Manchester City of the English Premier League (EPL). Equipped with the ‘oil money’ of the Middle East, they are the richest club in the EPL.
Is that why? They aren’t paying much attention to players with low price tags. It is Kim Min-jae (Napoli). Kim Min-jae’s buyout is 40 million pounds (65.2 billion won). Many European clubs cheered for Kim Min-jae’s low price tag compared to his value and promoted his recruitment.
While Manchester United was the most active, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Liverpool, and Tottenham were linked with Kim Min-jae. Recently, news that Man City is interested in Kim Min-jae has also been reported.
However, Man City seems to have taken one step out of recruiting Kim Min-jae. Is it because there is a precedent for attracting only the best and most expensive players in the world? Also, because Manchester United is so active, and local media are reporting that the transfer to Man United is certain, it may be that he gave up.
The key is that Manchester City are actively wanting a central defender who is far more expensive than Kim Min-jae.
The main character is Leipzig’s central defender Joshko Gbardiol. As a 21-year-old Shin Sung, he played a big role in the Croatia national team uniform at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Gbardiol, who was mentioned as one of the hottest stars in the Qatar World Cup, has been pointed out as a defender who will dominate the next generation of world football. His ransom is estimated to be over 100 million euros (142.1 billion won).
While Man City is focusing on Gbardiol, Kim Min-jae is expected to be the second match between Manchester United and PSG.
England’s ‘The Sun’ said, “While Manchester United is running desperately to hunt Min-jae Kim, PSG is also working to recruit Min-jae Kim. Manchester United is ready to pay a £40 million release clause that will be activated on July 1. However, PSG also put Kim Min-jae on the wish list, and recently negotiated with Kim Min-jae.”토토사이트
At the same time, regarding Man City, he explained, “Man City has not completely given up on signing Kim Min-jae, but Man City’s number one central defender recruitment is Gbardiol. He is manager Pep Guardiola’s first recruit hopeful player.”
