Italian transfer market expert Alfredo Fedula said on social media on the 4th (Korean time), “Manchester United has negotiated with Kim Min-jae twice.” 10,000 euros plus additional provisions.”

According to Italian media, Kim Min-jae receives an annual salary of 2.5 million euros in Naples. It has revealed its willingness to recruit under conditions that are difficult to refuse, such as up to three times the annual salary alone.

Manchester United are a team that is strongly seeking Kim Min-jae in the transfer window this summer. Reporter Fabrizio Romano, a transfer market expert with great public confidence, announced early last month that “Manchester United wants to sign Kim Min-jae.”

The reason Kim Min-jae came to the transfer market after one year of transfer despite being a key player in Naples is because of the buyout clause. Napoli included a buyout clause in the contract with Kim Min-jae ahead of this season. The buyout amount is known to be between 50 million and 60 million euros. This condition is active for just 15 days in the transfer window this summer for foreign clubs outside of Italy. If you meet the buyout clause, you can immediately set up a negotiating table with the player regardless of the club’s answer. When clubs such as Manchester United appeared that wanted to recruit Kim Min-jae, Napoli pushed for a renewal of the contract to remove the buyout clause or increase the amount, but it is known that it was virtually abandoned due to the club’s annual salary cap policy.

Manchester United, who secured the right to participate in the UEFA Champions League next season, is aiming to win the Premier League next season as well as European competitions and cup competitions. As a result, they are aiming for a massive reinforcement of their power, and their top priority is the forward striker and defender. Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez are the main defenders, but injuries are frequent, and backup defenders Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelhoff do not provide a sense of stability compared to Baran and Martinez. Maguire and Lindelhoff are likely to leave the team. Paul Park, who played for Manchester United’s defender as a player, said, “Baran is at risk of injury, so it’s good to have a new player who can compete with him.” It would be amazing if they were willing to come and fight for a spot that wasn’t guaranteed.”

Reporter Fedula reaffirmed, “Manchester United and Kim Min-jae are scheduled for new negotiations,” and “the buyout amount is 60 million euros, and it will be active from July 1 to 15.”
