Manchester United target Kim Min-jae has ‘said goodbye to his Napoli teammates’ amid reports linking him with a £50million move to Old Trafford this summer.
Erik ten Hag boss Erik ten Hag is keen to improve his squad depth with centre-back a problem area as the club is set to take part in the Champions League next season.
Kim has been linked with a move to Old Trafford having enjoyed a fantastic campaign where he played as a left-sided centre-back as Napoli stormed to the Serie A title.
He was named the Serie A best defender of last season after he missed just four out of a possible 49 games in 2022/23.
The South Korea International moved to Gli Azzurri last summer as a replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly who joined Chelsea.
He is already on the move as reports claim that the Red Devils have already agreed to pay his release clause and have found a villa in Alderley Edge for him.
And it appears the transfer is getting closer to completion with the Daily Mail, via CalcioNapoli24, reporting that the 26-year-old has told his Napoli teammates that he will be leaving Stadio Diego Armando Maradona very soon.
However, as his release clause doesn’t actually become active until July, he and United will have to wait until then before linking up.
