Germany’s ‘Sky Sports’ reported on the 15th (Korean time), “Munich is looking for a central defender through the transfer market. They inquired about Kim Min-jae from Napoli.”
“The Munich board considers Kim Min-jae to be a very interesting player, and discussions are ongoing internally. If Luca Hernandez leaves, this contract can become more concrete. Benjamin Pavard is also another possible transfer candidate.” he added.
Kim Min-jae left Fenerbahce ahead of the 2022-23 season and moved to Naples, stepping into the European big leagues. And within one season he became the Serie A ‘top defender’. He was not pushed at all in his physical competition, and his defensive abilities, such as tackling and intercepting, were great. In addition, his speed, build-up ability, and progressiveness were called ‘modern center back archetypes’. Thanks to Kim Min-jae, Napoli took the lead from the beginning of the season and succeeded in recapturing the Scudetto after 33 years.
The award proves Kim Min-jae’s performance. During the season, he won the Serie A Secretariat’s Player of the Month award for September and the Italian Football Players Association’s Player of the Month award for October. And at the end of the season, he was named ‘Serie A Team of the Year’ and ‘Serie A Best Defender’. It can be said that he has received almost all the awards he can receive in his first season.
As a result, European mega clubs rushed to recruit Kim Min-jae, and Manchester United was initially influential. Italian revenge media confidently announced that Kim Min-jae would join Manchester United in July. Italy’s Corriele dello Sport said, “As soon as July comes, an official will come out and sign a 4+1 year contract.” He will join Manchester United, which will pay him about 83 billion won, and earn an annual salary of 9 million pounds (about 14.5 billion won).”
However, reports that refute this poured out on the 15th. European transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said, “Man United are still in the race to sign Kim Min-jae, but nothing has been agreed. Despite many reports, nothing has been done. Munich are interested in Kim as one of their new center back options. It’s a specific name.”
Santi Auna of France’s ‘Foot Mercato’ also said, “Kim Min-jae is on the Munich recruitment list. Talks were held last week. The first conversation was very positive, and the first offer was delivered to the agent. Negotiations will continue.” explained.
In addition, Florian Plettenberg of ‘Sky Sports’ said, “Kim Min-jae is a player Munich are clearly watching and it has been confirmed again. He will be a hot transfer target over the next few weeks. Munich are saying that Manchester United are pushing for Kim Min-jae. I know the truth: Eric ten Haag wants him.”
In fact, this is not the first time that the news that Munich is keeping an eye on Kim Min-jae. Last May, Italy’s ‘Arena Napoli’ said, “Munich will consider Kim Min-jae if Pavar leaves. According to our findings, Munich is evaluating the profile of Kim Min-jae, who has performed well in Serie A and the Champions League.” “The prospect of Pavar’s departure after the end of this season led the Munich board to observe Kim Min-jae. Kim Min-jae is recognized for his speed, stamina, aerial combat ability, and clean defense. He has not been shut down by any team so far.” have been notified
As the transfer of Pavar and Lucca became a given, Munich was in a hurry to recruit a center back. Afterwards, while looking for a center back to recruit, Kim Min-jae was dropped. According to ‘Sky Sports’, Napoli even inquired about signing him.
Kim Min-jae’s buyout is known to be at the level of 50 million euros (approximately 69 billion won). Munich can invest in Kim Min-jae’s buyout with the funds generated when Lucca or Pavard transfer.
Kim Min-jae is also a tempting option. Munich is a strong player who has won 11 straight Bundesliga titles by the 2022-23 season. Shines with the most wins in the Bundesliga (32 times), DFB Pokal (20 times), and DFL Super Cup (10 times). In addition, he won the trophy six times in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
