Manchester United’s Stance On Raul Jimenez

Manchester United’s priority striker this summer would be Raul Jimenez, according to Portuguese outlet Record (via Sport Witness).

This isn’t the first time that the Mexican has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, with Goal (via Football365) reporting that the Red Devils had enquired about his availability back in January.

Such interest in Jimenez is no doubt expected, given the numbers he has produced since arriving in England. The 29-year-old has registered twenty-six Premier League goals since the start of last season, assisting fourteen during that time too.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s desire for a new forward has been heavily speculated since summer 2019, with the club not directly replacing Romelu Lukaku. Odion Ighalo joined on loan in January, but there are underlying doubts over making the Nigerian a permanent signing.

As per Record, Jimenez is being identified as their top target, although a deal does look tricky. His contract doesn’t expire until 2023, with there being no reported release clause either. The player is represented by Jorge Mendes though, an agent that has guided many of his clients through the doors at Old Trafford in the past.
