Another day, another report on Kim Min-Jae, who is expected to seal his move to Manchester United next month.
Yesterday, we covered a story via Corriere dello Sport stating that the Red Devils’ deal to sign the South Korean from Napoli is almost certain.
Today Il Mattino reveal the 26-year-old will leave for sure. He will officially become a Man Utd player on July 1 as the Premier League side are set to activate the clause of 60 million euros.
The famous Italian media outlet claim that Kim Min-Jae has agreed a deal with the Old Trafford club that will make him earn £9million per season. i.e. £173,000 a week.
United have also been linked with Victor Osimhen, who recently won the Italian Golden Boot, and Il Mattino claim even he could end up leaving the Naples club this summer.
At the moment, our highest earning central defender is retired French international, Raphael Varane, who takes home around £340,000 a week (The Sun).
On the other hand, skipper, Harry Maguire, who rarely started last season and may end up leaving the club this summer, is earning £190,000 a week.
So, it will be fair to say that United have been able to agree discounted terms with Kim, who was named the Serie A Defender of the Season after winning the Scudetto with Napoli.
