Manchester United have been linked with Raul Jimenez for some time and the latest reports going on in the media are positive.
According to RTP, Wolves are close to signing Portuguese striker Paulinho from Braga in order to replace Jimenez, who is on his way to secure a move to Manchester United.
The Portuguese outlet have mentioned that Nuno Espirito Santo wants his compatriot at the Molineux and they are hiring his services for a fee of 30 million euros.
Paulinho started 27 fixtures in the recently concluded Liga Nos campaign and directly contributed (Transfermarkt) in 24 goals (17 goals and 7 assists).
As far as Raul Jimenez is concerned, the Mexican international has been a superstar for Wolves. In the current campaign, so far, he has netted 26 goals and provided 10 assists in all competitions.
The West Midlands side have the advantage of an away goal going into the second leg of their R16 Europa League tie with Olympiacos. If they end up winning the competition, then they will play in the next season’s Champions League.
Last summer, we sold Lukaku to Inter Milan and since then, we have used a natural winger, Anthony Martial, in the center forward role.
We need to sign a proven quality out and out striker and in such a scenario, Raul Jimenez, who has been a clinical finisher for Wolves, would be a top addition.
However, it must be taken into consideration that the Mexican star is going to turn 30 in less than 12 months and his market value is very high as well. As per Tutto Sport, Wolves value their prized asset at 60 million euros (£54million).
In your opinion, is Jimenez good enough to improve the strike-force at Old Trafford?
