Paris Saint-Germain are no longer interested in signing Manchester United transfer target and Napoli defender Kim Min-jae, according to RMC Sport via GOAL.

The report adds that Paris Saint-Germain have pulled out of the race for the South Korean international because he is deemed as too expensive.

Reports elsewhere claim Napoli want north of £50m for their star defender, who lifted guided the club to the Serie A title this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United now stand a better chance of signing Kim Min-jae and Victor Osimhen from Napoli with Luciano Spalletti set to step down as Napoli manager, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, transfer insider Jones said: “This has been a really interesting twist in the tale. It definitely raises new doubts about the whole security of that team, who could potentially be unsettled by it and consider a move probably more than they would have if the foundations were going to stay in place.

“The likes of Kim or Osimhen I’d say were the two most likely to be touted with a transfer on the back of Luciano Spalletti potentially moving and I’d say it becomes more doable if that’s the case.”
