Of the two Manchester clubs, United wants Kim Min-jae more.
Napoli are on the verge of a Scudetto. In the most recent game, he won and crossed the 9th division ridge. Napoli recorded a 1-0 victory over Juventus in the 31st round of Italian Serie A in the 2022-23 season held at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy on the 24th at 3:45 am (Korean time). With this, Napoli won after 4 official matches and the gap with ‘2nd place’ Lazio widened to 17 points.
Napoli’s first championship in 33 years is getting closer. In Naples’ high-flying march, Kim Min-jae’s performance stands out. Kim Min-jae, who has played in 30 league games so far, has become the number one contributor to Napoli’s high-altitude march, showing stable defense, bold cutting ability, and wide range of defense in every game.
Naturally, leading clubs ㅋㅋㅋ벳are interested in him. Fabricio Romano, an expert on the European football transfer market working for the British media ‘Guardian’, said on his YouTube channel in March that “Man United scouts came to watch Napoli and Lazio matches to observe Kim Min-jae.” He is one of the players I look forward to the most.”
Here is the news that Manchester City has recently joined the scout competition. British media ‘The Sun’ said, “Kim Min-jae is attracting interest from Manchester United and Manchester City. Napoli want to keep him, but his buyout is on the fairly low side.”
Reporter Daniele Longo of the Italian media ‘Calcio Mercato’ then said, “Kim Min-jae has a buyout clause that is valid only for clubs outside Italy for two weeks in July. In England, we are confident that Man City is evaluating Kim Min-jae specifically.” . Currently, Kim Min-jae’s buyout amount is known to be between 45 million euros (about 66.6 billion won) and 50 million euros (about 74 billion won) depending on the club.
Currently, both Man Utd and Man City are aiming for Kim Min-jae, but it is said that Man Utd is more interested. ‘Calcio Mercato’ said, “Man United have been competing with Man City for Kim Min-jae recently. However, Man United has a much better advantage and is more interested. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, who are currently Manchester United’s centre-back backup resources. is not getting the trust from manager Eric ten Haag.”
However, Man City is also in need of authentic center back resources, recently using John Stones as a defensive midfielder under the tactics of manager Pep Guardiola. As a result, the ‘off-the-field Manchester derby’ with Kim Min-jae is expected to continue.
