Manchester United (hereinafter referred to as Man United) and Manchester City (hereinafter referred to as Man City) are fighting over Kim Min-jae (27, Naples).
British media ‘Team Talk’, quoting the words of Italian agent Vincenzo Moravito, claimed on the 14th (Korean time), “Man City is ahead of rivals Manchester United in this summer’s race to sign Napoli defender Kim Min-jae.” Moravito said Eric Lamela 스포츠토토
( Sevilla), Olivier Giroud (AC Milan), Arcadius Milik (Juventus), etc.
Kim Min-jae, who wore a Napoli uniform last summer, lifted the Serie A championship trophy in one season after transferring.
He is ‘the core of Napoli’s defense’ He is being evaluated for filling the vacancy of E’Dawn Kalidou Koulibaly (32, Chelsea) well. He is nicknamed ‘iron pillar’. Kim Min-jae temporarily buys out from July 1st to
15th Teams that want Min-jae Kim can negotiate with Min-jae Kim regardless of the intention of the Napoli club. Big clubs can bring Min-jae Kim if they pay 52 million euros (approximately 75.8 billion won), a buyout amount lower than the current value. Napoli want him to stay,
but Kim Min-jae, who wants to play on a bigger stage, is expected to move the upcoming summer stage.Man
City, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Bayern Munich, etc., with Manchester United at the forefront, have a solid financial foundation. However, Kim Min-jae is an invaluable resource for clubs lacking in defensive power, and it is known that Manchester United, who are ‘willing to pay a buyout’, are the most advanced in the race to sign Kim Min-jae.
However, Moravito appeared on Italy’s ‘Kiss Kiss Napoli’ and claimed that Man City was one step ahead in the race to sign Kim Min-jae.
He said, “Fans shouldn’t be angry. It is perfectly normal to talk about the transfer market right now,” he said
. Earlier, Italian media ‘Il Martino’ also said, “Man City pays a variable buyout amount of 50 million to 60 million euros (approximately 72.9 billion to 87.5 billion won) and negotiates over the recruitment of Kim Min-jae. I am ready to step out,” he said.
