After helping Napoli win their first Scudetto in over three decades, central defender Min-jae Kim is edging closer to an exit from the club after just one season.

Multiple outlets, including Foot Mercato, confirm the 26-year-old is just steps away from joining Bayern Munich after garnering interest from Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool.

The South Korean will sign a mega deal with the Bavarians worth almost €10 million (net) annually per season. As for the transfer fee, the Partenopei are expected to earn a €60 million fee–more than triple the €18 million they paid to Turkish giants Fenerbahçe last summer.
