Raul Jimenez’s signature shots
While the transfer market is heating up with negotiations going on between clubs, MU is still revolving around the topic of buying Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho or not. However, “Reds” will not only buy Sancho, no matter who it is to buy is still a question mark.
RTP reports that Paulinho is coming from Braga to join Wolverhampton, but with the information that Raul Jimenez “is on his way to MU”
Recently in Portugal suddenly appeared information that striker Raul Jimenez “is on his way to MU”. This information appeared on the RTP news site, but the main topic of the news was about Wolverhampton, Jimenez’s team, about to recruit striker Paulinho from Braga to replace Jimenez, who was about to leave the club.
RTP in that news mainly mentioned that Wolverhampton had activated Paulinho’s contract liquidation clause to buy this player, ie the Molineux team was ready for Jimenez’s departure. RTP says Jimenez “is on his way to MU” in just one sentence and nothing more.
It is worth mentioning that the RTP is not a sports newspaper or an ordinary electronic newspaper, this is a news agency of the Portuguese government, operating on the state budget and rarely spreading rumors. RTP pays little attention to football and, if any, usually only reports about domestic football or each time Bruno Fernandes scores for MU.
However, looking at MU, Juventus also pursued Jimenez. La Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper said that Wolves bought Paulinho was to make way for Jimenez to join the Serie A champions without mentioning MU. Juventus previously offered 50 million euros but was rejected and now they have agreed to raise the price to 65 million euros, with 15 million euros on extra terms, to convince Wolves.
Jimenez has scored 26 goals & 10 assists in 53 games for Wolves this season
Jimenez has been in contact with Juventus for a while, but he is rarely mentioned by the press in transfer rumors about MU. Both teams, though, have a certain need for a striker position so it wouldn’t be surprising if they kept an eye on Jimenez.
With Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo is not a striker, so Juventus is looking for an authentic “number 9” instead of having coach Maurizio Sarri temporarily use Paulo Dybala as a “fake number 9” or for Gonzalo Higuain to start. As for MU, Anthony Martial is a striker, but the French striker is not a good choice when MU needs to play with a header, and Odion Ighalo will leave the club early next year and MU can not count on anyway. Continue on them with a schedule of up to 60 matches.
Jimenez has scored 26 goals & 10 assists in 53 matches for Wolves this season, showing his effectiveness in both teamwork and finishing thanks to his good shot power and body shape to make walls or take advantage of the results. cross.
