Is there a problem with Kim Minjae?

Kim Min-jae’s transfer process is known to be more complicated than expected.

Germany’s “Bilt” said on the 16th (Korea Standard Time), “Munich fans are wondering why Kim Min-jae’s transfer has not yet been announced. In particular, the 16th was the deadline for Kim Min-jae’s 50 million euros (about 71.5 billion won) buyout clause to be activated. Kim Min-jae’s official announcement takes a long time because negotiations with his club (Napoli) are difficult, he reported.

“There is a problem with Napoli regarding the handling of contracts and transfers. Munich’s legal department took on a more complex case than first thought. However, there is no doubt that Munich will succeed in the transfer. Kim Min-jae will sign a contract with Munich until June 2028, and will accompany him on the Asian tour of Japan and Singapore, he added.

Napoli recognized Kim Min-jae’s value and potential early and inserted a “buy-out.” Buyout is the amount set to allow transfer negotiations with Kim Min-jae immediately without consulting Napoli if Munich, which wants to recruit Kim Min-jae, pays the promised buyout amount to Napoli.

Kim Min-jae’s buyout is known to be 50 million euros. The buyout is the amount set by Napoli and Kim Min-jae at the time of the transfer. But there are conditions for invoking buyouts. It is a condition that will be activated from July 1 to 15 only for overseas clubs.

Kim Min-jae’s buyout was triggered at 7 a.m. on the 16th in Korean time. It was known that Munich had to pay 50 million euros to Naples by that time to negotiate directly with Kim Min-jae. Many local media have also specified this and mentioned that Kim Min-jae’s negotiations will be completed before the 16th.

But the dead line is past. And yet it’s still quiet. This suggests that the period of Kim Min-jae’s buyout invocation condition may be different from that disclosed to the media. In fact, Kim Min-jae’s buyout amount is not accurate. Some media outlets listed it as 48 million euros (about 68.5 billion won), while others claimed 50 million euros. Therefore, it is estimated that the period of activation will also vary somewhat.

Of course, Munich has completed all individual negotiations with Kim Min-jae. Kim Min-jae has already completed a medical test. Germany’s “Bilt” said on the 7th, “This has never happened in Munich. Kim Min-jae served in the military until the 6th. However, instead of going to Germany for a Munich medical test, Kim stayed in Korea. This is the craziest medical test in Munich history. An official announcement will be made in the next few days,” he said.

Thomas Tuchel also mentioned Kim Min-jae indirectly. Munich held an official press conference for Tuchel ahead of the 2023-24 season on the 15th. Munich called up the squad on the 14th. Munich will conduct training at the Tegernze training camp from the 15th to the 20th, and then hold an Asian tour from the 24th to the 3rd of next month. Munich will meet Manchester City (26th) and Kawasaki Frontale (29th) in Japan before moving to Singapore to face Liverpool (2nd).

Along with questions about the team’s situation and the players who newly joined the team, there were questions about the players who are currently rumored to be transferred. The first is Harry Kane. Tuchel expressed caution. He said: “I’m not going to comment on players who aren’t signed to us. But we are watching this situation. If we are confident that the player will help us, we will do our best,” he declined to answer.

However, regarding Kim Min-jae’s question, it was different from Kane’s answer. It was bold,” Tuchel said, “We want to replace Luca Hernandez well. It’s no secret who should take over. “I won’t mention the name because it may not help negotiations at the moment, but I will try to announce it soon,” he said indirectly referring to Kim Min-jae.

Munich has been very active. Kim Min-jae was discharged from the military after completing basic training on the 6th. It was immediately reported that he would undergo a medical test. Munich medical staff has already stepped on Korean soil, and Kim Min-jae is also known to have moved to Seoul immediately to conduct medical tests.

Florian Flettenberg, a reporter for Germany’s Sky Sports, said on the 6th, “Kim Min-jae will complete the medical test in Korea. Munich medical staff arrived in Korea the past few hours ago and are on the scene. Munich will launch a buyout of 50 million euros (about 70.8 billion won) in the next few days. The contract period is until June 2028, he said, adding that Munich will soon complete recruiting Kim Min-jae.

If Kim Min-jae leaves the hospital, he is expected to go through the transfer process immediately and wear a Munich uniform. But it was more complicated than I thought. Italy’s Il Martino said, “Munich and Kim Min-jae have completed all the procedures. However, the value of the amount to be paid to Napoli continues to change as huge amounts, including the amount to be paid to the clubs where Kim Min-jae played, are intertwined, he explained the reason for the delay.

