Manchester United failed to recruit Kim Min-jae’s ‘butterfly effect main culprit’ Maguire deprived of his captain position ‘redundant opposition’ and ‘disappointing…

Manchester United, which failed to recruit Kim Min-jae, deprived Harry Maguire of his captaincy.

Harry Maguire announced on social media on the 17th (Korea Standard Time) that he would step down as captain. “I spoke to the director and he informed me that he was replacing the captain. The director explained to me why. It’s really disappointing. But I will continue to give everything to wear the Manchester United uniform.”

Maguire then said, “So I sincerely thank Manchester United fans for their wonderful support while I was wearing the armband. It has been a huge privilege to lead Manchester United since the day I captained it three and a half years ago, and it has been one of the most proud moments of my career so far. “It’s one of the great honors in club football,” he said, looking back on the past.

Finally, Maguire said, “I did everything I could to help Manchester United succeed on and off the pitch. I always thank Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for putting me in charge for the first time, and I hope that anyone can succeed in the captaincy now. I will fully support them,” he added.

Manchester United has also publicly announced Maguire. Manchester United said, “After confirming that he was no longer a club captain, Maguire talked about how privileged the Manchester United captain was. He thanked all the fans for their support during his time as captain,” he said.

“Everyone in the club appreciates Maguire’s contribution as captain over the past three and a half years. Coach Tenhach explained, “We will announce a new captain at the right time after informing the players.”
England national team center back Maguire has been captain of Manchester United since the end of 2019. He left Leicester City in the summer of 2019 to join Manchester United, and after half a year he succeeded Ashley Young in the captain’s armband.

But Maguire’s performance didn’t last long. He began to falter sharply in the 2021-2022 season, and he made only 13 starts in all competitions last season. Maguire lost completely to Lysandro Martinez and Rafael Varane, and did not have an edge in competition with fullback Luke Shaw, as well as Victor Lindelof.

Maguire’s failure to captain properly turned out to be a butterfly effect in preparing for the new season. Maguire continued his captaincy without leaving the team, and Kim Min-jae was also recruited.

Corriere Delo Sport said, “Kim Min-jae agreed to a transfer with Manchester United shortly after winning the Serie A title in the 2022-2023 season. Kim Min-jae’s agent also informally delivered Kim Min-jae’s decision to go to Manchester United to Napoli. However, Manchester United reported that internal problems slowed the pace of recruiting Kim Min-jae, and Newcastle United, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich joined the recruitment competition.

Already in May, Kim Min-jae was considered to be a Manchester United player.

“Manchester United is leading the race to recruit Kim Min-jae,” said European transfer expert Nicola Skira. “Manchester United has proposed a five-year contract with an annual salary of 6 million euros (8.7 billion won).”

Skira already mentioned Manchester United, Manchester City (Man City), and Newcastle, saying, “Three Premier League teams are showing interest in Kim Min-jae.”

In addition, The Hardtackle reported, “Manchester United has set 8 million euros (12 billion won) for Kim Min-jae’s annual salary.” The amount so far is about four times higher than the estimated 2 million euros (2.9 billion won) that Kim Min-jae receives in Naples.

Il Martino also said, “Manchester United is set to recruit Kim Min-jae. With only the final details left, Kim Min-jae decided to join Manchester United, he said. On top of that, with a specific amount coming out, Kim Min-jae’s popularity seems to be determined.

Kim Min-jae moved to Naples ahead of the 2022-2023 season. He played a key role in Napoli’s defense from the beginning of his joining. In 33 league games, he built Europe’s best defense and helped Napoli win the league title for the first time in 33 years since the 1989-1990 season.

European big clubs showed interest in Kim Min-jae’s performance. In particular, if you pay a buyout estimated at 43 million pounds (72 billion won) to 52 million pounds (87 billion won) for two weeks from July 1, you can recruit Kim Min-jae without Napoli’s consent. Therefore, interest in Manchester United and Manchester City has grown.

The Sun explained, “Coach Eric Tenhach is happy to add Kim Min-jae to the defensive option.”

As such, local media in Europe, including Britain and Italy, reported that Manchester United is recruiting Kim Min-jae. However, Maguire did not properly decide on his move, and Kim Min-jae’s recruitment was over. Currently, Kim Min-jae is likely to join Bayern Munich.

European soccer transfer expert Fabrizio Romano said on the 18th, “There is no problem with Kim Min-jae’s transfer to Bayern Munich despite recent rumors.”

Kim Min-jae is likely to leave Napoli this summer and move to Bayern Munich. Because there is a buyout clause.

However, the buyout clause can only be invoked between July 1 and 15, and Bayern Munich has yet to announce the recruitment of Kim Min-jae.

In response, some say that Kim Min-jae may remain in Naples. But this is not true. Kim Min-jae’s transfer to Bayern Munich is taking place.

Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel has already made remarks suggesting the recruitment of “monster defender” Kim Min-jae.

Coach Tuchel said in an official press conference ahead of the pre-season on the 16th, “I won’t publicly say my name because of the negotiations, but it’s not a big secret who’s coming.”

Earlier, Bayern Munich selected Kim Min-jae as a substitute after transferring defender Luca Hernandez to PSG.

Kim Min-jae, who led Napoli to the top of the league for the first time in 33 years by playing a big role in Serie A in Italy last season, is known to be likely to transfer to Bayern Munich.
