Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is planning several improvements to his team for the 2023/2024 season, with the defense being one area the Dutch tactician aims to strengthen.

The center-back targeted for transfer by MU this summer is Kim Min-jae. The English giants and the player's representatives have already engaged in discussions, and the personal terms have been agreed upon.

Kim Min-jae has a release clause of €60 million, approximately Rp 965 billion, in his contract with Napoli. The clause will be active from July 1 to July 15.

Manchester United plans to trigger the clause as soon as it becomes available to secure the services of the 26-year-old player. Kim is seen as a long-term partner for Lisandro Martinez in the heart of the defense.

Martinez was paired with Raphael Varane throughout the last season. However, the French center-back has been dealing with an injury, which has affected Manchester United's performance.

Furthermore, Harry Maguire's performances have not been up to par, and the English defender is expected to be offloaded this summer.

Kim Min-jae Says Farewell to Napoli Players

Kim Min-jae is getting closer to his move to Manchester United. The South Korean footballer has already started bidding farewell to his teammates at Napoli.

Kim played a crucial role in helping Napoli secure the Serie A title in the 2022/2023 season. Not only that, but he was also named the best defender in Serie A, having missed only four matches.

These impressive achievements have caught the attention of the Red Devils, who are determined not to overlook Kim Min-jae in the summer transfer market. Reports suggest that MU has prepared a lucrative proposal to entice the Napoli star.

Journalist Alfredo Pedulla mentioned that Man Utd is trying to convince Kim with a substantial salary of six million pounds, approximately Rp 110 billion per season. This amount is twice what Kim currently earns at Napoli.
