‘Korean Monster’ Kim Min-jae (27-Napoli) is on the transfer list of German giants Bayern Munich.

“If Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard leave this summer, the Bavarians are eyeing Kim as a replacement,” the German kicker reported on Friday.

It’s more than just interest. Hernandez and Fabregas, Munich’s back two, have been linked with transfers. The chances of them changing teams are slim. To prepare for their departure, they are watching Kim Min-jae.

“Munich are interested in Kim Min-jae,” according to Bild. Transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano also reported the news. It’s clear that Munich are definitely interested in signing Kim.

If Munich were to make a move, it wouldn’t be hard to come up with the money for a transfer fee. “Kim has a €50 million ($69.2 billion) buyout clause,” Kicker said. If the sale of Hernandez, who has been linked with a move to PSG, goes through, Munich can easily afford this amount.”

According to soccer transfer website Transfermarkt, Hernandez has a market value of €50 million. Considering that the player’s price tag would be higher in the event of an actual transfer, Munich could afford to pay the fee. That is, of course, if Hernandez leaves the club.

It’s clear why Munich are keeping an eye on Kim Min-jae. If Hernandez and Fabregas leave the club, they’ll only have two center backs left, Dayo Upamecano and Matthias Düricht. With Munich competing not only in the league but also in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) and other competitions, a double squad is a must. This is where Kim Min-jae comes in.

According to France’s Foot Mercato, the Bavarians want to guarantee Kim an annual wage of €10 million ($13.8 billion). This shows that they are willing to pay him a decent wage.

Initially, Kim was strongly linked to Manchester United in the English Premier League (EPL). There were many local reports speculating about a move to the Red Devils. There were even speculations about the approximate treatment and the date of the official announcement. A number of teams were in the running for Kim, but it seemed like a move to United was a done deal.

However, a new twist was added to the saga when Munich entered the race for Kim.

The question is whether the game will actually change. Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), who has also been the subject of transfer speculation, recently finalized a deal with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

Lee was heavily linked with a move away from Mallorca this summer, with Atletico Madrid and several other EPL clubs interested. It looked like a move to Atletico was in the offing, but suddenly, talks broke down. Atletico’s lack of investment was to blame.

PSG, who hadn’t been mentioned as a possible destination, emerged as the next team. According to local reports, PSG offered €22 million ($30.4 billion) for Lee. 토토사이트 The club reportedly promised Lee special treatment, including a significantly increased salary and a longer contract. In just a few short days, the tables have turned.

Kim Min-jae also seemed to be close to joining Man United, but Munich’s move could change the game. This is good news for Kim. He was in a position to choose his favorite team based on the offers, treatment, living conditions, and other factors. It was a “happy dilemma” for him.

After returning home from the 2022-23 season, Kim entered Nonsan Training Center on the afternoon of the 15th for basic military training. The transfer is expected to be finalized next month after the three weeks of training.

Kim began his European career with Fenerbahçe (Turkkiye) in 2021 and wore a Napoli jersey within a year. There were some concerns about his quick rise to the big leagues, but Kim dominated the Italian scene with his skills.

Within a year, he became a world-class player. Kim anchored Napoli’s backline with his steady defense and fluid ball distribution, and the team reached the top of the Italian Serie A for the first time in 33 years. Kim was recognized for his performance by becoming the first Asian player to win the Serie A’s best defensive award.

Big clubs are lining up to sign him. In just over a year, Kim is set to take another ‘step up’.
