Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez admits that he would not be able to turn down a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Raul Jimenez has insisted that he is happy at Wolverhampton Wanderers but would not be able to reject either Real Madrid or Barcelona if either club were to make him an offer.

The 28-year-old has been in impressive form for Wolves during the 2019-20 campaign, finding the back of the net on 22 occasions in 44 appearances, in addition to registering 10 assists.

A whole host of clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barca, have been linked with the Mexico international, who has admitted that he would not be able to turn down the opportunity to join either of Spain's two biggest clubs this summer.

"I find out [about transfer links] through social media. They have already put me at Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and every day comes out a new team that want me. I have to be calm. If they are talking about me, it is because I am doing things well; I would like to continue in England. I am happy, adapted and I like the idea [of staying in the Premier League]," Jimenez told ESPN.

"If you tell me that tomorrow an offer from Real Madrid or Barcelona comes, it is obvious that you do not let such an opportunity go, but if I stay here, I am fighting to qualify for the Champions League, for important things. Fighting for the title still seems difficult but we are in the Europa League round of 16. I think that I made the right decision to come here and I do not regret it.

"Leaving the doors open for anything is the most important thing. With Wolves we are fighting for the Champions League, I am happy. And I am an important player for the fans and for the team. I am fine, I do not close any doors, I am open to whatever comes but it does not stop me sleeping."

Wolves, though, are allegedly not prepared to sell the centre-forward for any price this summer, while they are also believed to have made the same decision on the futures of both Ruben Neves and Adama Traore.
