Manchester United will fight Juventus for the signature of wolf striker Raul Jimenez, according to The Sunday Times.
The Red Devils are closely associated with the Mexican, who scored an impressive 22 goals this season and has provided 10 assists in 44 games for the Midlands Club.
Jimenez has already improved his 2018/19 record by scoring 17 goals and delivering 8 assists in the same number of games.
This has caught the eye of Serie A giants who "want to replace Gonzalo Higuaín, who has only scored five Serie A goals this season and is still the club's third highest earner," said The Times.
"Juventus believes they can cut their labor costs and win a more productive striker."
"It is believed that the Serie A champion, along with United, has asked about the availability of the Mexican international as soon as the transfer window opens again."
According to the report, wolves are open to selling the Mexican as long as they make a "substantial profit" on the £ 34m paid to Benfica a year ago after a successful loan year.
The Red Devils are keen to include a striker in their ranks, as Odion Ighalo's loan contract expires on June 30. There has been speculation as to whether they will buy the Nigerian immediately, but the exorbitant £ 20m price that Shanghai Shenhua is said to have turned upside down makes it unlikely.
While Jimenez would cost significantly more, he's almost two years younger and might offer the club three to five years of service as Mason Greenwood is prepared to take on the role.
According to Sport Witness, "Wolves consider it" practically guaranteed "that Raul Jimenez will leave the club at the end of the season."
They are reportedly returning to Benfica to replace the man they signed with them in the form of Carlos Vinicius.
With the tax and image rights benefits that Italian clubs can offer, and Juve, who is sure to qualify for next season's Champions League, United must win the Jimenez & # 39; signature race. However, they are currently stronger than the Italians in terms of transfer fee and salary that they may be able to offer.
United may have to end its Premier League season for neutral reasons as the authorities try to keep players safe. How much do you know about the games the Red Devils have never played at home or away in the past? Take our quiz to find out.
