Manchester United will soon bring in Shin Tae-yong’s players
DBasia.news – Manchester United were tempted by the centre-back who was Shin Tae-yong’s player when the coach was in charge of the South Korean national team. Who is he?
It is none other than the mainstay of Napoli defender, Kim Min-Jae.
Min-jae is the Indonesian national team coach’s favorite player in South Korea. Interestingly, Min-jae’s debut in South Korea was made when STY was the head coach there. Min-jae was also included in the STY-polished South Korean squad at the 2018 World Cup.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are starting to find their identity under Erik ten Hag and the tactician hopes to strengthen the club’s back line in the next transfer window.
It is known, Man United’s defense is relatively fragile in recent seasons. Ten Hag has found the right formula by pairing Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane. However, ten Hags still want an addition in the central defender area by bringing in Min-jae.
According to The Sun, the Red Devils are considering bringing the 25-year-old defender to Old Trafford and are ready to open lines of communication with Napoli as owner.
Min-jae has a 44 million pounds release clause at Napoli. However, the clause could not be activated in January, so Man United negotiated directly with the Partenopei.
Min-jae actually only landed in Napoli this summer after being brought in from Fenerbahce. However, this tall South Korean defender immediately stole the attention in Serie A with his impressive performances so far.
He has already scored twice at the Serie A stage and led Napoli to the top of the table.
The emergence of rumors of Man United transporting Min-jae indicates that ten Hag no longer fully trusts captain Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.
