It is news that Man City, not Man Utd, are leading the race for Kim Min-jae (Napoli).
Kim Min-jae has been reborn as a key player in the team in the first season after moving to Naples. Thanks to Kim Min-jae’s performance, Napoli completed the best season by lifting the Scudetto (Serie A championship) for the first time in 33 years. Kim Min-jae wrote history as the first Korean player to win the Italian league.
After winning the championship, the interest of the big clubs towards Kim Min-jae became even hotter. In particular, Manchester United, who has been linked with Kim Min-jae since last September, strongly wants Kim Min-jae. With reports that he had already negotiated with Min-jae Kim, a transfer to Manchester United became more likely.
But there are variables. On the 14th (Korean time), Britain’s ‘Team Talk’ said, “Man Utd’s rival, Manchester City, is showing the upper hand in the match for Kim Min-jae. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola wants to strengthen the defense and has made Kim Min-jae a top priority.”
Also, according to the media, agent Vincenzo Moravito said, “Fans should not be angry. It is very normal for transfer talks to come out now. There is a higher possibility of signing Kim Min-jae from Man City than Manchester United,” he said, 먹튀검증 revealing that there is a recruitment movement.
Manchester City, who are likely to win the league title this season, are planning to clean up their defense in the coming summer. With Hubin Dias and John Stones taking the starting lineup, Emeric Laporte is likely to move next season. There are Nathan Ake and Manuel Akanji, but they need a solid central defender who can play multiple positions between starting and replacing.
As the ‘Manchester Derby’ unfolds in the match for Kim Min-jae, Napoli’s concerns are growing. If Kim Min-jae’s transfer to Man City is made, a picture of running with monster striker Elling Holland becomes possible.
