Wolverhampton’s Raul Jimenez is being discussed as a candidate for Boot Verhost’s departure.
Reporter Fabricio Romano, who is well-versed in the European transfer market, posted a message on his SNS on the 12th (hereinafter Korean time), announcing the confirmation of the transfer, saying, “Verhost is going to Manchester United.”
Romano continued, “All conditions disclosed on Tuesday have been confirmed. Man United pays Besiktas £3m (approximately 4.5 billion won) for rent. This is the amount that Verhost, who left on loan to Besiktas from Burnley, was terminated. Verhost will fly to Manchester today to undergo a medical and sign a contract.”
Verhost was originally active at Burnley, but tasted failure as the team was relegated and was loaned to Besiktas this season. And while he was on loan, he scored 9 goals in 18 matches and improved his goal sense, and also showed his presence by scoring multiple goals in the quarterfinals against Argentina in the last World Cup in Qatar.
As a result, he was caught on Manchester United’s radar net. Manchester United were looking for a new front-line striker after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. Marcus Rashford is showing a rising firepower, but manager Eric ten Haag needed a target man who could compete and hold on in the penalty box. In the end, Berhost’s rental transfer is imminent.
Besiktas, who originally brought Berhost on loan, must find a replacement for him. According to the British media ‘Metro’, the main character who has emerged as a replacement for Verhost is Raul Jimenez, a striker of Wolverhampton and a colleague of Hwang Hee-chan.
Himenez has been a striker like the symbol of Wolverhampton for a long time. Jimenez is currently one of Wolverhampton’s top players and has a contract until the summer of 2024. Jimenez has established himself as the core and ace of the team, scoring 27 goals throughout the league and cup competitions in the 2019-20 season. However, he suffered a period of stagnation due to a fatal injury. He suffered a skull fracture in the 2020-21 season and returned from injury in the 2021-22 season and scored 6 goals, but in the 2022-23 season he was injured in the preseason and was unable to show proper performance, and only scored 1 league goal. 온라인바카라
Also, the attackers are currently saturated, so they are slightly behind in the competition. Diego Costa was recruited in the transfer market last summer, and attackers such as Daniel Podens, Hwang Hee-chan, and Gonzalo Gueds are pouring in, but Jimenez has not been able to play as a starter this season. Recently, Matheus Cunya was also recruited and virtually lost his place.
After all, the possibility of transfer is increasing. According to the British media ‘Daily Mail’, even Jimenez, who was the team’s key striker, is emerging as a candidate for sale.
The fact that he was pushed from the main match and the Wolverhampton attack reorganization policy are intertwined, and Jimenez is likely to leave the team. And since Berhost, who has a similar style, left, Besiktas’ striker position is vacant, so he is emerging as a strong candidate.
