​Mexico boss Martino tells Raul Jimenez to join Man Utd over Juventus

Mexico boss Tata Martino has told star Raul Jimenez where to play next season.

The Wolves striker is a much wanted property in the transfer market.

He has 15 goals this season and is a key reason why Wolves are battling for a Champions League spot.

He is being linked to teams like Juventus and Manchester United, and Martino thinks the latter is the club for Raul.

"Looking at it from the outside today I cannot see a specialist No. 9 like Raul at United," Martino said on ESPN show Futbol Picante.

"There are many forwards like [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial and the boy who now plays as right winger: [Mason] Greenwood but since Romelu Lukaku left I can't see a pure No. 9 like Raul.

"At Juventus he will have more of a fight because [Cristiano] Ronaldo shares the inside of the pitch with whoever plays alongside him, with [Paulo] Dybala or with [Gonzalo] Higuain and maybe he has a tougher fight there."
