Manchester United icon Rio Ferdinand has urged his former club to leap ahead of Juventus in the chase for Wolves forward Raul Jimenez. The Mexican striker has scored 17 goals – leading the way for Wanderers and putting him firmly on the map of some of the biggest clubs in England and Europe.
Rio Ferdinand said “I think Wolves will do well to keep hold of him, 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. 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 like that (against Burnley) out of nothing.”
