Man United fans rave about Raul Jimenez

Wolves were held to a 0-0 draw against Leicester City on Friday evening for the second time this season as VAR controversy once again dominated the post match narrative.

The hosts were cruelly deprived of what appeared to be an opening goal from Willy Boly, with VAR intervening and ruling Pedro Neto offside in the build up to the goal.

Raul Jimenez missed a late opportunity to score a dramatic winner when he diverted his header wide from a glorious position, but that didn’t prevent Man United fans from raving about his performance.

According to reports earlier this year, the Mexico international is a target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side following an impressive 18 month spell in the Premier League.

And with that in mind, it’s no wonder the Red Devils faithful were taking an interest in his display on Friday, with fans citing his buildup play and positional awareness as two of his most defining qualities.

Naturally, some supporters went a step further and suggested he’s a player the club should be looking to sign on a permanent basis in the summer.

One fan claims he’s worth a fee in excess of £60m, but would Ed Woodward be willing to sanction a deal of that value for a 28-year-old who struggled to make the grade at Atletico Madrid?

That seems unlikely if he’s only going to be an alternative to Anthony Martial, as another fan concludes.

Finally, this supporter went as far to draw parallels between Jimenez and the former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Would Jimenez be better than Martial at CF?
