Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), a French rejected club, also tried to dip their feet into the ‘iron pillar’ Kim Min-jae (27, Naples) but failed.
On the 19th (Korean time),토스카지노 French media RMC Sport reported, “Korean defender Kim Min-jae, who became the Italian champion with Naples, was targeted by PSG general manager Luis Campos in PSG’s summer transfer window.”
“I like Kim Min-jae’s technical ability, but I also like the mental aspect. In particular, I think his ability to adapt to the environment in Paris, France, is compatible with PSG,” he added.
In fact, there was also a Paris meeting between the general manager and Kim Min-jae’s agent. However, the meeting ended without even starting negotiations. ‘RMC Sport’ said, “Since Kim Min-jae prefers the English Premier League (EPL), we cannot currently find an agreement. In addition, there is a personal negotiation with Manchester United. When the agent said that he did not agree to the transfer, other clubs also I inquired about Kim Min-jae’s recruitment.”

In the end, the place Kim Min-jae was looking at was the EPL he had dreamed of since childhood. All the teams that want Kim Min-jae on the English stage are top-ranked big clubs. While Manchester United is at the forefront of the scouting battle to the extent that it even proceeds with individual negotiations, Newcastle, which has become the world’s richest club after being acquired by the Saudi National Wealth Fund (PIF) in 2021, has joined. Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European football transfer market, told the British media ‘Give Me Sports’, “Newcastle are looking into Min-jae Kim’s situation. Over the past few weeks, scouts have been dispatched to check Min-jae Kim’s performance.”
Here, ‘Manchester rival’ Man City is also saving the fire. ‘Calcio Mercato’ said, “Man United will face competition from rivals Manchester City for the signing of Kim Min-jae. So far, United seem to have the upper hand.” “It may be necessary for these clubs to secure qualification for the European Champions League (UCL) if they want to sign a contract with Kim Min-jae. It is important to finish in the top four of the league this season,” he added.

As reported by ‘Calcio Mercato’, Kim Min-jae’s side is likely to negotiate with a team that has tickets to UCL. In the case of PSG, which was not an EPL team and was pushed to the lower ranks in negotiations, it is not expected to be easy to change its mind without clear treatment as it has pointed out Min-jae Kim as a replacement for Sergio Ramos, who is likely to leave for Saudi Arabia. ‘Il Martino’, a local newspaper in Naples, Italy, is raising credibility with more specific details after first reporting on Min-jae Kim’s Manchester United. ‘Il Martino’ said on the same day, “Kim Min-jae agreed to join Manchester United for a weekly wage of 150,000 pounds (about 249 million won).” “The Korean defender (Kim Min-jae) said ‘yes’ to the Red Devils (Man Utd), and if the transfer goes through, it will be four times his current salary,” he said. This is the condition that PSG should use as a reference point.
