Manchester United are in search of a new center back and reports are linking them with South Korean international, Kim Min-Jae.

According to TMW, Man Utd are ready to strike to sign the defender, who has been in brilliant form for Serie A leaders, Napoli.

As per Corriere dello Sport (news image provided below), the Red Devils have been following the Asian star for some time.

The famous Italian news source have mentioned the Old Trafford club consider exploiting the release clause in Kim’s contract to secure his signing.

CdS claim the exit clause starts from 50 million euros (£45m) and goes up to 80 million euros (£71m) and will only be valid for foreign clubs from 1st to 15th July.

Harry Maguire was a key player for England at the World Cup but the United captain has only warmed the bench for the club under the management of Erik ten Hag.

The Three Lions star has started just three games in the Premier League. Since the return of the competition this month, in the absence of Lisandro Martinez, Erik Ten Hag has used Luke Shaw, a natural left back, in the central defense with Varane.

Earlier today, Shaw started in the 1-0 victory over Wolves and Maguire was only introduced in the final minute. So, it is evident that the 29-year-old needs to leave the Red Devils to play regular first-team football.

Kim Min-Jae has regularly started for Napoli under Luciano Spalletti and was a key member of the South Korean side that reached the Round of 16 in Qatar.

In your view, should Man Utd sign Kim to replace Maguire at Old Trafford?
