Newcastle United’s competition to recruit Kim Min-jae is attracting attention.
On the 18th (Korean time), England’s Give Miss Sport said, ‘Newcastle is considering signing Kim Min-jae. Newcastle sent a scout to observe Kim Min-jae. Kim Min-jae is a player who connects with the world’s best big clubs,’ he said.
The British Football Fancast also mentioned the possibility of Newcastle’s recruitment of Kim Min-jae, saying, “Newcastle may challenge Kim Min-jae ahead of the 2023-24 season.” In particular, ‘Kim Min-jae played an important role in Napoli’s victory by performing impressively from the rear. Recruiting Kim Min-jae can replace Newcastle defender Cher, who turns 32, and upgrade the Newcastle defense. Kim Min-jae’s ability to own the ball can improve the way Newcastle play from the back’.
Newcastle has conceded only 31 goals in 35 Premier League games this season, demonstrating a stable defense with the lowest point in the league. Newcastle expects to improve not only stable defense but also build-up ability through the recruitment of Kim Min-jae, while Botman and Cher are active as a center back combination.안전놀이터

Newcastle, which has been acquired by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund and is evaluated as the club with the most powerful financial power in the Premier League, is attracting attention for the possibility of aggressive player recruitment after the end of this season.
Kim Min-jae has recently been attracting attention from various Premier League clubs. British media 90min reported that ‘Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Tottenham scouts visited Napoli’s home stadium to watch Kim Min-jae’.
