Man Utd warned World Cup star Kim Min-jae could cost Erik ten Hag £100m in January

Manchester United have been warned that January transfer target Kim Min-jae would cost the Red Devils up to £100million, should Erik ten Hag wish to strengthen their defence with the South Korean star. The Napoli defender kept a clean sheet as his country drew 0-0 with Uruguay in their opening game of the World Cup on Thursday.

The centre-back has impressed since moving to Serie A from Fenerbache in the summer, and has been a rock in the back as Luciano Spalletti’s side sit top of the table in Italy and have qualified for the knock-out stages of the Champions League.

Former Liverpool and England midfielder Danny Murphy was on punditry duties for the BBC and claimed that United are interested in signing Min-jae, but have been told his price tag is eye-watering.

“I think his performances recently have been so good,” Murphy said. “The clubs interested now. I was talking to someone this morning who was saying Manchester United are interested and they are talking £100m. That’s how quickly you can grow in this game, because they have been absolutely sensational Napoli to start to the season, him included.”
