Kim Min-jae, 30% increase in buyout and re-contract? ‘The 100 Billion Won Man’, not a dream, but a reality
100 billion won, an amount that will make your mouth open.
However, the value of Korean defender Kim Min-jae is getting closer and closer to this amount. He is in the process of being recognized as a top-class defender beyond A-class.
Min-jae Kim’s current team, Italy’s Serie A Napoli, fell on fire. This is because Kim Min-jae’s ransom price skyrocketed several times in just five months.
Kim Min-jae moved from Fenerbahce in Turkey to Naples last summer with a transfer fee of 18 million euros (approximately 24 billion won).
When coming to Italy, if another team pays the amount, a buyout clause has been inserted that allows Kim Min-jae to be taken without Napoli’s permission, but according to European media reports, the clause is for a summer transfer from July 1 to 15, 2023. It is temporarily activated at the beginning of the market, and 50 million euros (67.2 billion won) has been set for overseas clubs only.
At the time, it was considered high because it was more than 2.5 times the transfer fee, but as Napoli took the lead in Serie A and advanced to the round of 16 by ranking first in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, the value of Kim Min-jae soared in an instant.
Napoli’s idea is to offer Kim Min-jae a new contract and raise his salary significantly, while at the same time raising the buyout amount by 30% to 65 million euros (87.4 billion won).
However, since there is a limit to raising Kim Min-jae’s salary due to Naples’ financial situation, it seems that 30% of the buyout is the highest.
There are already many opinions among big clubs in Europe that the value of Kim Min-jae is expected to be around 100 billion won.
Aurelio De Laurentiis, chairman of Naples, said in the influential magazine La Gazzetta dello Sport last fall that Kim Min-jae was active from the beginning of Serie A, saying, “If the English club is aiming for him, his ransom will be up to 70 million euros (94.1 billion won). ) or up to 80 million euros (107.6 billion won).” 토토사이트
At the end of last year, ‘Tuto Mercatoweb’ also said that even if Napoli raises Kim Min-jae’s buyout to 75 million euros (100.8 billion won) and re-contracts, places like Manchester United will pay this amount.
A prediction made just a few months ago is now becoming a reality. Local media are showing great interest in Naples’ Kim Min-jae contract renewal and buyout upgrade, calling it ‘Project KIM’.
