Jimenez Chose Wolves Over China

Raul Jimenez has revealed he turned down a big-money move to China last summer in favour of joining Wolves. The Mexico international has proved to be a huge hit since arriving at Molineux on a season-long loan deal from Benfica, scoring nine goals and providing six assists in 26 Premier League appearances to date.

However, the 27-year-old has now revealed it could have been different for him had he taken up a lucrative offer from the Chinese Super League, but his desire to prove himself in Europe ultimately saw him end up at Wolves. “I’m in a good moment,” Jimenez was quoted as saying by the Birmingham Mail. “I had the belief and confidence that this was going to go well.

Regarding the offer from China, it was a lot of money but I knew it wasn’t the right moment. “Everyone has different reasons for making these choices, to return or stay in Europe. I simply had faith that I could make a name for myself in Europe. I think that it’s working, I’m doing well without giving up.”
Wolves supporters will be hoping Jimenez’s loan move is turned into a permanent deal during the summer. The club reportedly paid three million euros to secure his services on a temporary basis and it is believed they would have to stump up a further 38million euros to land him permanently.
