The media has revealed the roadmap for Kim Min-jae (SSC Napoli) to join Manchester United, a prestigious Premier League club.
The British media ‘Tribal Football’ reported on the 27th (Korean time), “Kim Min-jae will fly to England after the season is over.”먹튀검증
The media, citing the Italian media ‘Corriele dello Sport’, said, “Man United hopes to sign a contract with Napoli defender Kim Min-jae early.”
He added, “Right after the season ends, Kim will fly to England to undergo a medical test and tour Manchester United’s facilities.”
“Paying the Kim Min-jae buyout of 60 million euros (about 85.2 billion won) is the most likely option for Manchester United, but Manchester United hopes to reach an agreement at 50 million euros (about 71 billion won) if possible.”
Kim Min-jae became one of the best defenders in Europe while playing a key role in the victory of Napoli, which became the Serie A champion this season.
Kim Min-jae’s performance naturally caught the attention of Manchester United, who wanted to strengthen their defense. Just in time, Manchester United secured at least 4th place in the league and confirmed their advance to the UEFA (European Football Confederation) Champions League, allowing them to speed up the recruitment of Kim Min-jae.
United want to complete personal negotiations and medical tests as soon as possible before the transfer window opens.
Originally, the transfer market in the summer of 2023 will start on June 14, but since Kim Min-jae will have to undergo basic military training in Korea for three weeks before and after this day, there is a need to finalize the negotiations in advance.
Therefore, Manchester United planned to negotiate a transfer fee with Napoli after Kim Min-jae completed all personal negotiations and medical tests before returning to Korea to receive military training.
After joining Manchester United, he is expected to join Manchester United’s pre-season US tour after military training.
On the other hand, while Kim Min-jae is also positive about Manchester United, it is expected that there will be no major problems in individual negotiations, but another obstacle remains for Man United, which is negotiations with Naples.
It is known that the 60 million euros (approximately 85.2 billion won) of Kim Min-jae buyout is only valid for overseas clubs from July 1 to 15.
Man Utd can use this clause to bring Europe’s top defender Kim Min-jae at an amount lower than the ransom by actually reducing the transfer fee.
However, a question mark is attached to whether Napoli will accept the lowest possible transfer fee through negotiations.
