It’s a series of reversals. German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have made a move: they’ve signed Kim Min-jae + Victor Osimhen.
Shocking. ‘Hijacking’ Kim Min-jae, and targeting Osimen as well.
On the 15th (KST), Bayern Munich was added to the signing of Kim Min-jae. It happened.
Initially, it looked like he was headed to Manchester United. Local Italian and British media outlets made a big deal out of it. “Man Utd have already confirmed the signing of Kim Min-jae,” they reported, even specifying the transfer fee and weekly wage.
However, it was only a rumor. It’s true that United were the closest to signing Kim, but it wasn’t a done deal. In the end, Newcastle, PSG, and Chelsea joined the chase for Kim.
And then Bayern Munich entered the fray. With the words ‘HERE WE GO’, Fabrizio Romano, one of the most authoritative voices in the European soccer transfer market, wrote on his social media that ‘United were the closest to a deal, but nothing was finalized. Bayern Munich is the only club that wants to sign Kim Min-jae. There is a strong possibility that they have already spoken to the player. At the moment, Bayern Munich are at the forefront of the race for Kim Min-jae.
This means that Bayern Munich are the closest to signing Kim, not United. It’s a completely different message.
Eurosport reported on Friday that “Bayern Munich’s management team, led by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Christian Dresden and Thomas Tuchel, have already made contact with Kim.
Kim has been one of the best defenders this season. And he still has potential.
He took Napoli to the top of Serie A in just one season. He became their best defender. Thanks to his brilliance, Napoli won their first Scudetto in 33 years. He was named the best defender of the season.
In Italy, the ‘home of defense’ represented by Catenaccio, Kim Min-jae was rated as the best defender. Naturally, big clubs are inundated with offers. Moreover, Kim is the best value for money.
Napoli would only have to pay £51 million for his release clause. That’s a steal for a world-class center back.
What’s even more shocking is that Bayern Munich are also considering a move for Napoli teammate Victor Osimhen.
If Kim is the most valuable center-back in the European transfer market this summer, Osimhen is a frontline striker who has received numerous offers from top clubs. Alongside Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe, Osimhen is another highly valued striker.스포츠토토
In fact, with Manchester United having given up on Kane, they’ve set their sights on Victor Osimhen, and Real Madrid are also focused on Kylian Mbappe, but could make a move for Osimhen at any time.
Bayern Munich are expecting Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard to leave the club this summer. Kim Min-jae has been strongly touted as a replacement for both players. The Bavarians have calculated that the transfer fees that Hernandez and Fabregas would leave behind would be enough to bring in both Kim and Osimhen.
