Harry Maguire’s position at Manchester United is in doubt. The road back to the Red Devils first team is now becoming very difficult. The reason is that the performance of Raphael Varane and Lisndro Martinez is very high, and the performance of the 29-year-old player is also less convincing when entering the field.
The British press said that Maguire’s departure from Man Utd in the summer of 2023 could happen. This is good for Maguire and vice versa, for Man Utd itself. The Old Trafford team bought Maguire for £80 million, but his form was not stable.
Not to mention, Eric Bailly or Axel Tuanzebe are also preparing to leave Old Trafford.
Man Utd soon approached Kim recently.
And to prepare for the above departure, Man Utd is ready to recruit Napoli’s Kim Min-Jae. The Red Devils are closely monitoring the performance of the Korean player.
Kim Min-jae joined Napoli from Fenerbahce this summer for £15.5m as a replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly. The 25-year-old midfielder played prominently, continuously entered the typical team and helped Napoli win Serie A. He was called the “Van Dijk” of Asia.
Il Mattino insists Man Utd have agreed on personal terms with Kim. The defender will receive a significant salary increase once he moves to Old Trafford.
Kim’s price point is certainly not cheap. Currently, Napoli set the player’s release clause up to £43.5 million (~ €50 million). However, the Red Devils may have to spend more than 60 million euros for this deal.
Napoli also always know how to pressure players. With Kim Min-jae playing well, Man Utd will have to pay a small amount.
