Manchester United are consistently linked with Kim Min-Jae and we have another update coming from Italy.
According to a report covered by Corriere dello Sport today (press image provided below), Man United are “ready” to sign Min-Jae in the summer transfer window.
The Rome based news source have mentioned that Napoli are already looking at options to replace the South Korean international at the club.
CdS claim the newly crowned Serie A champions are targeting the signing of Atalanta’s 19-year-old, Giorgio Scalvini, to replace Min-Jae.
The 26-year-old Asian star has consistently put in solid defensive performances under Luciano Spalletti, who thinks that the defender is an “incredible” player.
He has helped Napoli keep no fewer than 20 clean sheets so far in the current campaign and deserves a massive pay rise.
At the moment, the former Beijing Guoan center back takes home around 2 million euros net per season and his contract with the Naples based side has a release clause ranging from £43m-£60m (CN24).
As compared to last season, Man United’s defense has largely improved but they need further reinforcements in the summer, especially to replace Maguire.
The 20-time English champions have so far let in 41 goals in 34 Premier League fixtures and have suffered defeat in the last two games.
Have your say – Should Ten Hag spend around £43m-£60m to sign Kim Min-Jae?
