Manchester United have been backed in their quest to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez but they might need to wait till the summer according to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol.
According to him, it would be difficult for Manchester United to price the player away from Wolves in the middle of the season.
Wolves have had a good season until now and they are in the mix to qualify for the Champions League next season via the Premier League route and the Europa League.

Raul Jimenez has scored 34 goals in the Wolves shirt since joining the Midlands club on loan from Portuguese champions Benfica.
He spent the last campaign on loan at Wolves before the loan transfer was made a permanent one for a club-record deal of £30m.
Raul Jimenez scored 17 goals during the last campaign and has already added 17 more goals this season including 9 goals in 11 Europa League matches this term.
Another Sky Sports reporter Dhamesh Sheth questioned whether a move for an experienced player like 28-year-old Raul Jimenez won’t affect the youth policy been adopted by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United and that if his transfer will block the path of the young forwards at the club.
