Man Utd are desperate to get a deal done for Napoli star Kim Min-jaeRex
Kim, 26, shone at the World Cup for his country.
And he has just won the Serie A but must return home for military service in June.
Nicknamed ‘The Monster’, he is one of Europe’s hottest properties after helping guide Napoli to their first title in 33 years.
United boss Erik Ten Hag is desperate for an elite striker this summer but also wants to bolster his defence.
They remain favourites to land long-term target Kim, who is believed to want a Prem move.
But he is also on PSG’s wishlist.
And his representatives have held talks with the French champs.
Napoli only signed Kim at the start of this season from Turkish side Fenerbache for £15m.
