Man Utd’s first summer signing Kim Min-jae confirmed…bids farewell to Napoli colleagues
You’re ready to move on. He said goodbye to his teammates.
On July 7 (KST), Italian media outlet Il Matino reported, “Kim Min-jae has said goodbye to his Napoli teammates ahead of his move to Manchester United. United will pay a buyout clause of 43 million pounds ($69.95 billion) to acquire Kim. He is expected to be United’s first signing of the summer.”
United have been interested in Kim since late last year. In his first season with Napoli, Kim established himself as one of the best defenders in Serie A. He led his team to the league’s fewest conceded goals and won their first title in 33 years.
At the end of the season, he was named “Best Defender” by the league’s governing body. This was a first for an Asian player.
His move to United is being finalized, but he won’t be joining immediately. This is because he has to clear his defense obligations.
Along with Son Heung-min, Kim won gold in men’s soccer at the 2018 Asian Games in Palembang, Jakarta. This means he only needs to undergo four weeks of basic military training to resolve his military issues.메이저놀이터
Kim will enter the training center in June. Only after he has completed his training will he be able to officially join the club.
The Red Devils want to finalize the deal as soon as possible so they can move on to their next signing. Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is the favorite. The Blues have agreed personal terms with Mount, but the issue is the high transfer fee Chelsea are asking for.
Chelsea’s asking price for Mount is £70 million. United are reportedly reluctant to pay Chelsea’s asking price.
