Man Utd ‘have convinced Kim Min-jae to sign’ as transfer nears completion
Ten Hag gives Man Utd team news update ahead of facing Wolves
Manchester United have convinced Kim Min-jae to sign this summer, according to reports in Italy. The Napoli defender’s switch is merely a matter of details, while his team-mate Victor Osimhen is also in the spotlight as Premier League heavyweights circle.
United boss Erik ten Hag has been given an uncomfortable reminder in recent weeks that he needs greater depth at centre-back. Luke Shaw has acquitted himself well when shifting over from the left, but if the Red Devils are to challenge for top domestic and European prizes, new bodies will be required.
With Phil Jones and Axed Tuanzebe set to be released this summer, not to mention Harry Maguire’s uncertain future, Ten Hag effectively has a green light to sign a new centre-back. Napoli ace Kim has long been linked to Old Trafford, and recent reports indicate that the deal is creeping closer.
According to Il Mattino, those involved in the deal have successfully ‘convinced’ the defender to make the switch, and the transfer being finalised is merely a matter of details.
