Even Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) appeared.
France’s ‘RMC Sport’ said on the 19th (Korean time), “Kim Min-jae has become a target for PSG’s general manager Louis Campos. I like Min-jae Kim’s technical ability and mental side. There was, but nothing has been agreed yet as the player himself prefers to go to England.”
Kim Min-jae카지노사이트 played a big role in Fenerbahce last season. Even though it was his first foray into the European stage, the word ‘adaptation’ was overshadowed by it. Naturally, many teams showed interest in Kim Min-jae. In the end, he had to move the team after one year with Fenerbahçe. His destination was Napoli in Italy’s Serie A.
When Kim Min-jae first joined, there were concerns. Kim Min-jae’s predecessor, Kalidou Koulibaly, has been evaluated as the main center back of Napoli and the top defender of Italy’s Serie A for a long time with his overwhelming physicality. There were opinions expressing doubts about whether Kim Min-jae, who had no major league experience, could fill the void left by Koulibaly.
However, Kim Min-jae confidently proved himself. Kim Min-jae, who quickly took the starting position, has played in 33 Serie A matches so far. And Napoli achieved the feat of lifting the Serie A championship cup for the first time in 33 years since the 1989-90 season, thanks to the performance of Kim Min-jae, who stood firm in the rear.
Naturally, the value of Kim Min-jae skyrocketed. According to the soccer statistics media ‘TransferMarkt’, the ransom of Kim Min-jae, which was 25 million euros (approximately 36.2 billion won) immediately after joining Napoli, has risen to 50 million euros (approximately 72.4 billion won). He has risen twice as much. He is not much different from Son Heung-min, who is worth 60 million euros (approximately 86.9 billion won).
He was also nominated for the Serie A Team of the Year. A total of 13 candidates were selected for the defender category, and Kim Min-jae also took one spot. Kim Min-jae will compete with Chris Smalling (AS Roma), Glaisong Bremer (Juventus), Alessio Romagnoli (Lazio), Giorgio Scalvini (Atalanta), Per Schurs (Torino), and Federico Bascirotto (Lecce). is going to unfold
Transfer rumors have also occurred. The team that was most likely to be the first was Manchester United. Manchester United are already showing their willingness to pay a buyout that includes Kim Min-jae. In Kim Min-jae’s contract, there is a clause allowing limited release from overseas clubs, which is valid for the first two weeks of July. The amount is around 50 million euros.
Currently, among Manchester United’s centerback resources, Lisandro Martinez and Rafael Baran are the players who are being used as the main players. However, Baran has frequent injuries, big and small. Here, the future of candidate center back Harry Maguire is uncertain. Coach Erik ten Haag had a plan to let go of players who didn’t live up to expectations and bring in clear contenders.
In the midst of this, Newcastle came to mind. Newcastle welcomed Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund (PIF) as its new owner in October 2021. Afterwards, after appointing manager Eddie Howe, he made aggressive investments little by little. And now we are seeing the effect. It is ranked 3rd in the English Premier League (EPL).
Newcastle can compete in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season if it can keep its current ranking in the remaining three games. And if you achieve your goal, you will be able to strengthen your power, and center back is also one of the positions that need scouting.
Now even PSG is being mentioned as a candidate. PSG is in the first round of Ligue 1 in France. This season, too, they are leading the table with 6 points ahead of second-placed Reims. PSG’s centre-back resources include Marquinhos, Sergio Ramos, Danilo Pereira and Fresnel Kimpembe. Of these, Ramos is 37 years old and Danilo is 31, so he needs a replacement.
