Man Utd make last-ditch bid for Kim Min-jae…but ‘countdown’ to Bayern Munich move continues

Manchester United also waited until July 1. It is clear that they wanted Kim Min-jae (Napoli).

On July 9 (KST), British media outlet People’s Spurs reported that “Manchester United tried to hijack Kim Min-jae, who is heading to Bayern Munich,” and that they “waited until July 1, when Kim’s buyout kicks in, and tried to intercept him two weeks ago.”

In fact, it was Manchester United who were first in the race to sign Kim. As they planned to build for the new season, they identified Kim as a possible center-back reinforcement. Even before the end of the 2022-23 season, the Red Devils were vocal about their intention to pay Napoli a buyout clause to prevent other clubs from joining the race.

However, the situation changed when Bayern Munich entered the picture. Apparently, the Bavarians outbid Manchester United in several areas. From personal agreements such as salaries to trophies, the two clubs were not evenly matched.

According to the media, the player wanted to join Bayern Munich and rejected offers from several big clubs, including Manchester United.

Now, it’s just a matter of time before he joins Bayern Munich. Considering that it seemed like an official announcement would follow his departure from the training center on the 6th of this month, things are coming to a close, albeit slowly. “Bayern Munich have paid Napoli a buyout clause and will soon announce a five-year contract for Kim Min-jae,” according to Germany’s Sky Sports. 토토사이트
