Paris Saint-Germain has Spanish soccer legend Sergio Ramos as center back, Brazil national team Marquinhos, France national team Fresnel Kimpembe, and Portugal national team Danilo Pereira. Here, in the transfer market this summer, he is already planning to bring Milan Škriniar from Inter Milan as a free agent.

However, as Paris Saint-Germain is currently using a three-back tactic, it is a plan to further strengthen the depth of the defender. With Ramos turning 37, Danilo 31 and Marquinhos 29, the need to prepare for the future is also raised.

Unlike the weight of Kim Min-jae in Naples, the reason why the transfer is being proposed after one season is because of the buyout clause. According to Napoli sports director Christian Giuntoli, Napoli included a 50 million euro buyout clause in the contract with Kim Min-jae. This condition is active for only 15 days in the transfer window this summer for foreign clubs outside of Italy. If you meet the buyout clause, you can immediately set up a negotiating table with the player regardless of the club’s answer.

As Kim Min-jae is about to enter the training center next month, the prevailing view is that the actual transfer will be confirmed after July when the summer transfer market opens. An official from Kim Min-jae’s side said, “I saw rumors of a transfer to Manchester United. Nothing has been decided yet. The season is not over right now. There is no reason to be in a hurry. We are concentrating on finishing the current season.”
