Mexican striker Raul Jimenez, linking up with Manchester United, insisted that he was happy at his current club Wolverhampton at the moment.
Jimenez, 29, is enjoying another prolific season, scoring 24 goals for Wolves in 47 games leading to apparent United interest. Jimenez helped Wolves sit sixth in the Premier League, attracting interest from elsewhere as well as his teammate Adama Traore.
But the Mexico international said he was happy at the Molineux, where he first arrived on loan from Benfica in 2018:
“It feels very good. Two years here have been unbelievable, I think we made that connection since the beginning, since my transfer here,” Jimenez said, via the club’s website. I’m very happy to be here.”
He also spoke of his pride in connecting with Wolves’ domestic rivals, with his price tag claiming to have risen to around the £ 90 million ($111 m) mark.
The Mexican is currently enjoying being swept along for the ride, and when discussing the speculation he is generating with, there is no definitive call for his future offered yet again.
“I’m extremely happy with the Wolves here first of all,” Jimenez said last month. “I am in a place where we made an incredible connection from the very first moment.
In recent months, Jimenez has kept the exit door open, it would be difficult to ignore any interest from Barcelona or Real Madrid. The Red Devils, especially, seem to be in hot pursuit of him:
“I am no stranger to all that rumours, every day a new team comes out, every day a new offer comes out, I do not know how many millions.
“It is good to know that they are talking about you, but what I have to do to make that happen is to continue doing my job here with the Wolves.”
The forward also applauded Traore, who has scored four goals in the league this season and provided nine assists:
“Every striker wants a team-mate with his conditions. He can cross from anywhere, you know he’s going to be at the final line and he’s going to cross, so you have to be there at the right time to score.
“We train on it in the week. We talk to each other before the games, or in the training sessions, so we know where we’re going to be, his crossing and where I have to move.
“It’s not a coincidence, it’s something we train and work for.”
Wolves are next in action when they host Arsenal on Saturday.
