Man Utd learn of buyout clause for Napoli defender Kim Min-jae

Manchester United are eyeing Napoli defender Kim Min-jae.

Only Spurs (21) have conceded more Prem goals than them (20) in the top eight this season.

Therefore, manager Erik ten Hag is hoping to bolster his numbers at the back, with Min-jae being targeted.

The 26-year-old only arrived at Napoli in the summer, but his outstanding form for the Serie A leaders has caught United's eye.

The South Korea international penned a three-year contract in Naples but could make a swift exit.

That's because Fabrizio Romano claims that he has a release clause of £40m.

However, that clause will only be active for just a fortnight, which means United will have to act quickly.
