Manchester United are serious about signing Kim Min-Jae from Italian champions, Napoli, in the summer window.
Two weeks ago, Il Mattino revealed that the South Korean international has already agreed a deal worth £150,000 a week (9 million euros a season) with the Red Devils.
More recently, yesterday, the Italian media outlet confirmed that Kim will certainly leave the Naples based side after playing his final game of the season on Sunday.
Tomorrow, the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium outfit will collide against Sampdoria in the last game of the Serie A.
Il Mattino claim Man Utd will agree the asking fee, i.e. they will activate the release clause of 60 million euros to sign the player when the international transfer window will open next month.
The above mentioned clause is only valid for the first fifteen days of July and the Old Trafford club are expected to seal the signing during the period.
It is reported that Napoli’s priority for this summer is to purchase a central defender, who will come in to replace Kim Min-Jae at the back.
Later today, Manchester United will face Manchester City in the FA Cup final hoping to win their second trophy of the season and end their rivals’ treble bid.
To challenge the Sky Blues for the Premier League title next season, Ten Hag needs quality reinforcements this summer and Kim would be a top class signing.
