‘His transfer was planned’ – club’s head coach confirms £19 million player is leaving amid Tottenham interest


Fenerbahce manager Jorge Jesus was very disappointed with the departure of one of the team’s most important players, Kim Min-Jae.

According to Calciomercato, two Premier League clubs – Tottenham and Everton – are claiming the defender.

The South Korean player has a £19 million compensation clause in his contract, which gives the top clubs a chance to close the deal quickly. Jesus gave his opinion on the defender’s imminent departure:

His transfer was planned. But it was a surprise for me. I heard (about Kim’s exit) two days ago.

The coach says the potential club will pay a fee and the transfer will happen:

Unfortunately, our club can’t do anything about it. We can’t keep him. The club interested in him will pay the termination clause in the contract. It was a big blow to learn it.

We have other players of excellent level. But Kim has important qualities.
