According to today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport (news image provided below), Kim negotiated an agreement with Man Utd at the end of the league season, after celebrating the last Scudetto party.
Furthermore, his agents formally informed Italian champions Napoli of his decision to go to Old Trafford.
However, the sale was slowed due to Manchester United’s “corporate problems,” and clubs like Newcastle, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich stepped in.
The German champions are now on the verge of signing the 26-year-old defender and are waiting to pay the requisite 50 million euros.
Kim will fly to complete his move with the Bavarians once his military service in South Korea is completed, much to the chagrin of Red Devils supporters.
Last season, the World Cup 2022 player was one of the greatest central defenders in the world, and he would have been an excellent signing for Erik Ten Hag.
Now, as a result of Manchester United’s internal problems, the club is losing a fantastic defender, without whom Napoli would not have won the Serie A.
The fee of 50 million euros for such a magnificent player is a steal, but Bayern Munich will be the ones to take advantage of the provision, which will be activated in the first fifteen days of July.
Who, in your opinion, should Erik Ten Hag add to bolster United’s defense?
