It has been argued by a number of pundits and former players that Man United need a goal scorer to be able to compete for titles against the likes of Man City and Liverpool in the coming season.
The opportunity might be presenting itself now.
The Red Devils are linked with Wolves striker Raul Jimenez a who has proven himself as a goal scorer and are reportedly hoping to snap him up before the end of the transfer window.
With Wolves breaking their transfer record to sign FC Porto youngster Fabio Silva last week, they could be willing to let go of Raul Jimenez to the Red Devils so as to recover the £35 million that was spent on the 18-year-old.
This is an opportunity for Man United to make their dream signing as several clubs in Europe are also linked with the player and are willing to make a move as long as they can meet the £60 million clause on the player who scored 44 goals in 99 appearances for Wolves.
The Mexico international forward could just be the perfect alternatives to the former Man City academy player who will not join the Old Trafford without a fee of £100 million as Borussia Dortmund have insisted.
