Man Utd are set to offer £13m more than Min-Jae Kim‘s release clause in order to land one of Napoli‘s Serie A heroes, according to reports published in The Sun.

The South Korea International has been a regular in Luciano Spalletti‘s title-winning side and reportedly has a £40m release clause – with United set to offer £53m in order to secure the deal.

Man Utd centre-backs Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez have suffered long-term injuries, while Harry Maguire has struggled for game time under Erik ten Hag.

The 26-year-old joined Napoli from Fenerbache to replace Chelsea-bound Kalidou Koulibaly last season and has excelled in Serie A.

Kim has completed more passes than any other player in the division this term , while only seven players have made more passes in the opposition half.

Additionally, the South Korean offers immense aerial power, with only Verona striker Milan Djuric winning more duels this season – and he also ranks among the elite for interceptions and regaining possession.
