Tottenham Hotspur didn’t know.
Britain’s ‘Boot Room’ said on the 9th (Korean time), “According to Graham Bailey, Son Heung-min has recommended Kim Min-jae to the club for quite some time. Kim Min-jae has established himself as one of the best defenders in Europe over the past 12 months, and Son Heung-min has been recruiting him for a long time. I was told to do it.”메이저사이트
According to the media, transfer market expert Bailey said, “Napoli had to put in a buyout at the time they signed Kim Min-jae. I’ve heard about him since he was in China. Because Son Heung-min wanted him. Kim Min-jae is a true defender and a fantastic player.” mentioned
Kim Min-jae, who grew up in Jeonbuk Hyundai, went through Guoan in Beijing, and stood out in Fenerbahce, fully blossomed in Naples. After being recruited as a substitute for Kalidou Koulibaly last summer, he improved as he played each game. Kim Min-jae made a big success by conquering the Italian Serie A and UEFA Champions League (UCL) stages under the moderation of coach Luciano Spalletti.
It was argued that such Kim Min-jae could have joined Tottenham, not Napoli. There was a recommendation by Son Heung-min, a national team senior. Jose Mourinho, who directed Tottenham in the past, also mentioned Kim Min-jae. He said, “I also exchanged video calls with Kim Min-jae several times during Tottenham. I wanted to recruit Kim Min-jae, but Tottenham did not help.”
He did not hide his bitterness, saying, “At the time, Fenerbahce wanted 8.6 million pounds (about 14 billion won) for Kim Min-jae’s transfer fee, but it was impossible at the time. Look at Kim Min-jae now. He is the best player.” As Mourinho said, Kim Min-jae has become the hottest center back in Europe.
Tottenham community ‘To the Rainback’ also highlighted Kim Min-jae, saying, “The process of Tottenham chasing Kim Min-jae was disappointing. He would be a great option, but Tottenham haven’t shown the ambitions of other clubs. It is no surprise that we missed Kim Min-jae,” he said, swallowing regret.
Meanwhile, the recruitment war surrounding Kim Min-jae is currently unfolding in a three-way battle. Up on the back, Newcastle United are watching the situation to embrace the iron pillar.
