Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly be in the market for a central defender this summer, with Presnel Kimpembe injured to start the 2023-24 season and Sergio Ramos set to become a free agent.
One name connected to the French giants is Napoli defender Kim Min-jae. However, if the South Korea international is a top target for sporting advisor Luis Campos, he faces competition.
Foot Mercato reported on Saturday that Manchester United is going all out to secure the 26-year-old center-back.
The French media outlet notes that discussions between the player’s entourage and the management of the Red Devils took place a few weeks ago.
Both parties talked about the details of a future contract. While Foot Mercato doesn’t reveal the exact figures, the Premier League side would have submitted a colossal offer in terms of salary to those close to the player.
Min-jae likes Napoli, especially since he will play in the UEFA Champions League for the 2023-24 season. Nonetheless, he also knows that the Premier League is the best and if the defender wants to play at the highest level and rub shoulders with the best.
As a result, PSG might have to scratch his name off their list of targets.
