Manchester United have made Napoli defender Kim Min-Jae a transfer target for this summer, various reports claim.
- Man United interested in signing a new defender
- Min-Jae has a reported buy-out clause of 40 million euros
- Napoli keen on offering defender new contract
What is the news?
According to the Daily Mail, Man United have been made aware that Min-Jae has a release clause in his contract at Napoli. The South Korean defender joined the Serie A champions last summer and has emerged as one of the strongest defenders in Europe, which has led to interest from Europe’s elite. Min-Jae reportedly has a buy clause worth 40 million and United are prepared to activate that clause.
Man United are looking to invest in their defense this summer. Head coach Erik ten Hag has seen enough of both Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire and the Dutchman has instructed his club he wants to sell both defenders. It is expected that United will be investing in a new defender this summer and with a low release clause, Min-Jae could be one of the most interesting players on the summer market to look at.
After a steller first season at Napoli, the current Italian champions are keen on rewarding Min-Jae for his performances with a new and improved contract. The club wants to take the opportunity to immediately remove the buyout clause from the new contract. If Min-Jae does sign a new contract it would mean that Napoli is able to ask for a hefty transfer fee for the Korean defender.
