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.
And Brighton and Fulham have him on their wanted list too.

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.
