Reported Manchester United target, Raul Jimenez, would prefer a move to Liverpool if he is indeed to leave Wolves this summer.
According to a report from the Manchester Evening News, Jimenez would choose a move to Merseyside over Old Trafford at this moment in time. That is, in part, thanks to his apparent admiration of Jurgen Klopp.
Jimenez has been in lethal form for Wolves this season, wracking up nearly 30 goals across all competitions.
That form has seen a number of big clubs show interest in the Mexican striker. So far, Wolves have shown they are keen to keep hold of their talisman.
Indeed, a report from Record, via the Sun, claims the Molineux club could demand up to £89m for Jimenez.
However, it appears any interest Manchester United have could be in vain, with the Red Devils at risk of losing out to one of their biggest rivals.
Further reports, however, have claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t interested in Jimenez, so it remains to be seen if United will make a move or not.

However good Raul Jimenez is, it’s hard to see Liverpool paying a club-record fee to land a 29-year-old striker.
His goals record is superb, however, Jurgen Klopp could be put off by his age. As Liverpool look to build for the future, spending the budget on a player you might get two or three seasons out of doesn’t seem worth it.
Furthermore, as the market is set for a crash this summer, Liverpool will be making sure any purchases they make are well thought out.
With that, it’s safe to say that Jimenez won’t be moving to Anfield or Old Trafford this summer.