However, it was expected that an official announcement would be made soon. Il Martino said, “However, there is no doubt about Kim Min-jae’s transfer to Munich.” Kim Min-jae has already taken a medical test. The only question is whether the transfer will be announced in Lake Tejern or South Korea. A journalist in charge of Kim Min-jae’s transfer said, “Kim Min-jae will come to Munich even by swimming in the Atlantic Ocean if necessary.”

In addition, Munich has already fully prepared to recruit Kim Min-jae. Reporter Flettenberg said on the 16th of last month, “Munich is preparing to say goodbye to Hernandez and Benjamin Pavar. They are focusing on recruiting Kim Min-jae. Munich is currently working on a verbal contract with Kim Min-jae. The talks went smoothly, and the speed will increase after the A match period,” he explained.

Hernandez wore a Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) uniform. Munich plans to recruit Kim Min-jae for Hernandez’s sale. From Munich’s point of view, it is a perfect replacement. It brings Kim Min-jae for €50-58 million, but it sells Hernandez for €45 million. Munich is the same as recruiting Kim Min-jae for 5 to 13 million euros (about 7 to 19 billion won).

Britain’s “90min” released an illustration of Kim Min-jae coming through the door and Hernandez going out the door through its official SNS channel, saying, “One defender came in the door, and one went out. Will they be satisfied?” added the phrase.

Kim Min-jae, who wore a Napoli uniform last summer, immediately became a key player. Kim Min-jae was trusted by coach Luciano Spalletti to the extent that he played in all but two of Napoli’s matches this season. Kim Min-jae also contributed to Scudeto after 33 years of his team and was praised for recruiting the best players.

It is simply a ‘monster’. Based on the soccer statistics media “Foot Mob,” Kim Min-jae recorded a season rating of 7.43 (10th overall in Serie A), 75.1% (1st overall) of pass accuracy per 90 minutes, 1.2 intercepts per 90 minutes (52nd overall), and 3.6 clearing per 90 minutes (23rd overall).

Kim Min-jae swept the awards this season. In September, it won the Player of the Month Award by the Serie A Secretariat of Italy and the Player of the Month Award by the Italian Football Association in October. As a result, Kim Min-jae won the honor for the first time since Kalidou Koulibaly won the Player of the Month award for the first time as a defender in the 2021-22 season.

Kim Min-jae, who even lifted Scudeto, was also selected as the Italian Serie A Team of the Season-TOTS in the 2022-23 season. On top of that, he won all the awards he could receive as a defender by winning the “best defender.”

Naturally, the ransom skyrocketed. Kim Min-jae, who played for Jeonbuk Hyundai in 2018, recorded a ransom of 1.2 million euros (about 1.7 billion won), based on the soccer statistics media “TransferMarkt.” It rose to 2 million euros (about 2.8 billion won) in Guoan, Beijing, and soared to 6.5 million euros (about 9.3 billion won) after transferring Fenerbahce. It was just the beginning. Since then, Kim Min-jae’s ransom has risen sharply. Since moving to Napoli, it has surpassed 25 million euros (about 36 billion won) and hit 60 million euros (about 86.5 billion won) in the most recent update. This is so high that it ranks first in Korea, first in Asia, and eighth among center backs.

Munich sent a love call to this performance and is expected to be coached by Tuchel soon. Competition for the starting lineup is also not unreasonable. Munich was last season Upamecano and Matthijs de Ligt played as the main center backs. If it is Kim Min-jae’s performance last season, he is likely to push out Right-wing Meccano and play as a main player.

Specific salaries were also disclosed. “Kim Min-jae will sign a contract with Munich by 2028,” Flettenberg said. Munich is 10 million euros to 12 million euros (about 143 to 17.2 billion won) per year. There are many opinions on whether the annual salary is before or after tax. Reporter Flettenberg used the expression “gross” directly, and the dictionary meaning of “gross” is the amount before tax as it is “to make profits (the amount before tax deduction).”

It is the 12th to 13th highest level in Munich. Sadio Mane is the highest-paid player in Munich based on the “capology” that quantifies the annual salary of the sports world. Manet is receiving an annual salary of 22 million euros (about 31.5 billion won). Manuel Neuer will then receive 21 million euros (about 30 billion won). Kim Minjae gets 10 million euros Upamecano and Alfonso Davis will receive an annual salary of 11.25 million euros (about 16 billion won).
