United refute news of move for Wolves striker

Manchester United have distanced themselves from suggestions that they have agreed a deal to sign striker Raul Jiménez from Wolves.

The Mexican has had a fine season for Wolves, scoring 26 goals in all competitions, including 157 in the Premier League.

That made him the highest ever Mexican goal scorer in a single campaign in top-flight football in England, passing the record set by a former United player Javier Hernández, and has resulted in him attracting attention from a number of clubs.

They include United but the Manchester club insist that there have been no talks or discussions with the player or his agent.

Jiménez joined Wolves from Benfica in 2018 initially on loan. Ten months later they chose to exercise their option to buy, acquiring him for a club-record £30 million.

He has made 82 appearances for Mexico, scoring 24 times for them, and heling them win the CONCACAF Gold Cup last season.
