Bayern Munich have no intention to let their defender Kim Min-jae leave on loan amidst Inter Milan’s interest.

The Italian champions have reportedly identified the South Korean as their primary transfer target to enhance their backline.

As reported this morning, Inter can only afford to sign the 27-year-old on an initial loan deal.

However, Sport Mediaset (via FcInterNews) claims that the Bavarian giants have firmly rebuffed this notion.

The Bundesliga side bought Kim last summer following his exploits during his solitary campaign at Napoli which culminated in a historic Scudetto triumph.

Bayern thus splashed 58 million euros to secure the services of the South Korea international, basically triggering his release clause.

So as the source explains, the Germans would only sell the centre-back this summer for a considerable figure that allows them to recuperate part of the sum invested to sign the player.

Kim started his time at the Allianz Stadium stadium as a regular starter. However, he then lost his starting berth in favor of Eric Dier.

Moreover, the source confirms that the Nerazzurri have pinpointed Udinese’s Jaka Bijol as a possible replacement for Stefan de Vrij who might leave this summer.

The Slovenia international would cost Inter a transfer fee between 15 and 20 million euros.

However, the report believes that the Italian champions could face some stern competition on this front. SM claims that both Fiorentina and Bologna have inquired about the defender’s services.

Bijol has been plying his trade in Udine since making the move from CSKA Moscow in 2022. His contract with the Zebrette is valid until June 2027.
