Manchester United report: First signing of the season ‘fully agreed’



Manchester United have reportedly completed their first signing of the season, having only ended the previous campaign at the weekend.

Manchester United have already completed their first signing of the summer transfer window, according to one report.

Lisandro Martinez has been missing for the run-in under Erik Ten Hag – and now, it seems the Dutchman has made the centre of defence his priority once more with an imminent signing.

Corriere dello Sport in Italy claims that United’s first signing of the window, Kim Min-jae from Napoli, has already been agreed. The report states that the club will speak to Kim and his agents again this week ahead of a medical and documentation to be signed.

The deal won’t be made official just yet, however, due to a clause in the South Korean’s current contract.

From July 1, Kim has a €60 million (£51.6m) release clause, according to the source. This is what Manchester United have agreed to trigger, with Tuttomercatoweb claiming that the 20-time English champions have also agreed a €3m settlement to sort this deal quickly.

Kim only moved to Napoli last summer from Fenerbahce in a deal believed to be worth around €18m
The move for Kim will likely relegate Raphael Varane to being cover, with the Frenchman having suffered with injury issues during his time at Old Trafford. Harry Maguire is expected to leave the club.

Kim is valued at €50m by Transfermarkt.
