MU’s acquisition of Kim Min Jae suddenly encountered obstacles when Bayern Munich joined the race for the signature of this defender.
Kim Min Jae spent a very successful first season with Napoli. The Korean defender made a big contribution to helping the Serie A champion team. It was that impressive performance that helped Kim Min Jae catch the sights of big teams.
MU is among the teams that want to recruit the Korean defender. However, MU has not yet reached any official offer. Immediately, the Bayern Munich side appeared and embarked on the Kim Min Jae deal.
Accordingly, Bayern has launched a campaign to recruit Kim. The two sides quickly exchanged and agreed on personal terms. The negotiation process between Bayern and Kim took place smoothly and quickly.
It is possible that Bayern will “rob” Kim Min Jae right in front of MU. The German team is always very active in the market and often achieves a high success rate in deals. Therefore, Kim Min Jae can choose Bayern instead of Man Utd.
Kim Min Jae has two years left on his contract with Napoli and the price offered is around £50 million. According to Fabrizio Romano, both MU and Bayern are willing to pay the above price, but the Bayern side is said to work more quickly and decisively.
Both MU and Bayern are looking forward to adding a defender to the squad next season. For Man Utd, Kim Min Jae will be the ideal solution for Maguire – who is expected to leave MU this summer. At Bayern, Kim will replace Lucas Hernandez if the French defender moves to PSG.
