Raul Jimenez has emerged as the latest transfer target for Real Madrid. If these reports are factual, Wolves are in serious trouble of losing their most lethal asset.
HItman Jimenez is the new name to get mentioned with the biggest football club in the world, Real Madrid. Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus, things have noticeably not been the same.
The Spanish side is set on this Zidane rebuild and it seems he [Raul] he might be a part of it now. They are looking to strengthen in many areas, if not, all areas on the pitch. This is the sole reason every EPL player or player with five stars to their name are being linked with a dream move to Madrid.
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Paul Pogba, Kai Havertz, and Erling Braut Haaland are all elite names in the game today and have all been rumoured targets for the Galácticos. This ageing Madrid squad must be chopped up and replenished.
Jimenez would be worth every penny

Firstly, a transfer to Madrid would certainly be a colossal move up in his footballing career and by all means, he deserves the link as well as the move. It’s almost unreal that no other heavy hitters have been linked with a transfer for the striker.
Since taking part in the Premier League the Mexican sicario has been at the forefront of everything deadly at the Molineux. He has led the Wanderers to a seventh-place finish on their return to Premier League action last season.
Adding to the marvel of the Jimenez era, his guidance to a seventh-place spot, helped Wolves secure their first European push in 38 years. WOW! Move onto his second season after signing a permanent deal with the Wolverhampton club, they now fight in the Europa League’s round of 16, with an away goal advantage against Olympiacos.
He will add quality and could get into the starting 11 with ease at Los Blancos. He is undoubtedly a clutch player that shows up on many occasions. This season he has contributed heavily to the club’s success with 16 goals and nine assists in 38 appearances, across all competitions.
His second EPL term has been almost a mirror image of his first with Wolves. Quite frankly, he has already bettered last season’s tally. This has necessarily helped them to a consecutive top-half finish, as they place a spot higher in sixth place amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Would he be able to deny the most successful side in all of Europe? Not a flying chance in this world or others. The last Raul the club owned was a major success and became a club legend after his time ran out. There is nothing in this world that suggested he cannot emulate the Real Raul of the past.
After recently signing a permanent deal with the Wanderers he could cost Los Blancos about £30-£60 million. At 28-years-old, he offers his prime years. Exactly what the Spanish giants like in a player.
