Man Utd failing to make quick progress in Kim Min-jae transfer battle 

Manchester United need to speed up their negotiations with Kim Min-jae if they want the defender to move to Old Trafford this summer.

United have made ‘little progress’ in their negotiations with the defender, according to Foot Mercato.

Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Newcastle United are also monitoring the South Korean international’s situation.

He has a foreign release clause worth €60 million in his current contract, which will be active in the first fortnight of July.

Man Utd should not miss out on Kim Min-jae transfer

The 26-year-old started all bar three of Napoli’s Serie A games this season. 

He played a prominent role in helping the Italian outfit win their first league title in over three decades.

Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez have established themselves as the first-choice centre-back pair at United.

Erik ten Hag wants to bring in more competition and Min-jae would be a fantastic addition to the squad.

His arrival would mark the end of Harry Maguire’s stay at Old Trafford. 

The England international is now the fourth-choice defender for Ten Hag. He does not suit the Dutchman’s style of play.

By contrast, Min-jae is a swift passer of the ball and a proactive defender.

With Varane susceptible to injuries, United need a strong third centre-back to cover.

The uncertainty around the club’s ownership could be why United have not made much progress in their pursuit of Min-jae.

The Glazers need to provide more clarity on the sale process, or United will lose significant ground in the transfer window.
