Raul Jimenez has been prolific since he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Benfica last year.
Jimenez has said in the past that he is happy to be at Wolves - where his current deal expires in 2023.
Wolves great Steve Bull has told forward Raul Jimenez not to seal a move to Premier League giants Manchester United.
Jimenez has been prolific since he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Portuguese side Benfica for a reported fee of £30m last year.
And, according to sources, United, Arsenal and LaLiga side Real Madrid are among elite clubs in Europe monitoring the Mexican's situation at the Molineux.
Bull, who found the net 306 times for The Wanderers during a 13-year spell with the West Midlands club, reckons the 28-year-old doesn’t need a transfer as he is on course to win trophies with Nuno Espirito Santos' Wolves. “I cannot see any reason why he would want to leave,” Bull wrote in the Shropshire Star. “Jimenez can score goals for fun as he has the talent, the work-rate and – most importantly – the supply.

“It is not as if he has been running his socks off, doing a lot of work for the team, and getting nothing in return. He gets chances in every single game he plays, so no wonder he is happy being here. “Real Madrid, of course, have been linked with Jimenez in the Spanish press. And even though he has come out and outlined his commitment to Wolves, such speculation is likely to continue over the next few months.” Bull added: “It shows how far we have come when our players are being associated with such teams.
“The ultimate question, though, is whether Jimenez can fulfill his ambitions – winning silverware – at Wolves? For me at least, the answer to that is an emphatic yes.”
The Mexico striker has been a key member at the Molineux club and his 13 goals and six assists have helped move them to sixth spot in the Premier League table.
