Napoli will be on the prowl for a proper Kim Min-Jae heir in the summer and will kick the tires about the Korean defender himself, who has lost the starting job at Bayern Munich. His return is unlikely but not impossible, Il Mattino reports (via Goal).

The main complication is that the center-back received a significant pay raise moving to Bavaria. He makes €8.5M per season. The Partenopei will go back to a stricter wage policy after Victor Osimhen’s departure. He’s the only one on their squad who earns that much.

Napoli will test the waters with Bayern Munich to bring Kim back on loan, with the counterparty possibly contributing to his wages at first. Despite the difficulties, they could make an exception for a player they are familiar with and who thrived with them.

On the other hand, more teams will chase the 27-year-old if he asked out, especially Juventus in the event they lost Gleison Bremer. He has been left on the bench in six of the last seven matches.

The Azzurri are also working on more feasible targets, such as Galatasaray’s Davinson Sanches and Feyenoord’s David Hancko.

Our Take on Napoli and Kim

It’d be quite a coup, and he’d quickly be forgiven for his departure after what has happened this season. It’s entirely possible that he and his entourage will get antsy if his current situation doesn’t improve, but the suitors will flock if there’s a chance to grab him at a reasonable price, giving Bayern more preferable ways out.
