Napoli’s general manager said he would renew a key player. He is in a position that he will not rush because there is a contract period. Kim Min-jae’s contract renewal was also not specifically mentioned.
European football expert ‘Fabrizio Romano’ moved the words of Napoli general manager Cristiano Giuntoli on the 16th (Korean time). “Are contract renewals under way for Kim Min-jae, Victor Osimen and Hvica Kvarachhelia? They have signed long-term contracts. We are not in a hurry. We will know when summer arrives,” said Giuntoli.
Kim Min-jae joined Napoli from Fenerbahce last summer. Quite a few teams, including France’s Ligue 1, sent love calls, but the most active team was Napoli. He paid a buyout to Fenerbahce and succeeded in recruiting Kim Min-jae.
Napoli brought in Kim Min-jae as a substitute for Kalidou Koulibaly, and signed a 3+2 year contract with number 3 on the back. He included a buyout of 45 million euros (approximately 60 billion won), which applies only to overseas clubs. This amount is temporarily activated from July 1st to 15th of this year.
Napoli’s judgment was correct. Kim Min-jae showed overwhelming performance in his debut season. From before his debut to the present, he has been growing steadily without ups and downs. He is central to the build-up of Napoli’s back and has been key among the core. He showed his presence beyond Italian Serie A to the UEFA Champions League. 먹튀검증
In Italy, the evaluation of “world class talent” is dominant. An overwhelming team is watching Min-jae Kim for his overwhelming performance. Manchester United has sent scouts to Napoli since October last year, and has been linked with Real Madrid, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
For a top European club, 45 million euros is not a lot of money. According to local reports, Napoli is trying to delete or raise the buyout and raise the weekly wage through contract renewal negotiations with Kim Min-jae. This is in contrast to Giuntoli’s words “not in a hurry”.
Kim Min-jae’s side also focuses on the season rather than renewing the contract. Napoli came close to winning the trophy after 33 years in the 2022-23 season and also advanced to the quarterfinals of the Champions League. When all schedules for the second half of the year are over, full-scale negotiations are expected to begin.
