According to The Telegraph, Manchester United can completely lose Kim Min-jae to PSG this summer.
Coach Erik ten Hag wants to stabilize the squad earlier this summer. Therefore, Man Utd seeks to make a quick transfer decision before the end of the season. The defense definitely needs a boost as Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof are said to be leaving Old Trafford.
There, Napoli’s Kim Min-jae is of interest to Man Utd . The Italian press repeatedly revealed that a deal for Min-jae was on the way to being “completed”. Man Utd are ready to sign the Korean defender “immediately” to strengthen the defence.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Man Utd’s pursuit of Kim is real, but the deal is not complete. Kim is valued at 50 million euros by Transfermarkt, but Man Utd can recruit this player for about 60 million pounds.
However, Man Utd suddenly encountered a big obstacle in this deal. Specifically, The Telegraph confirmed that PSG are currently the “leaders” to sign Kim , although no team has made an official offer yet.
PSG sporting director Luis Campos met with representatives of Kim’s side. Kim, if he leaves Napoli, prefers a move to the Premier League. However, with an attractive offer from PSG, Man Utd is completely at risk of missing the number one goal.
However, Napoli also want to keep the player nicknamed “The Beast”. They want to sign a new contract with Kim, which can last until 2027. At that time, Kim’s release clause in the summer of 2023 will no longer be in effect.
