The transfer of Napoli’s Kim Min-jae to Manchester United is almost certain. According to media reports, it seems that only the signature is left on the contract.
Most recently, an Italian outlet reported, “Manchester United are close to signing Napoli defender Kim Min-jae. The club’s hierarchy and the player’s camp have reached a personal agreement on the transfer,” and “United are now looking for a place for him to live. United are looking for a house in North West Manchester for Kim to live in,” as if the transfer talks were over.
However, Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be desperate to hijack Kim, who is almost certain to join Man United. On the other hand, United is desperately defending Kim Min-jae to avoid losing him.
With PSG joining the hunt for the Napoli star, United are desperate to seal a Kim Min-jae transfer before his release clause kicks in, The Sun reported on Nov. 23.메이저놀이터
Manchester United are working to finalize the signing of Napoli ace Kim Min-jae, according to media reports. However, they have yet to finalize the deal.
The player can only be transferred between July 1 and 15. Therefore, United are trying very hard to convince him to sign in time. Kim will not be in Europe for a month, as he is scheduled to return home for four weeks of military training. He will only be able to put his stamp on the contract once he has completed his military training for alternative military service in South Korea.
United manager, Eric ten Hagh, wants to sign an outstanding striker this summer. At the same time, he wants to strengthen his defense by bringing in Kim Min-Jae. Tottenham”s Harry Kane is a goal-scoring striker and Kim is a defender. Of course, there are alternatives.
United have been working on it since last year, and Kim’s camp wants to play in the English Premier League, especially with a team that qualifies for the Champions League as a prerequisite. Barring a major upset, United will likely finish fourth in the EPL and qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League. Mourinho’s demands have been met.
However, it feels like PSG are making a last-minute spurt to hijack the deal. The media has once again confirmed that Kim is on PSG’s wish list. Recently, Kim’s representatives met with Paris Saint-Germain to talk about the player.
Paris Saint-Germain have already confirmed their place in the Champions League. They are ready to pay the 65 million euros, or about 93 billion won, that United is expected to pay for the player. It could be even less.
They can also afford to reduce Kim’s salary as much as United. United’s current offer for Kim is €9 million, or about $12.9 billion. PSG can afford to pay more if they really want to sign him.
It will be interesting to see if Kim follows his dream and heads to the EPL or Man United, or if he follows the money to PSG.
