It’s strange, it’s strange…Lee Kang-in’s transfer rumor is ‘cheap’
The transfer rumors of the club that wanted Lee Kang-in are suddenly quiet.
At the end of the season, Lee Kang-in was rumored to be transferring to several clubs. It was a natural procedure. It is because Lee Kang-in’s performance was absolute in the background that Mallorca, which was considered as a candidate for the relegation zone, was able to aim for grades above the mid-lower ranks 토토사이트.
Lee Kang-in scored 6 goals and 4 assists in Spanish La Liga this season, achieving double-digit attack points. Here, the decompression, which was previously evaluated as an advantage, has become more elegant, and the physical has improved noticeably. He has grown into a midfielder who is in the limelight with his chance-making and dribbling skills.
His attention naturally increased. He was only nominated for the League Player of the Month award twice, and was also nominated for La Liga Team Midfielder of the Year category. Lee Kang-in left Mallorca with a lot of transfer money, and Mallorca started to feel that sending Lee Kang-in was a mutual choice.
The transfer rumors were truly explosive. The most active was Atletico Madrid. At the end of April, reporter Matteo Moreto of Spain’s ‘Lelebo’ said, “Recently, negotiations between Atlético and Lee Kang-in took place in Madrid. Negotiations are not yet complete. Coach Diego Simeone has already approved the signing.”
However, Lee Kang-in’s trip to Atletico seems to be getting more and more difficult. This is because Atletico does not intend to invest a lot of money in Lee Kang-in. On the 13th (Korean time), Spain’s ‘Marca’ said, “When Atletico transfer rumors with Lee Kang-in came out, the club’s leadership argued several times that ‘we don’t want Lee Kang-in at that price’. Atletico recruited Lee Kang-in. There is no talk of paying around 20 million euros (about 28.9 billion won) to do it.”
Atletico evaluated that Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee was excessively high due to the involvement of Premier League (EPL) clubs. It was not an appropriate expenditure in the club’s view. It can be seen that the will to recruit players is low.
As soon as news came out that Atletico was hesitant to pay for the signing of Lee Kang-in, the Premier League (EPL) was re-ignited. Spain’s ‘Football España’ reported on the 14th, “Lee Kang-in is ready to transfer to the EPL as Atletico are reluctant to pay a buyout.”
If Lee Kang-in heads to the EPL, the leading destination is Aston Villa. Kang-in Lee was the type of player Villa coach Unai Emery wanted, and news came that Emery wanted Kang-in Lee. Villa was also interested in Lee Kang-in in the transfer market last winter.
