The local interest in Kim Min-jae (27, Naples), the representative defender of the Korean national soccer team, is hot. In addition to English Premier League (EPL) Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain (France), Liverpool, one of the big clubs, jumped into the scouting match, local reports said that competition is intensifying.
England’s The Sun reported on the 30th (Korean time), “Man United suffered a blow as it became known that Liverpool had jumped into the Napoli star (Kim Min-jae)’s scout.”
Ahead of this season, Kim Min-jae, who left Fenerbahce (Turkiye) and wore the Napoli (Italy) uniform, established himself as the team’s main defender.안전놀이터
Kim Min-jae, a built-in center back, led Napoli to lead the Serie A and advance to the quarterfinals of the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL).
Naturally, interest in Kim Min-jae is growing.
The Sun said, “Clubs such as PSG and Tottenham (England) are also linked, but Liverpool seems to be most interested in Kim Min-jae.”
Citing an Italian report, the media explained, “Liverpool can pay 60 million pounds (about 96.5 billion won) for the signing of Kim Min-jae. If so, Man Utd’s recruitment plan will inevitably be canceled.”
Liverpool has a world-class center back called Virgil van Dijk (Netherlands), but overall they are struggling with the defensive hunting. He has been sluggish this season, allowing 29 runs in 26 league games.
The Sun said, “When Liverpool met Napoli in the UCL, Kim Min-jae played an impressive game” and also reported the background of the recruitment.
Meanwhile, Kim Min-jae recently expressed uncomfortable feelings about his transfer rumors. He said, “(Continued rumors) I am so uncomfortable. Rather than being shaken by transfer rumors, I will focus on Napoli.”
