Bayern Munich are set to steal the signature of Kim Min-jae from under Manchester United‘s noses, but not before he finishes his military service in South Korea. The Napoli stopper has already agreed personal terms of contract based off a proposed five-year deal by the German champions, however any deal will need to wait.
Several teams are touted to be in the transfer race for Min-jae, including the likes of Manchester City and Newcastle United. However, Kim has chosen Bayern as his next team.

His €50M release clause activates in the first week of July, making it likely when Bayern will finally strike concrete terms with the Partenopei management for the defender’s services. This is according to reports on Rai (via TuttoNapoli).
A €17M gross per season salary has been jotted down for Min-jae, who is set to replace Paris Saint-Germain bound Lucas Hernandez within Thomas Tuchel’s ranks.
