Jimenez bagged an impressive 27 goals across all competitions for Wolves last season, which seemingly caught the eye of bigger clubs.

The Red Devils were heavily linked with the Mexico international in the last transfer window, but ended up signing Edinson Cavani on a free transfer.

Juventus, meanwhile, went for Alvaro Morata on a season-long loan but Jimenez claims both European giants made approaches.

"One day I woke up and uventus wanted me, another Manchester United and what I know is that there were approaches made. But an agreement was never reached and nothing was close. I'm very happy at Wolves."

He added: "The truth is I am very happy in Wolverhampton. It's never wrong to be in a place where you are well but they know that I am not satisfied [with my form], I always look for more.

"It (a move) did not happen this time. If it happens at some point then it will have to be what is best for me, for Wolves and the team that I join. But I am very happy at Wolves and being considered a very important player."
