‘Iron Pillar’ Kim Min-jae (27, Naples) is expected to wear a Manchester United uniform.
On the 15th (hereinafter Korean time), ‘Il Martino’, a local media in Naples, Italy, said, “Kim Min-jae has agreed to the transfer to Manchester United, and only the final detailed coordination remains.” reported that
“Napoli are already looking for a new centre-back to replace him.”
As reported, when negotiations on detailed conditions are over and Manchester United officially announces the recruitment, Kim Min-jae will be the second Korean player to wear a Manchester United uniform after Park Ji-sung (42, retired). He will also become the 15th Korean premier of all time. The most recent Korean Premier League player is Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton).
Above all, it will break the record for the highest transfer fee for an Asian player in the EPL previously held by Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), the “Son Sessional”. Son Heung-min incurred £21.5 million (approximately 36 billion won) when he moved his nest from Bayer Leverkusen in Germany to Tottenham in August 2015.

It is truly a ‘sensation’. Kim Min-jae is a first-year player who entered Serie A last summer. He moved his nest from Turkiye Fenerbahce to Naples. However, he showed off his watertight defense from the opening game and quickly adapted to the new league by winning the ‘Serie A Player of the Month’ award in September of last year. Above all else, he was consistently active. He started 33 out of 33 league matches and played a key role in helping Napoli win the title after 33 years, playing 2903 minutes.
Then, the big clubs in Europe put Kim Min-jae as their number one recruit. Man Utd and Tottenham constantly observed Kim Min-jae, and even Man City joined. He kept an eye on Liverpool, Chelsea and even Newcastle. The most active of these was Man Utd. Even though the team is in the acquisition phase, personal negotiations with Kim Min-jae started a few weeks ago due to the quick decision of the head coach and coach Erik Ten Haag. Man Utd tried to steal Kim Min-jae’s heart by promising him a ‘star striker and weekly wage’. In the end, Kim Min-jae opened his heart to Manchester United’s large offer and stepped on the EPL stage of his dreams.
Manchester United strengthened his center back position by recruiting Kim Min-jae. United have Rafael Varane and Lisandro Martinez available for next season, but they have been plagued by frequent injuries. In fact, dissociation-maguire emissions are expected here. It seems that the fact that it is a team that can have enough competitiveness even if Kim Min-jae transfers is an important factor in the transfer.
