B. Munich Gathers Insanely Fast Defenders, Kim Min-jae to Join ‘PL Speed King’..
It’s truly an astonishing acquisition. The prestigious German club, Bayern Munich, is on the verge of signing another defender.
On the 15th (Korean time), global sports media outlet ‘The Athletic’ reported that Manchester City’s right-sided defender, Kyle Walker, has reached a verbal agreement with Bayern Munich for a transfer. The negotiation has not been finalized yet, and the transfer fee has not been agreed upon. However, the negotiations are progressing closer. Manchester City is reportedly expecting a transfer fee of over 15 million euros (approximately 21.3 billion Korean won) for Walker.
Bayern Munich is undergoing a significant defensive overhaul ahead of the new season. They have already signed Kim Min-jae (26), who emerged as one of the top defenders in the Italian Serie A known for his strong defense. The personal agreement and medical tests have been completed. Now, there is only one step left. Once Bayern Munich pays Napoli the buyout clause of 50 million euros (approximately 71.2 billion Korean won) for Kim Min-jae, the transfer will be finalized.
There was also a need for a right full-back in this situation. The transfer of French national team’s right-back, Benjamin Pavard, was anticipated. That’s why Bayern Munich chose ‘speed racer’ Kyle Walker as the player. Walker, who played 254 games for Manchester City over 6 seasons, was one of the best attacking full-backs in the English Premier League (EPL). He was a key figure in Manchester City’s achievement of the ‘treble’ (winning the league, FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League in a single season) last season.
If Walker’s transfer is completed, Bayern Munich’s defense will have gathered all the swift defenders. When it comes to top speed, it is undoubtedly Walker who stands out. He was crowned the ‘Speed King’ in the EPL last season. According to football statistical company ‘Opta,’ Walker had a speed duel with midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré in the Everton match on May 14 and recorded the fastest speed among Premier League players this season, reaching 37.3 km/h.
Bayern Munich also has a player who boasts a speed comparable to Walker. The protagonist is right full-back Alphonso Davies, who recorded a speed of 37.10 km/h, the highest in the Bundesliga.
In particular, the center-backs responsible for Bayern Munich’s defense in the new combination also possess impressive speed. Kim Min-jae recorded a speed of 32.10 km/h, and Matthias Ginter achieved a top speed of 33.23 km/h. Portuguese-born coach Vitor Pereira, who scouted Kim Min-jae as “an abnormally fast center-back” for the Turkish national team, spared no praise. 온라인카지노
