The name of Raúl Jiménez continues to give something to talk about in international football. The Mexican forward continues to be one of the most desirable players in the Premier League.
And it is that in the last hours, the sports portal Don Balon announced that Real Madrid has begun negotiations with Wolverhampton to take over the services of the “Mexican Wolf”.
The arrival of Raúl Jiménez to the merengue team could place him in the history of Mexican football, since it would match what was achieved by Javier “Chicharito” Hernández and the legendary Hugo Sánchez.
According to the Spanish media, the offer of the Real Madrid leaders would amount to 50 million euros, 10 million more than the price that Jiménez has marked on the Transfermarkt portal.

In early September, Raúl Jiménez was named Wolverhampton's Best Player of the 2019-2020 Season. It should be remembered that the Mexican finished with a record of 27 touchdowns and 10 assists in all the competitions he played.
For months, several international media have placed the Aztec striker in the orbit of teams such as Manchester United and Juventus, however, everything indicates that the clubs did not reach an agreement, since Jiménez reported with the Wolves for their preseason.
The hypothetical arrival of Jiménez to Real Madrid would represent the departure of Luka Jovic, a player who failed to stand out in the team led by Zinedine Zidane.
As if that were not enough, the Mexican striker started his participation in the 2020-2021 Premier League on the right foot. On September 14, he scored the first goal of the match between Wolverhampton and Sheffield United.
RAÚL WITH SPANISH PAST
After triumphing with the Águilas del América, Raúl Jiménez emigrated to Spain, specifically with Atlético de Madrid. Jiménez's numbers with the colchoneros were not the best and he ended up looking for other opportunities abroad.
During the 2014-2015 season, the Mexican forward scored 2 goals in 28 games and managed to add 2 assists.
In the end, Jiménez went to Portuguese football with Benfica and later with Wolverhampton, a team where he exploited his full potential.
Last August, Fabio Capello, the legendary Italian coach, recognized the talent and qualities of Jiménez on the inside of the playing field.
The Italian strategist was sincere and ruled that the Americanist youth squad could be an ideal reinforcement for Juventus, since it would suit his style of play very well for next season, which will be directed by Andrea Pirlo.
He even came to compare Jiménez with forward Karim Benzema. The realities of Raúl Jiménez and Karim Benzema are very similar. In 48 games, which correspond to the 2019-2020 season, the Frenchman added 27 annotations and 11 assists with Real Madrid. The Mexican, meanwhile, in 55 games also scored 27 goals and added 10 assists.
