Despite the January transfer window slamming shut at the beginning of the month, that doesn’t stop the press from speculating ahead to the summer and Wolverhampton Wanderers star Raul Jimenez is again being linked with a possible move to Manchester United at the end of the season.
The Birmingham Mail again cover the reports, but short of the unsubstantiated nonsense that has been claimed previously in the press, there are again no bones on their supposed interest an it seems the usual case of the media just trying to hock players to the so called top six clubs in the Premier League.
With the 28-year-old Mexican international again having another good season for us, plenty of Wolves fans would understandably ask why he’d even want to move to Old Trafford given they are on the slide and we’re on our way up, as I just can’t see it happening myself.
That won’t stop the media from self feeding on the rumours though, especially when you get the likes of Darren Bent making claims they simply can’t back up.
“From what I’m hearing, there will be a lot of top clubs trying to sign him in the summer. He could do a job at Chelsea. I can see Manchester United or Chelsea coming in for him. Jimenez knows the Premier League, so that is the advantage so he would be a great signing for either.”
It’s, unfortunately, the way of the world now and if it was Manchester United today, no doubt tomorrow it’ll be Chelsea as the above quote does the rounds. We simply have to trust Fosun to make the right decisions and continue to strengthen the group in the coming windows so we can keep moving forwards and once we replace the likes of United in the pecking order, maybe the media narrative will change.
