Current Wolves ace Raul Jimenez just dealt a blow in a potential move to Manchester United this summer, revealing he doesn’t have a release clause in his contract.
The Mexican international has been linked to Tottenham, Arsenal, United, and Real Madrid but without a release clause, it could be very expensive to retain the striker’s rights.
“[Wolves] bought me for €40million (£34.5m), they won’t sell me for less,” Jimenez told the Sun.
“There is no release clause, but with clubs [in England], it is different how they are managed.”
Most footballers coveted that opportunity to play Champions League, not Jimenez, saying in a Facebook post that Champions League play has no bearing if he stays with the Wolves or signs with another team:
“I have a contract until 2023. It’s not that we have to qualify for the Champions League in order to stay.”
Jimenez had scored 22 goals across all competitions, helping the Wolves to the Europa League last-16 and sixth in the Premier League table until all football stopped because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Granted, with the entire football world on hold and whether there will even be a summer transfer window will determine if Jimenez or any footballer transfer teams this year.
