Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants Manchester United top target Raul Jimenez to join him at Juventus this summer. The Serie A side are currently looking for a strike parter for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Wolverhampton Wanderers could lose a number of their star players after they failed to qualify for the Champions League or Europa League next season. Jimenez scored 27 goals across all competitions this campaign as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side finished seventh in the Premier League table.

According to Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are interested in signing the 29-year-old, who is being closely tracked by United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has openly admitted that he wants a new striker at Old Trafford to lighten the goalscoring burden on Anthony Martial’s shoulders.

However, Juventus are also in the market for extra firepower and they want somebody who can link up well with Ronaldo.

Gazzetta dello Sport claims Jimenez is that man – although the Serie A side may need to balance the transfer with a series of sales.

Wolves would apparently demand £90m for the former Atletico Madrid and Benfica star.
