Latest Bayern Munich Transfer News: Bayern now have to only pay the release clause of Kim Min-jae as the players has already agreed personal terms with the club
A deal to capture center-back Kim Min-jae looks to be nearing conclusion, which is an encouraging development for Bayern Munich. The 26-year-old South Korean international has been strongly linked with a move to the German powerhouses after playing a pivotal part in Napoli’s victorious Serie A campaign during the 2022–23 season. Although other teams, including Manchester United, have expressed interest, it appears like Bayern Munich is about to complete the move.
Fabrizio Romano, a transfer analyst, gave an update on the issue and said Bayern Munich is still hopeful the Kim Min-jae deal will be completed. Since the player has apparently reached an agreement on personal terms, the emphasis is now on settling important issues when his military duty is finished. According to Romano’s tweet, Bayern Munich has a contract ready for Kim until June 2028 and is now required to pay the release clause.
The conclusion of personal terms means that Kim’s transfer to Bayern Munich is almost a formality because of the release clause, which is estimated to be worth approximately €50 million. The player is anticipated to sign a five-year contract with the Bavarian club, barring any unforeseen developments. If the trade goes through, Lucas Hernández, who is expected to leave for Paris Saint-Germain, would be replaced.
Following that, Fabrizio Romano provided an update in which he revealed insider information indicating that Bayern Munich and Kim Min-jae had verbally agreed to every aspect of the move, clearing the door for it to proceed in the coming days. According to Romano’s tweet, Kim has agreed to the proposed deal, and it will be in effect until 2028.
