Rio Ferdinand ‘wouldn’t say no’ to taking Raul Jimenez at Old Trafford and believes the Wolves forward would offer ‘something different’ to Man Utd.
The Mexico international has been in stunning form this season as he has managed to found back of the net 17-times in the Premier League while also managed to create six chance to his teammates.
Jimenez’s form has seen him to be rumoured with a switch to top European teams including Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United.
Despite Anthony Martial finding his feet in the No.9 spot at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still believed to be keen on recruiting a more traditional forward in the summer transfer window.
And 20-times English champions legend Ferdinand feels Raul Jimenez can provide the focal point in an attack that they have been missing. ‘I think Wolves will do well to keep hold of him,’ Ferdinand told BT Sport. ‘I think he’s a player with immense talent and I think his goalscoring record over the last two years has been really good.
‘Before that, his record was a bit shady, but he has come to the Premier League and hit the ground running. He’s been a breath of fresh air.
‘As you can tell, he seems a great character around the place, and for a top club, I wouldn’t be surprised if they are sniffing.
‘We’ve seen it in the media reports in the last few days that clubs are looking.’
When asked if his former team should make a move for Jimenez, Ferdinand said: ‘I wouldn’t say no at all. I think he’s something different to what they’ve got.
‘What I like about him is he scores all types of goals.
‘He’s at the back post heading things and bullying defenders, and he can score tremendous goals out of nothing.’
