“There is no specific contact. There is no reason to move quickly.”
This was the explanation of the ‘Monster’ Kim Min-jae (Naples) for the pouring man fashion reports. Recently, Kim Min-jae’s destination was decided by Manchester United. Reports continued that ‘Man Utd is promoting the recruitment of Kim Min-jae’, and on the 16th (Korean time), Italy’s Ilmatino said that ‘only detailed coordination is left’. Ilmartino said, ‘Man Utd is in front of the recruitment of Kim Min-jae’ and ‘the club’s leadership and agent also persuaded Min-jae Kim to accept Man Utd’. Multiple British media even reported that ‘Kim Min-jae’s annual salary will be around 8 million euros’.
Kim Min-jae’s future was a hot issue.토스카지노 Napoli won the thrilling league championship trophy in 33 years. It is the third time Napoli has won the championship since the 1986-1987 season and the 1989-1990 season when the ‘legend’ Diego Maradona was active. At the center was Kim Min-jae. Kim Min-jae played a big role as the core of the team throughout the season. When ‘Legend’ Koulibaly left for Chelsea, Napoli recruited Kim Min-jae from Turkiye Fenerbahce to fill the void left by him. Napoli, convinced of Kim Min-jae’s success through scouting for a long time, paid a buyout of 20 million euros. There was no adaptation period for the monster who entered the big league for the first time. He was very active from the beginning of the season and quickly became the center of the team. In September of last year, Kim Min-jae was selected as the Serie A Player of the Month. Kim Min-jae was the first Asian national player to be selected as the Serie A Player of the Month, which was awarded from the 2019-2020 season.
With Kim Min-jae taking the center stage, Napoli recorded the fewest goals in the league this season. In particular, in the aggressive Luciano Spalletti style, Kim Min-jae achieved amazing results with aggressive defense. A relay of praise from legends such as Fabio Cannavaro and Alexandro Costacurta followed. He performed fantastically, to the point of being debated as the best centre-back in the world beyond Italy. It is even mentioned in the best 11 of all time in Naples. Kim Min-jae is regarded as the best center back in the world this season along with Ronald Arnaho (Barcelona), Eder Militao (Real Madrid), Ruben Dias, and John Stones (Man City).
Kim Min-jae was also nominated for the Serie A Team of the Year announced on the 16th, ‘of course’. A total of 45 players were selected, and Kim Min-jae was proudly included among the 13 defenders. Locally, it is seen as a leading winner.
Kim Min-jae, who has received attention from big clubs throughout the season with his amazing performance, seems to increase his value even more as he raises Napoli to the top. Kim Min-jae’s market value is already 50 million euros (based on the Transfermarkt), which is second only to ‘Asia No. 1’ Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who boasts 60 million euros. Big clubs such as Man City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Tottenham are keeping an eye on Kim Min-jae. Recently, it was an atmosphere that was organized towards Man United. Centered on the Italian and British media, ‘Man Utd is trying to ruin the festival in Naples. Manchester United is stepping up efforts to sign Kim Min-jae. They rushed to publish reports stating that they could pay the buyout.
French Foot Mercato said, “Man Utd tried to talk with Kim Min-jae,” and “Man Utd will offer Kim Min-jae a much higher salary than the star striker’s salary received in Naples.” Italy’s Tuto Mercato said, “Man United has been in contact with Kim Min-jae since the World Cup,” and “will try to sign him at an amount higher than the buyout around June, before the buyout is activated in July.” Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano recently appeared on a YouTube channel specializing in Manchester United news and said, “Kim Min-jae is definitely a player Manchester United is watching. He has already dispatched scouts several times.”
First of all, Kim Min-jae’s side drew a line against the continued rumors. A key official from Kim Min-jae’s side said, “There was no specific contact” with Sports Chosun. “The season is not over yet. The player focused only on winning the league this season. He was not shaken by the rumors that had continued in the past, and we also decided that we would not move until the end of the season. We plan to monitor the situation.” In fact, British Talk Sports also said, ‘Man United wants Kim Min-jae, but they have not yet agreed to a contract’. Kim Min-jae’s side said, “We know that Man Utd is interested,” and “Man Utd is currently in a complicated situation with the acquisition of the club, so it will be difficult to move quickly. Above all, participation in the European Champions League has not yet been confirmed.”
Kim Min-jae’s side has no intention of moving quickly. All circumstances favor Kim Min-jae. Above all, Kim Min-jae has a buyout clause. Kim Min-jae inserted a buyout when he joined Napoli last summer. Arenanapoli said, ‘Kim Min-jae’s contract has a buyout clause that allows him to leave Napoli this summer. ‘A very real risk to President Aurelio De Laurentiis,’ he said. “Kim Min-jae can freely leave the club by exercising his option for two weeks from July 1st to 15th (only overseas). Kim Min-jae has a contract until 2025,” and said, “The buyout amount varies from 45 million euros (about 65 billion won) to 60 million euros (about 87 billion won).”
Given Kim Min-jae’s performance this season, the buyout is a relatively cheap price. Wallcle centerbacks are becoming more and more rare. Kim Min-jae has already been verified in the European Champions League. In the European Champions League, the war of stars, no striker has surpassed Kim Min-jae. Napoli also strongly wants to stay, and other clubs can actively change depending on the situation. Kim Min-jae’s side said, “European Champions League qualification has not been decided, and the European Champions League schedule has not been finalized this season. It is said that the situation can change rapidly.” I don’t like to move quickly,” he said. In addition to the actual Manchester United, reports of Chelsea and Man City continue to come out.
Eventually, the outline is expected to be revealed only after June. Kim Min-jae plans to do military training in June. It is expected that the full-fledged activities will begin after the military training is over. Kim Min-jae’s side also sees this as a point. The atmosphere is already hot. It was the same last summer, but this time it’s bigger. Kim Min-jae’s saga ‘Season 2’ is about to start in earnest.
