Raúl Jiménez: "You can't let an offer from Madrid or Barcelona pass you by"

With 16 goals and 10 assists to his name this season, Wolves striker Rául Jiménez is one of the standout players of a Premier League season that was brought to a sudden halt in March as the world felt the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Mexican striker is now being linked with English giants Manchester United and Arsenal along with suggestions that he will end up with one of the Spanish giants, Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.

The Wolves striker spoke to ESPN and admitted that he hears about other interested clubs via social media: "I find out [about the links with other clubs] through social media," Jimenez said. "They have already put me at Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and every day comes out a new team that want [to sign] me.

The Mexican striker added: "If you tell me that tomorrow an offer from Real Madrid or Barcelona comes, it is obvious that you do not let such an opportunity go. But if I stay here I am fighting to qualify for the Champions League, for important things. Fighting for the title still seems difficult but we are in the Europe League round-of-16. I think that I made the right decision to come here [to Wolves] and I do not regret it.

"Leaving the doors open for anything is the most important thing. With Wolves we are fighting for a Champions League place, I am happy and I am an important player for the fans and for the team. I am fine, I do not close any doors, I am open to whatever comes but it does not stop me sleeping." concluded the striker.
