Manchester United have been interested in Kim Min-Jae for some time and the Korean international is once again in the limelight.
Back in December last year, Corriere dello Sport reported that the Red Devils could activate the player’s release clause of £43.7million, valid from 1st to 15th July 2023, to secure his signing.
Now, as per Football Insider, Man Utd are ready to submit a bid to finally sign the central defender in the summer transfer window.
The news source have mentioned that the Old Trafford club are ready to pay £143million to sign Min-Jae and Osimhen from Napoli.
The 26-year-old center back has been brilliant for the Naples-based side, who are currently leading the Serie A and have booked a place in the last eight of the Champions League.
So far, in 25 league starts this term, Kim has helped the Italian team keep 12 clean sheets. Moreover, he has also scored 2 goals.
In the European Cup, he was fantastic in the Round of 16 tie against Europa League winners, Frankfurt. Napoli did not concede a single goal in both the legs.
At Manchester United, skipper, Harry Maguire, and Swedish international, Victor Lindelof, have spent the majority of their time outside the starting XI and the duo could look to leave this summer.
In such a scenario, Ten Hag is right to pursue the signing of a top center back in the form of Kim Min-Jae.
Should Man Utd bid £43.7million in July to hire his services.
