Napoli will have to reconsider their decision if there is any offer from Manchester United for Kim Min-Jae.
The Peoples Person recently reported on the club’s interest in the centre-back, who is attracting interest from some of Europe’s top clubs.
It has a termination clause that can be activated if an offer of around 45 million euros arrives.
However, this cannot be exercised in the winter transfer window and interested clubs must wait until next summer.

The centre-back arrived at the Italian club as a replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly, who recently left for Premier League club Chelsea.
Sporting director Giuseppe Cannella, who has experience of changing the mindset of some of Italy’s lower league clubs, is reported by the outlet to say it would be difficult for the club to turn down an offer from United.
The manager spoke of how difficult it would be for Napoli to say no to a club the size of United.
“Manchester United on Kim? Napoli must think about it immediately, ”Area Napoli reports that he said.
“If they come for Kim, you have to get another one like him. Because if you make a capital gain of about 30 million in 6/7 months, you have to ask yourself?”
“If you have serious scouting and an outstanding sports director, you already have to know that if an offer comes in for Kim, you have to have the replacement ready.”
