Regardless of the whether the player wants to talk about transfer rumours or not, Manchester United continue to be pushed as an interested party in Kim Min-jae.

The South Korea international has been in great form for Napoli since signing from Fenerbahçe in the summer window, replacing Kalidou Koulibaly ideally.

Talk of a release clause in his contract has also been rife, which would facilitate a transfer in the summer, and this is something the Serie A side are worried about.

Still, Manchester United, according to TuttoMercatoWeb, are still lurking, as the Italian website explain that Napoli are preparing ‘new contacts’ with the defender’s entourage.

The aim is to ‘remove or increase the €50m clause valid for abroad’, and there has apparently been ‘contact’ with Paris Saint-Germain, as well as the Red Devils.

It’s said Manchester United are ‘warming up their engines’ and ‘preparing the assault’ for the player, before TuttoMercatoWeb recall that the likes of Juventus and Inter were also after him in the summer.

The latter came very close to signing Kim, but were waiting for a response from Bremer, and they eventually ended up losing out on both, with the former going to Napoli and the latter signing for Juventus.

Now, Manchester United could make a move, although whether they manage to convince him to hold off on signing a new contract in Naples remains to be seen.
