Manchester United moves toward signing Kim Min-Jae
Manchester United is close to signing Kim Min-Jae before the summer transfer window, according to Sport Witness, via several sources. The Red Devils are the current favorites for the 26-year-old center-back after an outstanding season with Napoli.
Erik Ten Hag would expect the management of Manchester United to make decisions about new signings quickly. As opposed to previous seasons, the Dutch manager wants to sign players as soon as possible.
A new center-back is one of many needs Manchester United has for the upcoming window. The importance of the attackers and midfielders continues to outweigh that of the defensive reinforcements. But the club might recognize a significant market opportunity.
They had begun to notice Kim Min-Jae, and for the past few weeks, rumors of a move have been rampant. The player was reportedly eager to join Ten Hag, and the Red Devils were prepared to push for a transfer at the earliest opportunity.
According to reports, Manchester United has also provided the 26-year-old center-back with a sizable package. The ideal scenario would have been for Napoli to keep him and even extend a new contract to him. But the Red Devils’ monetary offer may have outweighed the Serie A champions’ efforts.
A release clause may also be present and remain in effect for two weeks in July, according to credible reports. The 26-year-old Serie A center-back’s buyout option allows top clubs to get a look at him. Despite having a similar interest in the center-back, Liverpool first focused on other targets.
Manchester United might spend money on Kim Min-jae if they can get a few stars to leave the team. Harry Maguire’s time at Old Trafford may be up, despite their desire to offer Victor Lindelof a new contract.
Kim Min-jae would strengthen their defense and give Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez some competition the upcoming campaign. Additionally, a transfer for the 26-year-old center back might permit ten Hag to use Luke Shaw in his preferred left-back position.
