Manchester United is reportedly prepared to secure the signing of Kim Min-jae once negotiations with Napoli are finalized, as indicated by Italian publication Corriere dello Sport. The future of the South Korean defender has been outlined in the report.
Kim Min-jae, aged 26, stands tall and is a very good center back. Notably, his contract includes a release clause of €50 million.
Representing South Korea, Min-jae has accumulated an impressive record of 47 appearances, with 3 goals to his name.
Recognized for his physical prowess, particularly in his strength, speed, and flexibility, Kim excels in his role as a central defender. He displays exceptional defensive anticipation and is often involved in initiating and concluding plays when his team is on the offensive. His precision in long passes enables him to swiftly launch counterattacks after stealing the ball, and his remarkable aerial ability and positional awareness allow him to disrupt opponent attacks and initiate offensive maneuvers through well-executed headers.

It is speculated that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag may consider selling Harry Maguire, while Victor Lindelof’s departure is also a possibility. With Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez currently injured but expected to remain with the team beyond the summer, the need for additional center-backs at United is evident.
Considering the limited two-week window in July during which Min-jae’s contract clause is active, Manchester United must act swiftly to secure his services.
