Newcastle United are among Manchester United’s competitors for Kim Min-jae.

Portuguese journalist Bruno Andrade said on July 27 (KST), “Kim Min-jae will soon move to the English Premier League (EPL). Manchester United and Newcastle are in the race. Both teams have already expressed their willingness to pay the amount Napoli is asking for. The decision is up to Kim Min-jae,” the report said.

At Napoli, Kim has become one of the best center backs in Europe with his top-notch defense. In addition to his defensive prowess, he was also highly regarded for his forward movement and build-up play. He was praised for his revolutionary role in helping Napoli win the Serie A title for the first time in 33 years since the 1989-90 season.

He was nominated for Serie A Team of the Year and is a strong contender for Defender of the Year. Barring any upsets, he’ll win the award. His record is overwhelming. According to soccer stats site Squawka, Kim had the most touches of the ball, the most passes into the opponent’s half, and the most aerial contests. Squawka calls him a “monster,” and it’s a fitting nickname.

Now that he’s a hot commodity, Kim is a favorite to join Manchester United. Other teams are also interested, but the Red Devils are the most active and concrete in their interest. The Red Devils have sent scouts to observe and are willing to pay more than a buyout.

Newcastle has emerged as a contender. Newcastle have been linked to the player before. Newcastle have rebounded from last season with Saudi capital at their backs. They went from hovering around the relegation zone to mid-table. This was thanks to a combination of investment and the leadership of Eddie Howe. This season, they broke the big six and qualified for the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

Fabrizio Romano, a highly respected journalist working for The Guardian, also acknowledged Newcastle’s interest in Kim Min-jae. “Newcastle are also targeting Kim Min-jae,” he wrote on The Hard Tackle. Newcastle are ready to part ways with Jamal Lascelles. They want to let him go and sign Kim Min-jae. Newcastle are financially healthy. They can afford to pay the buyout for Kim Min-jae.”스포츠토토

If he goes to Newcastle, the competition for a starting spot could be easier than at United. Competing with Sven Botman and Fabian Schurrle would be better than Rafael Varane and Lisandro Martinez. UCL is also an attractive option as it is a team that is getting better and better.

The choice is up to Kim Min-jae. All eyes are on Kim Min-jae, who seems to be headed to the EPL for now.
