Those efforts have attracted admiring glances from afar, with Jimenez embracing the speculation he has been generating.
He considers the links to United and Juve, along with Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, to be “cool” and has been doing little to douse the transfer flames.
The Wolves icon told the Express and Star: “The Mexican striker continues to be the subject of lots of speculation, linking him with sides such as Manchester United and Juventus.
“It would take something special for him to leave, but why go when Jimenez has everything at Molineux?
“This is a great set-up, a great club, a great manager, and he does not need to go.
“Of course, he wants to win medals, but he can do that at Wolves. Sooner rather than later, too.
“At his age, you could look at it as a chance to earn a big move on big money, but I think we can match his ambitions, and finances are not a problem either.
“Having been involved with Wolves for 34 years, I can safely say the ambition of the club is huge. And it is not just Premier League football. It is Europe as well.
“We have not been in this situation for a long time, and Jimenez has started something, so why not finish it here?
“I think Wolves have the fire-power to keep players like that now. They can pull the stops out to keep him.”
