Raul Jimenez TEAMtalk

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has admitted that he would not be able to turn down Real Madrid or Barcelona, but says he is calm about links with bigger Premier League clubs.

Jimenez has been a success story for Wolves since joining them for their first season back in the Premier League in 2018, and has continued his impressive form this term, having completed his permanent transfer to Molineux last summer.

The 28-year-old Mexican has subsequently been linked with a high-profile move to somewhere like Manchester United, although his response to such links has so far been mixed.

Now, Jimenez has opened up on what he has heard about his future, but admitted he still has a lot to achieve at Wolves.

“I find out [about transfer links] through social media,” Jimenez told ESPN Deportes. “They have already put me at Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and every day comes out a new team that want me.

“I have to be calm. If they are talking about me it is because I am doing things well; I would like to continue in England. I am happy, adapted and I like the idea [of staying in the Premier League].

“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 and I do not regret it.

“Leaving the doors open for anything is the most important thing. With Wolves we are fighting for the Champions League, 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.”
