Raul Jimenez flattered by Man Utd transfer links with Solskjaer searching for new striker, admits Wolves forward’s dad – The Sun

RAUL JIMENEZ is flattered by rumours linking him with some of the world's biggest teams – but is not planning on leaving Wolves yet, says his father.

Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid are all linked with the Mexican who has spearheaded the Molineux side's rapid rise from Premier League newcomers to regular European challengers since arriving in 2018.

And, while Jimenez is happy to continue pushing towards the Champions League with Wolves, the striker sees the speculation as a sign he must be doing something right.

Jimenez's father is quoted by Mexican outlet Medio Tiempo as saying: "Raul has always said so, that [the interest] is something very cool.

"He is very happy in his current team, hopefully getting into the Champions League positions and playing in the Europa League for now.

"Always for him, all of it is very gratifying. It is very cool to hear those comments."

Jimenez recently admitted that a move to Madrid or Barcelona would be of interest to him but his father has insisted there is currently no concrete chance of him switching clubs this summer.

For now, the 29-year-old's priority is being ready for the Premier League's restart with Wolves sat two points behind fifth-placed United – a possible Champions League spot if Manchester City are banned from next year's competition.
