‘Chelsea are dreaming of hijacking the world’s best defender, who is being targeted by Manchester United,’ the Chelsea Chronicle reported on Wednesday (June 12).
‘Chelsea are one of many clubs keen to hijack Man Utd transfer target Kim Min-jae,’ the publication said, noting that ‘Kim has been one of Napoli’s most impressive performers in their rise to the Serie A championship’. ‘Kim is considered one of the best defenders in the world,’ he added.
Kim has been heavily linked with a move to Man Utd, and the race to sign him has been in the spotlight recently. On the 12th, Italian media outlet Il Napolista reported that ‘Kim Min-jae’s transfer talks with Manchester United have reached a stalemate and Newcastle United have taken the lead in the race to sign him. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Chelsea have also joined the race to sign Kim. Kim is a top priority for United, but negotiations have stalled in recent weeks.
British outlet Football365 also criticized United for failing to finalize the deal on Wednesday. “United are dragging their feet on signing players. The transfer window opens in two days. The big clubs in the Premier League are sticking to their plans ahead of the transfer window, with Liverpool finalizing the signing of McAllister. It’s no secret that United will sign Kim Min-Jae. It was even claimed that the department in charge of player recruitment at United had a specific plan, and that it would be “negligent” if they didn’t.
In addition to the signing of Kim, the Red Devils are likely to overhaul their squad. According to British outlet 90min, ‘United are concerned that Maguire’s refusal to accept his departure will affect their chances of signing a new elite defender. The Red Devils have held talks with Napoli’s Kim Min-Jae as they look to add a defender to their ranks,” and “If Maguire refuses to move on, United may have to change their strategy for signing defenders.
