Wolves star Raul Jimenez has revealed that a chance to join Barcelona or Real Madrid would be too good to turn down. The striker spoke to ESPN Deportes about his future and commitment to Wolves.
The Mexico international joined Wolves in 2018. Jiménez has 26 goals and 13 assists in the league since the start of the 2018/19 season. His fine performances for Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have seen him being linked with top clubs in England and across Europe.
"I find out [about the links with other clubs] through social media," Jimenez said. "They have already put me at Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and every day comes out a new team that want [to sign] me."
Jimenez admits, he is happy at Wolves but feels happy to being linked with other big clubs: "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]."
The Mexico international says it would be hard to reject a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid.
"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 [to Wolves] and I do not regret it," he said.
"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."
Wolves were in sixth place in the Premier League before the competition was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 28-year-old has a contract at Molineux until 2023.
