Wolves are reportedly lining up a replacement for Raul Jimenez, who is ‘on his way to Manchester United’, claims RTP.
It was something of a throwaway line from the Portuguese publication. The article is based on Wolves’ £27million move for Paulinho from Sporting Braga, claiming Nuno Espirito Santo is targeting a striker as they expect Jimenez not to be at the club next season.
Nuno will be reticent to lose his star striker, who has had another brilliant campaign both in the Premier League and in Wolves’ bid for the Europa League. Any offer to lure him from Molineux would have to be a significant one. And AS claim United’s biggest rivals for his signature, Juventus, are willing to do just that. They have reportedly tabled a £72million bid for the Mexican.
