PSG target summer move for Napoli centre-back Kim Min-jae

Paris Saint-Germain are among the clubs interested in a summer move for Napoli centre-back Kim Min-jae, reports Foot Mercato via La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The South Korean defender has taken Serie A by storm this season, establishing him as one of the best centre-backs in Europe.

The 26-year-old has been pivotal behind the Partenopei’s fairytale run this season – 19 points clear at the top of Serie A and one of the favourites for the Champions League.

Kim has been as instrumental as Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, and his stellar form has caught the attention of top European clubs.

It has also been added that the South Korean international has a special release clause in his contract, which will allow the clubs to sign him for around €60 million.

Most importantly, the clause will be valid only between July 1-15 this year.

The clause has been included to facilitate Kim with an exit if he wishes to leave the Diego Maradona Stadium.

Recent reports have stated that the Partenopei are open to selling Kim as they feel they can’t keep hold of all their prized assets.

However, the former Fenerbahce star has refused to discuss his future, stating that he is focused on the current campaign with the Partenopei.

PSG have added Kim to their list of potential defensive targets, having already reached an agreement for the free transfer of Milan Skriniar in the summer.

Besides Les Parisiens, Manchester United have also registered their interest in the sturdy centre-back, with the futures of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof hanging in the balance.
