Kim Min-jae has a buyout clause of 60 million euros that can be triggered between July 1 and 15 to foreign clubs, and it is known that there is no way for Napoli to catch Kim Min-jae if this clause is invoked.
Footmerkato announced that while Eric Tenhach’s Manchester United, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, and Man City are interested in Kim Min-jae, Kim Min-jae is rejecting Napoli’s attempt to remove the buyout clause. A few weeks ago, a meeting was held between Kim Min-jae and Manchester United officials, and it is known that Man U is willing to offer a huge contract for Kim Min-jae. Official figures have not been released, but the media reported the atmosphere, saying, “Man United is ready to offer Kim Min-jae a huge contract with a salary package equivalent to the value of a star striker.” Following Corriere dello Sport, Man Utd is already conducting preliminary negotiations with Kim Min-jae’s aides, and Napoli president Aurelio De Lorenticci also predicted that the existence of this buyout would not prevent Kim Min-jae’s departure.
