Manchester United have been handed a blow in the pursuit of Napoli defender Kim Min-jae with Bayern Munich now negotiating a fee for his representative.
The Foot Mercato journalist adds that Bayern have a €10 million salary package ready for Min-jae, and discussions are now ongoing over the agent fee.
United and Newcastle are still in the race for the 26-year-old star but in a separate update, Gianluca Di Marzio has said that Bayern are in the front seat.
United in danger of missing out on Min-jae
The Red Devils have identified Min-jae as their priority target to bolster the heart of the defence.
United’s main priority for the summer is a marquee striker, and they are expected to invest on that position first before considering a move for the South Korean star.
The club are now in danger of missing out on Min-jae with Bayern entering the pursuit.
Their negotiations over the agent fee suggests that they are growing confident of signing him.
Min-jae would be a fantastic acquisition for any top European club. He possesses superb ball control and averaged a pass completion rate of 91 per cent last season.
He is also brilliant with his tackling, clearances and has a strong aerial presence in the box. It would be a big blow if United miss out on him due to financial issues.
