'Nonsense': Kim Min-jae breaks silence on Man Utd rumours

'Nonsense': Kim Min-jae breaks silence on Man Utd rumours

Football Transfer Centre

Napoli defender Kim Min-jae has branded the ongoing transfer speculation with Manchester United as 'nonsense'.

The South Korean star joined the Naples outfit from Fenerbahce last summer and he has been a revelation in defence.

The centre-back has excelled with his passing, tackling, interceptions and ability to win aerial duels in and out of the box.

The 26-year-old is a complete package and this has led to speculation that he could head for the exit door during the summer.

There is currently a €48m release clause in his contract applicable for foreign clubs, but Min-jae has rubbished any claims.

Speaking to reporters, he said that he is uncomfortable with the rumours and added that he is solely focused on Napoli at the moment.

He said: "As you know, those rumours are not true at all. It's uncomfortable. I wish you don't spread those stories. There are so many important matches to go and right now I only want to focus on Napoli."
