Napoli’s sporting director has confirmed two aspects in the contract of a Man Utd target that gives Erik ten Hag a perilously short window to complete a deal.
Arguably the greatest success story among many in Man Utd’s summer window is Lisandro Martinez. Concerns were raised about the Argentine’s ability to handle Premier League attacks given his relatively short stature for a centre-half.
However, despite standing at 5ft 9in, Martinez has not only been United’s best centre-back this season, but one of the finest in the entire league
The South Korea international was previously a target for Tottenham, though it was Napoli who swooped to the tune of £15.6m last summer.
Kim has been a revelation since arriving from Fenerbahce and has been a mainstay in a side that remarkably hold an eight-point advantage over second-placed AC Milan in Serie A going into the World Cup.
Man Utd target holds tempting release clause
Napoli are believed to have inserted a release clause in Kim’s contract worth either €50m or €45m – the figure has been disputed.
The reliable Gianluca Di Marzio previously reported the clause can only be triggered after Kim has completed one full year at Napoli, meaning he can be signed starting from next summer
