Transfer: Favorites Man Utd would financially trump rivals to sign £80million star – Report

According to an exclusive report published by Mirror Sport yesterday, the Molineux outfit may end up losing two star players in the form of Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez.

The UK based outlet have claimed that the Spaniard is tempted to join the Merseysiders, on the other hand, the North American could end up moving to Old Trafford. It is mentioned that Solskjaer likes the 29-year-old striker, who would be looking for one last big money move of his career.

The former SL Benfica forward has been in brilliant form for Wolverhampton Wanderers under the guidance of Espirito Santo.

In all competitions this term, he has so far featured in 44 games and directly contributed (Transfermarkt) in no fewer than 32 goals (22 goals and 10 assists).

For the senior national side, he has made 82 appearances thus far and found the net 23 times.

Last season, Lukaku was United’s first choice striker, who was sold to Inter Milan in the summer and Solskjaer has not really replaced him as yet.

The Norwegian manager has preferred Anthony Martial in the CF role this season and the Frenchman, who is not a natural No.9, has only scored 16 goals in all competitions, 11 in the PL.

So, Man United do have to improve their strike-force in the summer and Jimenez would be a quality addition. The dilemma, he is going to turn 30 next year and reports (Tutto Sport) suggest that he would cost at least 60 million euros (£53million).
