Manchester United can sign €45m-rated star in short window this summer

Manchester United could land themselves a serious bargain in the coming months.

United signed Lisandro Martinez over the summer and he has formed a great partnership with Raphael Varane at the heart of United’s defence.

But outside of those two, Manchester United are struggling for quality depth, with Harry Maguire devoid of confidence every time he puts on a United shirt.

Varane is also pretty injury prone, so providing some cover for him would make sense.

Victor Lindelof, meanwhile, is not up to scratch when it comes to playing out from the back in Erik ten Hag’s system, so it is clear some more cover is needed.

The player seemingly being eyed up for this role is Kim Min-Jae of Napoli.

Kim Min-jae has only been with Napoli since the summer of 2022 but he is already one of the best centre-backs in the Serie A.

In that time the current league leaders have shipped just 16 goals, which is the best record in the division by some distance.

Kim also excels at progressing play, averaging 6.62 passes into the final third per 90, 29.39 forward passes per game and 4.39 progressive passes per 90.

And now, a report from Fichajes claims that Manchester United have shown an interest in signing the 26-year-old centre-back at the end of the season.

The player has a release clause in his contract worth around €45 million which can only be triggered during a period of 15 days in the summer.
