Raul Jimenez Reveals Failed Man United, Juventus Approaches
Raul Jimenez has revealed that Italian champions Juventus and Manchester United failed with approaches to secure his services from Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer.
Jimenez has been Wolves’ main source of goals since joining initially on loan from Portuguese side Benfica in the summer of 2018.
An impressive first season at the Molineux stadium led to his loan move being made permanent at the start of the 2019/2020 season.
The 29-year-old Mexico international has so far scored 48 goals in 108 appearances for Nuno Esperito Santo’s men in all competitions and has started the current campaign with four goals in eight Premier League games.
"One day I woke up and Juventus wanted me, another Manchester United and what I know is that there were approaches made," Jimenez told TUDN.
"But an agreement was never reached and nothing was close. I'm very happy at Wolves."
"The truth is I am very happy in Wolverhampton. It's never wrong to be in a place where you are well but they know that I am not satisfied [with my form], I always look for more.
"It [a move] did not happen this time. If it happens at some point then it will have to be what is best for me, for Wolves and the team that I join.
"But I am very happy at Wolves and being considered a very important player."
Jimenez signed a new four-year contract with Wolves last month.
