When the release clause in Napoli defender Kim Min-jae’s contract becomes active at the beginning of July, Manchester United should have no problem completing the signing of him.

Despite having only moved to Napoli a year ago, Kim, who is 26 years old, has been linked with a summer transfer to Old Trafford for several months now. The South Korean international had a fantastic season as he was a key figure in the club’s remarkable run to win the Serie A title, but his contract has a release clause that precludes any possibility of negotiating a new deal for him to remain with the club.

The fact that the centre back has a release clause in his Napoli contract, which is estimated to be somewhere in the neighborhood of £43 million, makes the signing process significantly simpler for United. This provision will only be in effect from the 1st to the 15th of July, which means there is only a limited time left to finalize the transaction.

Il Mattino, a newspaper based in Naples, has made the assertion that Napoli are expecting Kim’s transfer to Manchester United to be finalized on the first of July. In addition to this, they are treating the transfer as if it has already taken place and as a result will acquire the services of Feyenoord’s Slovak defender David Hancko to serve as his direct replacement.

Kim had an outstanding season for Napoli, and although United’s central defense is not considered to be their top priority for the summer transfer window, the fact that he is available for such a clause and wants to move to Old Trafford makes the deal a possibility. Kim had an outstanding season for Napoli.

A report that was published in CalcioNapoli24 the week before last detailed how Kim bade farewell to the fans of Napoli and his teammates during the team’s final Serie A game of the season, which was a victory over Sampdoria. According to the same report, Napoli reportedly wanted to keep the South Korean star but were unable to compete with the financial package that United offered..
