Press Association reporter, Simon Peach, has shutdown rumors of a Manchester United move for Wolves striker, Raul Jimenez, saying it’s unlikely.

Widespread reports littered the internet on Thursday, claiming the forward was close to joining the Red Devils, after Portuguese news outlet, RTP, reported that Wolves were about to sign Sporting Braga’s Paulinho as possible replacement.

However, when asked to comment on the rumour on Twitter yesterday, Peach simply replied, “Why would I talk about something that doesn’t appear to be true?”

The Jimenez to United reports will expectedly excite fans, after seeing him score 17 and assist 6 in the Premier League, but we doubt it’s true, if Peach is claiming it isn’t.
