Speaking with TUDN (as replayed by TalkSport), Jiminez said:

"One day I woke up and Juventus wanted me, so did 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. 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."

United reportedly balked at Wolves' valuation of their No.9, with TalkSport reporting the asking price to be as high as €80million. The Red Devils signed free agent Edinson Cavani in the summer to fill the striker gap in the squad.

Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes feels Manchester United has the mentality to win the Premier League. The League trophy has eluded the Red Devils since Sir Alex Ferguson's last season at the club back in 2012. 

While talking on the UTD podcast, Fernandes said:

"For me, it doesn't matter about the other teams, people may say they're better than us, they have a better first eleven than us, guys who come from the bench are better. People can say what they think, I don't care. For a club like United, it's a long time since we won the Premier League. It's too long, I think."
"So you have to have in your mind -- all the players, all the staff -- we're here to win. And I think we have that mentality. I came to Manchester to win trophies. You're playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world. This club has made history in the past, an amazing history."
