Recently, when Kim Min-jae (SSC Napoli) was connected to Manchester United, a question mark was raised in Italy.
On the 11th (Korean time), reporter Francesco Lepice of the Italian media ‘Rye Sports’ expressed his thoughts, saying, “I don’t know why Kim Min-jae wants to go to Manchester United.”
Napoli became Serie A champions for the 2022/23 season. In the third championship in 33 years, South Korean defender Kim Min-jae played an active role as one of the leading players.
Kim Min-jae, who became the best defender in Serie A this season, led the championship race while taking charge of the defense of Napoli.
Kim Min-jae’s performance, which contributed to Napoli’s victory, was enough to draw attention from big European clubs. Currently, the club that is showing the most interest in Kim Min-jae is Premier League prestigious Manchester United.
British media ‘Sky Sports’ said on the 10th, “Man United is willing to pay 53 million pounds (about 88.7 billion won) in addition to the buyout of 40 million pounds (about 67 billion won) to bring Kim Min-jae.” there is.토토사이트
When Kim Min-jae was closely connected with Manchester United, locals in Italy responded that it was difficult to understand why he was trying to leave Napoli, the Serie A champion.
Reporter Lepiche said, “There was talk about how long Napoli could withstand offers from big clubs, but I’m not sure why, for example, Kim Min-jae wants to go to Manchester United.”
He added: “Napoli are worth more than Manchester United now. They are giving more guarantees now.”
He also said, “Kim Min-jae may think about the environment or prospects rather than his wallet, but Naples doesn’t need money, so if it were me, I would wait.”
Napoli wants to end the transfer rumors by signing a new contract with Kim Min-jae as soon as possible. However, it is expected that Kim Min-jae will have to present significantly higher contract conditions as he is currently receiving love calls from many clubs, including Man United.
Italian media ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ revealed on the 9th that Min-jae Kim’s annual salary was 2 million euros (about 2.9 billion won), and 6 million euros (about 8.7 billion won), three times the annual salary that Premier League clubs are currently receiving from Min-jae Kim. It has been reported that he has offered more than a salary.
