Man Utd may have received big Raul Jimenez transfer boost thanks to Arsenal

Published

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may have handed Manchester United a big boost if they opt to move to Raul Jimenez this summer as his brace against Chelsea in the FA Cup final yesterday stopped Wolves securing Europa League football.

Mikel Arteta won his first trophy since becoming Arsenal boss as Aubameyang scored twice in a 2-1 win at Wembley.

That means the Gunners, who finished eighth in the Premier League table, have qualified for next season’s Europa League.

If Chelsea had come out on top yesterday then the extra European spot would have been awarded to the team which finished seventh in the table – which was Wolves.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side harboured outside hopes of finishing in the Champions League spots prior to the coronavirus break.

The Midlanders gave it a good shot but ultimately fell short and were beaten to sixth place by Tottenham on goal difference.

Many of Wolves’ top players have been linked with moves away from the Molineux this summer.

A lack of European football may be the deciding factor in some of their stars wanting to move onto pastures new.

Jimenez has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent days with reports in Portugal suggesting a transfer was close to being completed.

Red Devils insiders dismissed those claims but if they were to make a move it would now be much easier thanks to Arsenal’s FA Cup success.

“If you think you’ve got a divine right to be playing every game and are doing so well that we’re not going to look for players to replace you, you’re in the wrong place.

“I’ve been here myself for so many years as a striker and Teddy Sheringham comes in, Dwight Yorke comes in, Ruud van Nistelrooy comes in, Wayne Rooney comes in.

“We’ve always got to look at improving, and if they don’t improve, we might have to look somewhere else to get better because we have to be better. We’re too far away from where we need to be and want to be.”

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta approves club’s first summer signing as deal to be confirmed

Arsenal are set to confirm the signing of Willian from Chelsea after Mikel Arteta gave his approval to a three-year deal. The Brazilian will put pen to paper when his current deal expires after tomorrow’s Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.

“It’s a no-brainer, an absolute no-brainer,” Groves said on talkSPORT.

“You say he’s 31, in our day you were probably coming to the end of your career at 30, 31 as an outfield player.

“Now because they look after themselves, he’ll be playing until he’s 33 or 34.

“And if you look at his injury record, over the last seven years he’s averaged 33 or 34 games a season, so he’s not injury prone, he’s consistent, he’s got a winning mentality, he will buy into the way that Arteta wants to play, his attitude is good, he plays in the Premier League, so the risk is low and reward is very, very low.

“Is he better than what Arsenal have got at the moment [in that position?] I’d say yes.”

Willian would be Arsenal’s first major signing of the summer transfer window.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey is also wanted, while a central defender is on the agenda.

Willian missed last weekend’s FA Cup final due to injury and will not feature for Chelsea against Bayern on Saturday.

Arsenal urged to change Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang contract offer after club developments

“Don’t increase wages when people are losing their jobs at your club – offer him the same deal.

“Arsenal should explain to Aubameyang: ‘You’re a massive foundation of the club, you’re a massive asset to us, but this is what’s happening and you need to understand that. We love you, the fans love you, we want you to say, but it’s wrong for us to offer you more money when we’re laying off 55 people’.”

O’Hara is disappointed large transfer fees and wages are still being paid following the coronavirus pandemic.

“The problem I’ve got is footballers are still in their own little bubble,” O’Hara added.

“He’s loved there already and he’s got the fans on board.

“Could he find a way of going back there? That for me would be great for Tottenham.

“Even if it’s for two or three years, go back to where you made yourself, enjoy yourself and help Tottenham get back to being competitive.”
