PSG end interest in Tottenham-linked centre-back Kim Min-jae
In what could be seen as a positive development for Tottenham Hotspur, it seems that PSG have decided to withdraw their interest in Kim Min-jae, the highly sought-after centre-back from Napoli, according to French outlet RMC Sport.
Kim Min-jae, known by the moniker ‘the monster’ due to his impressive strength and ability to win duels, has been a standout performer in Serie A. His exceptional contributions were instrumental in Napoli’s historic Scudetto triumph this season.
Unsurprisingly, the 26-year-old’s performances have turned heads across Europe, making him one of the hottest properties in the upcoming transfer window. He has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League.
Given his attributes, it’s no surprise that a host of English clubs have shown interest in securing the services of the South Korean defender. Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool and PSG have all been linked at different points.
However, RMC Sport’s latest update suggests that PSG have now reconsidered their pursuit of the centre-back, citing financial reasons. The French giants apparently deemed the player’s price tag to be too steep, leading them to withdraw from the race.
This development could potentially pave the way for Kim Min-jae’s move to the Premier League, with Tottenham in a prime position to secure his services. Spurs have long been searching for a commanding presence at the heart of their backline.
Kim’s physicality, coupled with his technical prowess, make him an excellent fit for the English top flight. With PSG out of the picture, Tottenham’s chances of landing the highly-regarded defender have significantly improved.
Managerial changes at Tottenham, with the arrival of a new head coach, only add to the anticipation surrounding the potential acquisition of Kim Min-jae. The club’s ambitions for the upcoming season could be bolstered by securing a player of his calibre, one who has already proven himself at the highest level.
