On the 9th (Korean time), the most surprising thing about the report on the transfer of Kim Min-jae (Napoli) to Manchester United in the British daily The Sun is the transfer fee.
‘The Sun’ reported that Manchester United plans to sign Kim Min-jae for a transfer fee of 53 million pounds (about 88 billion won), which exceeds the buyout clause this summer. As is widely known, there is a £40 million buyout clause in Kim Min-jae’s contract with Napoli, which is only active from July 1 to 15. If you pay the buyout amount, you do not have to negotiate a 메이저놀이터transfer fee separately. But if the reports are true, United are willing to spend an extra £13m to win Napoli’s heart. That’s how much I want to recruit Kim Min-jae.
Kim Min-jae joined Fenerbahce two years ago in 2021 for just 3 million euros (current exchange rate of about 4.3 billion won). He wore a Napoli uniform for 18 million euros (approximately 26.2 billion won), a six-fold increase last summer. If Kim Min-jae heads to Manchester United for 53 million pounds as reported by ‘The Sun’, the transfer fee has increased by about 20 times in two years. Of course, he also sets a new record for the highest transfer fee in Korea.
‘Sky Sports’ cited a report from ‘The Sun’ and explained why Manchester United is interested in signing Kim Min-jae with statistics. According to ‘Sky Sports’, Kim Min-jae ranked 1st in pass success (2411) in Italian Serie A in the 2022-2023 season, 2nd in aerial competition (92), 11th in interception (40), and 6 possessions in the defensive third area. Ranked at the top in various stats, including 108th place and 9th place in header scoring (2).
‘Sky Sports’ introduced the current situation of Manchester United’s defense, saying, “Man Utd center backs Rafael Varane and Lisandro Martinez are suffering from long-term injuries, and Harry Maguire is having difficulty playing in the Eric Tenhach system.” He joined Napoli as a replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly, who left for , and performed impressively in Serie A.” Kim Min-jae was called ‘Napoli’s Serie A hero’ in that he was the main character who led Naples’ first scudetto in 33 years.
