Ten Hag target bid farewell to teammates ahead of proposed Manchester United move: Set to become one of United’s first signings of the summer

It has been reported that Kim Min-jae, a defender for NAPOLI, has said goodbye to his fellow players as he prepares to join Manchester United.

The Serie A champions have accepted that they will be parting ways with the 26-year-old during the upcoming summer transfer window, as United is prepared to activate his release clause worth £43 million.

Il Mattino, an Italian outlet, reports that Kim Min-jae is making preparations for his transfer to Old Trafford. However, he will not be able to immediately join the team. Due to his South Korean citizenship, Kim is obligated to fulfill compulsory military service.

According to South Korean law, individuals under the age of 28 must complete 21 months of national service unless they are exempt.

Both Kim Min-jae and Tottenham’s Son Heung-min secured exemption from military service after their contribution to South Korea’s gold medal victory at the Asian Games in 2018. As a result, their conscription period was reduced to a few weeks of basic training.

Son completed his military training in April 2020, while Kim is anticipated to finish his training this month. To fulfill this obligation, the defender will return to South Korea, causing him to miss the upcoming set of international matches.

After completing his training, Kim is expected to take a brief break before making his journey to England to join Manchester United.

Kim Min-jae is poised to be one of the initial signings made by Erik ten Hag during the summer transfer window.

In addition to Kim, there have been strong rumors linking Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount with a move to Manchester United.

According to reports, personal terms have been agreed upon between Man Utd and the English international. However, the club is hesitant to meet Chelsea’s valuation, which stands at £70 million plus potential additional payments.
