Kim Min-jae spotted at Bayern Munich training center. The official announcement is imminent.
Germany’s ‘Bild’ reported on the 18th (KST), “The new signing of Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel. He is already in Munich. We captured the first photo of him after his secret arrival.”
In the photo, Kim Min-jae is walking on the training ground in Munich in a suit. Kim quietly left the country through Incheon Airport on July 17 without being seen by reporters and fans. He is believed to have visited the Munich training ground today to finalize the deal.
Kim emerged as one of the best defenders in the 카지노사이트 world last season as he led Napoli to the Serie A title. He was also named Serie A Defender of the Year for his performances. A number of teams were interested in the player, but ‘Germany’s strongest’ Bayern came closest to signing him by paying his buyout clause.
Tuchel also indirectly confirmed the signing of Kim Min-jae. According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Tuchel was asked about the recent departure of defender Luca Hernandez to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and said, “We want a player to fill Hernandez’s place, and it’s no secret who we’re talking about.” Tuchel also hinted at a possible move for Kim Min-jae.
Kim’s move to Bayern has long been considered a foregone conclusion. However, the Bavarians sent a medical team to South Korea to conduct a medical test on Kim, which was delayed by the fact that Kim had to undergo basic military training from June 15 to July 6. It is understood that Kim completed his medical in Seoul on July 8 without any abnormalities.
The countdown to the official announcement is on as Kim Min-jae shows up at the training ground. Kim will join the Bavarians for preseason training and then travel with them on their tour of Japan, which begins next week. Bayern will play Manchester City and Kawasaki Frontale in Japan before facing Liverpool in Singapore. The season opens with the DFL Super Cup on August 13.
