Manchester United are reportedly in concrete negotiations to sign Napoli defender Kim Min-jae this summer.
The South Korean has had a fascinating season with the Naples outfit following his move from Fenerbahce.
His displays have caught the eye of United and Corriere dello Sport claim that talks are now advanced with his agents.
The Red Devils are aware of the foreign release clause in his contract and they plan to trigger it between July 1-15.
Meanwhile, it is revealed that Napoli are braced for the central defender’s exit as he has no plans of removing the clause.
The club have proposed a new deal to eliminate the valuation but Min-jae looks set to pursue a move away from Italy.
A switch to England seems his priority at the moment. United are leading the race but they are not alone in the pursuit.
Manchester City are also keeping tabs on the South Korean and could provide strong competition to the Red Devils.
