Tottenham Hotspur can focus on carrying out signings after confirming the appointment of Ange Postecoglou as their new manager on Tuesday.

Spurs have looked at Napoli star Kim Min-jae and even made an attempt to try to bring him to north London in the summer. That’s at least what Sky Italia journalist Francesco Modugno, via Spazio Napoli, is reporting.

The centre-back has a clause valid between July 1st and July 15th and will say goodbye to the Serie A winners soon. According to the report, Tottenham tried to take him away from Napoli via his clause.

Spurs’ attempt had no result because the 26-year-old has agreed to join their league rivals Manchester United, says Modugno. This has been repeatedly reported in the Italian media for the past few weeks.

Manchester United have a ‘great appeal’ as they will play in the Champions League, while the north London club cannot offer European competition next season. This could be one of the reasons why the South Korea international refused to join Tottenham.

Postecoglou and Tottenham would have to look elsewhere if they need to sign a new centre-back in the market.
