Man Utd target Raul Jimenez ‘open to everything’ on transfer front but insists he will not try to force Wolves exit – The Sun
WOLVES' striker Raul Jimenez says he is 'open to everything' when asked about a move away from the Molineux.
The highly-regarded Mexican has been linked with a move but is still tied to a long-term contract.
The 28-year-old's current deal ends in 2023 which gives Wolves a strong bargaining position.
He is not actively in search of a deal elsewhere, but if any offers are made in the upcoming transfer market, he could consider it.
He told ESPN Mexico: ''One is always open to everything, but I have a contract until 2023.''
Jimenez has netted 21 times for Wolves so far this season, and has gained the attention of Premier League giants Manchester United.
Talk of a return to Spain is also circulating for the former Atletico Madrid frontman.
With the Tokyo Olympic Games around the corner, no doubt he would welcome the chance of playing for his national team.
He featured in the 2018 World Cup in Russia and last year's Gold Cup, but has expressed his keen desire of having a part in playing for his home country, adding: ''It's always a wish to go to the Olympic games, more considering that I already have an Olympic gold.
''It's a dream that I'd like to fulfil again and I'd be one of the team's reinforcement men.
''First I have to wait and then, if there's a call, talk to the club.''
Jimenez has scored just four times in 2020 so far, but played a strong match against Norwich where Nuno Espirito Santo's men came out 3-0 winners.
Wolves travel to Tottenham for their Premier League clash on Sunday, where Jimenez will feature.
Spurs won't give them an easy run as they continue to look for a top-four finish.
United meanwhile are desperate to add more goals to their front line, despite the signing of Bruno Fernandes in January.
