Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has revealed he was never close to leaving the Midland club to Manchester United or any other club after he was constantly linked with a summer move away from the Molineux.

He told TUDN: “During vacations or a transfer window a new team will come out every day, what I knew was about the news, rumours.

“One day I’d wake up and Juventus loved me, another it’d be Manchester United, and what I know is that there were approaches, but an agreement was never reached, nothing close, but I’m very good at Wolves.”

The player has signed a contract extension with Nuno Espirito Sanchez’s side to end talks of a possible move.
