Kim Min-jae seems to be on the verge of a transfer when Manchester United pay his release clause, as Napoli identify Feyenoord’s David Hancko as his replacement.

The South Korea international has only been in Naples for one season, joining from Fenerbahce last summer for €18m.

According to Il Mattino, the deal with Manchester United is essentially done and Kim is considered a former Napoli player already, especially after moving trucks took away the furniture from his house in the city.

He has agreed personal terms at £9m per season and the release clause is worth circa €50m, but is variable depending on the revenue of the club doing the buying.

Kim’s replacement would be Feyenoord defender Hancko, who has an asking price of circa €23m.

Napoli continue to negotiate, as their initial offer is believed to be in the region of €18m.

The 25-year-old Slovakia international is no stranger to Serie A, as he was on Fiorentina’s books from 2018 to 2021, even if he spent most of that on loan at Sparta Prague.
