Kim Min-jae ‘goes to Manchester United’ this summer, report claims

Kim Min-jae is all set to join Man United, according to one media outlet.

Manchester United are in the market to fill many positions within the squad this summer, with several transfer links already being made.

One man who has been heavily linked with a potential Old Trafford move is Napoli centre-back, Kim Min-jae.

The man from South Korea has had a stunning season, helping his side to their first Serie A title of his lifetime, putting in some colossal defensive performances along the way.

Il Mattino have been the media outlet all over the story since it began. Their latest information offers another vital update on the saga. Thanks to Sport Witness for the translation.


They say that the 26-year-old ‘goes to Manchester United’ this summer, with Napoli already working on finding a replacement. It seems as though they’re looking at bringing Kalidou Koulibaly back to their club, on loan from Chelsea.

Min-jae’s move to Old Trafford is seemingly looking pretty certain, with Il Mattino feeling confident that the South Korean will head to Manchester.

There can be no doubt that this would be a stunning piece of business. Min-jae would immediately compete for starts here in Manchester, presumably rotating in and out of the side, when Licha Martinez and Raphael Varane need a rest. That’s a trio of centre-halves who’d strike fear into any forward in the world, by the way…

If the release clause news is accurate, then United, and any other club in the world, will have the opportunity to meet that clause early in July. However, that clause is only active for a couple of weeks so United will have to act fast.

Do you think a Man United move for Kim Min-jae would make sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
