The Mexican international plundered 27 goals last term while setting up 10 more in all competitions. He has already scored four in nine games in 2020/21.

Adding him to our frontline would have given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer more options. The 29-year-old isn’t just an ace goalscorer but also links up well with his teammates when needed.

United were far from the only club to enquire about him. Juventus also made approaches to secure his services. (h/t Daily Mail)

“I know is that there were approaches made. But an agreement was never reached and nothing was close.”

Despite being happy to stay put at Wolves, Jimenez has not ruled out a move away in the future. However, any deal will have to be suitable for all parties involved. (h/t Daily Mail)

Given his age, it remains to be seen if United will return for him in the future.
