DONE DEAL: Report claims extraordinary player will join Man United for over £50m

According to a report from Il Mattino via Sport Witness, which states that the player and the club have reached an agreement and that the club will pay the player’s release clause, Kim Min-jae’s transfer to Manchester United appears to be proceeding after all.

Kim Min-Jae will play for Manchester United, right?

The defender has played in 35 Serie A games for Napoli this season, participating in 35 goals and two assists. He has already had a huge impact on the first team and assisted his side in winning the league despite this being only his first season in Italy.

Kim hasn’t demonstrated that having to adjust to a new culture will deter him. He has consistently been ranked as one of the best players in his position in the Men’s “Top Five” big leagues. His 90.2% passing completion percentage, which puts him in the top ten percentile, and his 4.81 progressive passes per 90, which puts him in the 88th percentile, both demonstrate how adept he is with the ball in his hands. Being able to play in Erik ten Hag’s defense requires the ability to play out from the back, something he excels at.

Then, he might make a good addition to the Man United team, and it appears that a deal to get him to the Premier League is virtually certainly done. According to a rumor from Naples-based publication Il Mattino, through Sport Witness, a transfer is “sure” to occur on July 1 because the Red Devils have agreed to pay his 60 million Euro (or £51 million) release clause. This source indicates that the player has also agreed to personal terms, therefore it seems that the agreement must be finalized when the clause officially begins in July.

They stated in their report that “he will be at Manchester United from July 1st who will pay the 60 million clause.”

Due to the fact that the defender’s current deal expires in 2025 as well, it would be bad for Napoli if he left after just one season. Considering how well regarded he is as well, the Italians won’t be happy to see him leave the team.

Former player Park Ji-Sung, for example, has praised Kim for his Serie A accomplishments and referred to his “extraordinary” talent.

Then Kim appears to be on the verge of joining United, which would unquestionably be a fantastic improvement for their defense.
