Raul Jimenez has been urged by Mexico boss Gerard 'Tata' Martino to sign for Manchester United over Juventus if he leaves Wolves this summer.

Jimenez, 29, joined Wolves in 2018 on loan from Benfica before making his switch permanent the following April.

The Mexico international scored 13 Premier League goals during his first season in England, and has improved on that this term with 15 - and 24 in all competitions - to earn transfer interest from some of Europe's top clubs.

United and Juventus have both been linked with the forward, and Jimenez's national coach believes Old Trafford would be a better move given the amount of competition for starting roles in Turin.

"Looking at it from the outside today I cannot see a specialist No. 9 like Raul at United," Martino told ESPN's Futbol Picante.

"There are many forwards like [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial and the boy who now plays as right winger: [Mason] Greenwood but since Romelu Lukaku left I can't see a pure number nine like Raul.
