The need for Kim Min-jae grows even more…Munich in contact with PSG over ‘CB sale’ → player also starts talks
Luca Hernandez has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Bayern Munich are looking to sign Kim Min-jae this summer. As one of the best center backs in the 2022-23 season, he has attracted interest from many clubs and the Bavarians have been actively pursuing his signature.
Negotiations have progressed quickly. After Munich insider Florian Plettenberg broke the news of Kim’s transfer on Friday (July 15), the story was quickly updated. European football transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano also confirmed the news on social media on the 18th, writing, “The deal between Munich and Kim Min-jae is being finalized. The contract is for five years. Kim is ready to accept. The buyout clause will take effect on July 1. Unless another club offers him a bigger salary, he will join Munich.”
The situation hasn’t changed. On the 20th, Romano continued, “Nothing has changed. Munich are the frontrunners for Kim and the deal is almost complete. This week will be crucial,” adding that Kim’s move to Munich is on track.
Of course, there were variables: “original club” Napoli offered a contract extension that removed the buyout clause, and Manchester City, the “best team” in Europe, remained interested in Kim. Philipp Kessler, who covers Munich for Münchner Merkur, a regional Bavarian newspaper, wrote on social media on Tuesday that “the only risk is that Man City are still interested.
However, it was not enough to change the situation. “The talks between Kim and Munich are ongoing and definitely positive! Munich is hoping to finalize the deal in the next few days. Kim Min-jae also wants to join Munich and the transfer is very close.”
In this situation, Munich’s need for Kim has increased even more. 토토사이트 This is because there is a higher chance of departures from existing resources. In the first place, Munich’s need for center back reinforcements was due to the potential departure of Benjamin Pavard and Lukaku. While that hasn’t happened yet, Lukaku has begun to make moves in earnest.
According to German outlet Bild, “PSG have made contact with Munich to complete the transfer of Lukaku. The two clubs have opened talks, but no official bid has been made yet. The transfer fee for Lukaku is expected to be at least 50 million euros ($71.1 billion).” French outlet RMC Sport also reported the same news.
