]. It’s something incredible and it’s in my plans to play again, but first I have to do what I have to do with Wolves.”

Jimenez joined Wolves on loan in 2018 before the club signed him permanently one year later, and the striker admitted to not knowing where Wolverhampton was at the time of his initial move.

He added: “I did not know. The little I knew of England was London, Newcastle. I knew very little about England and I didn’t know anything about Wolverhampton.

“It was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It was difficult because I was with the national team in Denmark and that’s where the offer came to me.

“They told me about the club, about the project. I said ‘it’s not a well-known team’ and I had to investigate. It was an interesting choice and to this day I do not regret having taken it.”
