for 45m it will be a steal. Is good at everything you want from a modern CB and is finally getting top league experience. Would be the perfect CB to replace Varane in 2024, assuming he maintains his form from Fenerbahce and the early Napoli games so far.

Vitor Pereira might not be a top european club manager level, but he surely knows how to scout for good players. He demanded this fella while on Fenerbahce. He would be a much better Director of Football than manager IMO. He's actually good spoting players who are outside the market spark.

He’s been good so far but he hasn’t been tested too much yet. He’s a solid unit and Napoli haven’t missed Koulibaly yet

Jose wanted him at Spurs around 2 years ago.


I hear he's a very complete CB. Very strong and fast at the same time.

Monza and Hellas Verona weren't much to gauge on, but Fiorentina should be a decent test.

<Checks Username> Nope. Not luckyscout.

Kim Min Jae is good and everything, but we should sign Patrick Schick
Schick just signed an extension with Bayer Leverkusen til 2027. No release clause - won't come cheap anytime soon.

The entire Napoli team was good. They bypassed the press very easily. Very hard to single one out.

Will he be doing his year of military service at some point?
Looks like he was part of the squad that won gold at the 2018 Asian Games, so I think he'd be exempt based on that.

Exempted if I recall correctly. I think he was in the same squad as Son which won the gold medal in the 2018 Asian Games.

I do think we should sign another CB preferably on the cheap. It's not crucial but given the impact of Varane and Martinez and the formers fitness issues we don't want to rely on Maguire and Lindelof.

Is far from his best form, but still rock solid. I think he needs some time to settle with the other DFs to build chemistry, but his individual quality already made Koulibaly forgotten.
Shouldn't ignore that it's his first season in a top league and just had his CL debut. For that he has been really decent, but he can do much more.
At his very best, he is a fecking beast. He even has some moments of Vidic. He is exempted from military duties, so don't worry about that. He's also a very "coachable" player, dilligent, loyal, good character.

What a signing from Napoli. He has been very good for them so far.

He is a very solid defender, his physical attributes have him in good stead so far. However not been overly impressed with his passing yet. Looks quite loose at times

A top-class center-back with great determination in himself. He has great physical attributes too, which affects his game in a good way.

If we didn't go for Martinez, I'd wish we would have gone for him. Going to be an awesome player.

Martinez is better than this guy a lot in terms of distribution from the back, which is necessary for ETH's tactics.
Martinez is one of the best distributed from the back, permanent. Him and Blind are very very good.

Kim Min seems like a great ball carrier though, which Timber is as well. Their passing is decent at least normally too.

Kim doesn't have bad techniques or passing skills but yeah you're correct Martinez is one of the best in this criteria.

Seems like we missed out. Could surely have moved Maguire out for more than the 18M Napoli paid, or maybe Lindelof for like 12M and gotten a quality backup in.

Yes but imagine the uproar if United signed a player from the Turkish league.

Trust me we gotta get him. Can become the next no-nonsense CB like Vidic. Has a relatively fair release clause for 2024.
