Kim Min Jae has been an outstanding revelation for Napoli this season. His performances for the Azzurri have won him the Serie A player of the season award for September. And this has resulted in a lot of foreign clubs being interested in signing him including Manchester United.
Following Raphael Varane’s injury and Harry Maguire’s extremely poor form, Erik Ten Hag’s side is looking for a new centre-back. And the low release clause of the Napoli man has resulted in a very keen interest.
Here’s why Manchester United want Kim Min Jae
The South Korean’s lawyer, Mattia Grassani, has revealed the details surrounding his client’s contract. Here is what he told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli:
“In the summer, the Kim Min Jae clause will be valid for 15 days. The will of the club where there are clauses is to limit the validity of the clause for a very short time. For the simple reason that, in this way, any departures and replacements can be evaluated in time.”
Kim Min Jae has a release clause worth €50 million, which will be valid in 2023 for a period of 15 days. But since Napoli are so difficult to negotiate with, it is very unlikely that the defender will be allowed to leave only a year after joining the team.
