Where will Kim Min-jae (26, Napoli) end up? Reports of a move to Germany are pouring in, but a move to England hasn’t gone out either. Manchester United are still interested in him. If a new owner is quickly finalized, it could be a ‘last punch’.
Kim broke into Europe’s top flight in the 2022-23 season. After playing in the K League and the Chinese Super League, he made his European debut in a Fenerbahçe shirt, and after just one season, he was approached by Napoli. He took his game to the next level in Italy’s Serie A, the home of defense, and helped Napoli win their first title in 33 years and take a big step forward in the UEFA Champions League 안전놀이터.
Just like at Fenerbahçe, transfer rumors swirled after half a season. As the second half of the season approached, Manchester United were contacted. According to Fabrizio Romano, a European transfer market expert, the Red Devils sent scouts to check on Kim’s performance since October last year.
In Italy, there were many reports that he would leave for Manchester United after saying goodbye to Napoli. There were also stories that he had found a house near Manchester and specific contract terms. The Sun, a British newspaper, even included Kim in their projected lineup for the 2023-24 season.
After returning to Korea after the season, the tide turned. After winning a gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang, Kim had to undergo three weeks of basic military training as part of his military service. While Kim was in the army, Bayern Munich were heavily linked with the player, and the details of the deal began to emerge, much like the Manchester United transfer saga.
Judging by the tone of the media, the Bayern Munich transfer is close, but Manchester United cannot be overlooked. “Manchester United’s new owner is ready to spend a staggering £1 billion ($1.656 billion), according to British media outlets such as the Express. This is the money to complete the scenario planned by Manchester United this summer.”
Manchester United has announced that it will sell the club in the middle of the 2022-23 season. It’s been narrowed down to a two-way race between the United Kingdom and the Qatari capital. British and Qatari media are predicting that Sheikh Jassim will buy Manchester United.
Once the deal is done, he plans to unleash the money. He will give £1 billion to manager Eric ten Hagg and dominate the summer transfer market. “They will be able to sign the players they want, including Victor Osimhen, Adrien Rabiot, Frankie de Jong, Kingsley Coman, Ronald Araujo and Kim Min-Jae,” the Express reported.
Kim Min Jae has risen through the ranks at Napoli, so he has the tactical ability that Mourinho is looking for. If he joins Manchester United, it will be a major investment, backed by Qatari capital. With that capital, he could be the centerpiece of a new era at Manchester United, just as he was at Napoli. 토토사이트추천
