That’s bad news for West Ham. David Moyes turned down the chance to sign the 26-year-old for absolute peanuts in 2019 – just £2.5 million!

The Scot desperately needs to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium this summer. It’s just such a shame that we didn’t sign the South Korea international two years ago.

Now he seems set to join Man United…

West Ham target Kim Min-jae could be Manchester United bound

Corriere dello Sport reckon that the 26-year-old Napoli star is set for a €58 million (£50 million) transfer to Man United this summer.

Since joining Napoli, the South Korean has gone on to establish himself as one of the world’s very best centre-backs. He is tall, aggressive in the challenge, commanding in the air and has really impressive pace for a central defender.

The 26-year-old is a superb reader of the game as well. He has been a huge hit in Naples, forming the cornerstone of a Napoli defence that has conceded just 26 goals in 36 Serie A games this season.

Kim Min-jae is an absolutely superb centre-back and has been described as ‘incredible’ by Forbes.

Manchester United will be getting a sensational player on their hands if they do sign Kim Min-jae this summer.

And West Ham boss David Moyes will be kicking himself if the South Korean does move to Old Trafford.
