Breaking News ! Manchester United insist there is nothing in reports from Portugal that Wolves striker Raul Jimenez is 'on the way' to the club this summer. Reports this week had suggested the impressive forward was close to signing for United, but MEN Sport understand the reports are inaccurate and the 29-year-old is not close to joining the club. Meanwhile, United are relaxed about their pursuit of Jadon Sancho amid attempts by Borussia Dortmund to pressurise them into making an early bid. A report in Germany this week claimed United had submitted a £90million offer for priority target Sancho, 20, but the club denied any bid had been made on the first day of the summer transfer window and Dortmund figures have privately admitted the same.
