New information indicates that Kim Min-jae of Napoli is more likely to be acquired by Manchester United during the summer transfer window.

Kim Min-jae and United reportedly have a relationship.
This season has witnessed a significant increase in the South Korean’s popularity as a result of a standout performance that may have elevated him to legendary status in Naples.

Kim is now likely considered as one of Europe’s top center-backs after being one of Napoli’s star performances as they won their first Serie A title since all the way back in 1990. Averaging 3.5 clearances per game in the division and 3.6 in the Champions League, according to WhoScored, the 26-year-old started 35 of his team’s 38 league games.

The Napoli hero has emerged as a top target for United, who are searching for a new central defence before the start of the upcoming season. Several rumours have linked him to an Old Trafford move this summer. His potential arrival in the Premier League is now further supported by a fresh allegation that has surfaced.

How is Kim Min-jae’s future progressing currently?
According to Gazzetta dello Sport [via Sport Witness], “insiders” at Napoli “take it for granted” that Kim will play for United this summer and believe a trade is almost complete. They are prepared to exercise his release clause, which requires a minimum payment of €50m (£43m), completing the transfer.

It is rumoured that the final signing cost will depend on the Red Devils’ financial performance in 2022, but it does appear that the defender may be moving to England.

This summer’s acquisition of Kim, who would greatly expand United’s options and raise their game, might very well be the ideal center-back move for the team. While Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, and Lisandro Martinez have all had their moments, Raphael Varane, who is 30 years old and prone to injury, may also be ready to move on. Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez have also had their moments as a team.

Because of this, Kim—alongside Martinez—may be considered the United backline of the future. He combines defensive know-how with ball-playing prowess, two qualities that might turn Erik ten Hag’s team into a formidable opponent. In Serie A in 2022–2023, Kim had a pass completion percentage of 91%.

Park Ji-sung, a former Reds star, called his fellow countryman, who earns £33,000 per week, “extraordinary,” which is high praise from someone who is accustomed to succeeding at Old Trafford. The club must make every effort to secure his signing in the upcoming weeks.
