Man Utd make decision on £38m Harry Maguire replacement after ‘disturbing’ rumours

Manchester United have reportedly pencilled in a summer swoop for Napoli star Kim Min-Jae as Erik ten Hag attempts to bolster his defence at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have been linked with the centre-back for some time with the South Korean’s performances for the Italian giants since his arrival from Fenerbahce not going unnoticed. He has only been at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona since July but has stepped into the spot left by Kalidou Koulibaly admirably – the Senegalese leaving for Chelsea.

As per TuttoMercatoWeb, a move in the summer of 2023 has already been pencilled in with Ten Hag prioritising a move for a striker in January amid Cristiano Ronaldo’s explosive exit from Old Trafford ahead of the transfer window opening.

It is suggested that the Red Devils – and any interested party for that matter – would have to pay the €44m (£38m) release clause currently written into the defender’s contract to stand any chance of a deal. Intriguingly, Kim has already weighed in on his future with rumours beginning to circulate during the World Cup and was keen to shut down any speculation.

Quoted by You Quiz on the Block, Kim said: “There are a lot of transfer stories around me, but I’ve only been at Napoli for six months. I’ve avoided interviews, and one of the reasons is that the rumours about me disturb me.”
