MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly plotting a swoop for South Korean star Kim Min-jae.
The 26-year-old only moved to Napoli from Fenerbahce last summer but has already got a huge list of admirers.
And now United have allegedly joined the chase to sign the centre-back, who is currently in Qatar on World Cup duty.
However, they face a fight with at least three other Premier League clubs to snap-up the 26-year-old ace.
Min-jae has played 20 times for the runaway Serie A leaders this term – with his team only conceding 12 goals in 15 top-flight matches.
He is under contract until 2025 with an option for an additional two years on his deal.

That has not stopped Calcio Mercato from claiming that a host of clubs are already considering a move for him.
United are the latest to be linked with a transfer swoop.
However, Tottenham have also held a long-term interest in Min-jae.

This report states that Napoli have no interest in selling him once the transfer window opens in January but he could be available come the summer.
Min-jae started his career back in his homeland with Gyeongju KHNP and then Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.
A switch to Beijing Guoan in the Chinese Super League followed before Napoli came knocking after two years.
