Kim Min-jae, who received military service benefits for his gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games, will only receive basic military training for three weeks.
He also missed the national team call-up, which coach Klinsmann lamented as an “irreplaceable” player, but advised that his duty to the nation is also important.

Kim Min-jae will be cut off from the outside world for a while, but there will be a Kim Min-jae battle out there.
[Klinsmann/Football Head Coach: Just like we’re speculating whether he’s going to stay at Napoli or move on, our coaching staff is having that kind of fun, and it’s interesting to see how his football life changes].
While a move to Premier League club Manchester United has been speculated, there have also been reports that this season’s Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have entered the race.토토사이트
With 33 league titles and six Champions League finals to their name, the Bavarians are one of the most prestigious clubs in the world and have been linked with a move for both of their central defensive pairings.

Kim Min-jae’s transfer market opens on the 1st of next month, and his decision on a new team is likely to speed up after the 6th of next month, when his basic military training ends.
