Premier League No.9 forward emerged as shock transfer target for Man Utd

Raul Jimenez is flattered by rumours linking him with a switch to Manchester United, according to his father.

The Wolves forward has managed to found back of the net 22 times in all competitions this campaign, spearheading his teams bid for a top-four place and helping them to continue progress in the Europa League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to strengthen his attacking line this summer, despite the progress made by France international star Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford this season.

Odion Ighalo’s future, meanwhile, stays uncertain and Raul Jimenez has been rumoured with a move to Old Trafford.

‘Raul has always said it’s something very cool (to hear of the interest).’ Jimenez’s father told  Medio Tiempo.

‘He’s very happy at his club, hopefully getting into positions for Champions League and Europa League at the moment. Always for him, all of that will be very gratifying, very cool to hear those comments.

‘Right now is the time of rumours, God willing the league hopefully resumes next month and that’s where we are right now.

‘The rest, there is nothing. He’s only commented on what he sees that they publish, but nothing at the moment.

‘Later, if there is something different, we will see. But now, yes, they are mere speculation and rumours.’
