Wolverhampton striker, Raul Jimenez, has confirmed that Manchester United made an official approach to bring him in during the summer transfer window.

Italian club, Juventus also declared an interest in signing the striker.

Jimenez, last month penned a new four-year contract with the Premier League side.

The Mexico international, was in a superb form during the 2019/2020 campaign after seeing the back of the net 27 times across all competitions.

29-year-old Jimenez said during an interview with TUDN, that he is happy at this present club but a move could still happen in future.

“One day I woke up and Juventus wanted me, another Manchester United and what I know is that there were approaches made.

“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,” Jimenez explained.
