Man United News :-
Manchester United is preparing to make an offer for Kim Min-jae, the Napoli defender who had a remarkable first season in Serie A.
After winning the Scudetto in his debut season in Italy, the 26-year-old Kim Min-jae, who joined Napoli from Fenerbahce last summer, could be on the move again.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Manchester United is reportedly preparing to make an offer for the defender.
Kim has a £40 million clause in his contract with Napoli that can be triggered by foreign teams this summer.
However, the Red Devils aim to outbid any other potential buyers by offering £53 million, which exceeds Kim’s release terms as per the report.
Manchester United believes that offering a high bid for Kim Min-jae could persuade Napoli to sell their prized defender to Erik ten Hag’s team this summer.
Due to long-term injuries to Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez, United has been deploying Luke Shaw in the center-back position in recent games.
Additionally, Harry Maguire has lost his place in the team, and the club is looking to strengthen their defense in the upcoming transfer window.
It is uncertain whether Manchester United will pursue Kim Min-jae as an addition to their defensive lineup for the next season, given that the Korean is expected to demand a starting position.
Many European teams will likely be pursuing the 26-year-old defender after his impressive season in Italy.
Napoli is known for being a tough negotiator and may attempt to keep their center-back, convincing him to stay in Naples despite the release clause.
