European clubs that lined up for Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors) are withdrawing. It is known that Celtic, a prestigious Scottish club, will not make an additional offer.
‘The Celtic Voice’, which delivers the news of Celtic, said on the 17th (Korean time), “The 3 million euro (approximately 4 billion won) recruitment plan for Cho Kyu-sung seems to be canceled.”
Cho Kyu-sung was the K-League 1 top scorer last year and became a star through the 2022 Qatar World Cup, drawing attention from Europe. Various transfer rumors poured in, including Celtic, Germany’s Mainz, and America’s Minnesota United. 메이저사이트
Cho Kyu-sung’s ransom price went up as well. Celtic also raised the transfer fee as much as possible. Just last week, according to European transfer market expert Fabricio Romano, Celtic’s offer was 3 million euros. Mainz also met this amount.
As a result, Jeonbuk could not be persuaded. Mainz said, “We want Cho Kyu-sung, but we have financial problems,” said Christian Heidel, general manager of Mainz, as if he could not raise the transfer fee more. The German press ‘Kicker’ also said, “Mainz has stepped out.”
Same with Celtic. The Celtic Voice said, “Cho Kyu-seong is expected to remain in Jeonbuk. We have decided to postpone the transfer to the summer.” “Of course, the possibility of a transfer is not completely ruled out. I don’t think Celtic will turn their attention to another player now.”
The media expressed regret, “Cho Kyu-seong could be a perfect substitute as Giorgos Giacumakis was known to be leaving. He is a good goalscorer and has good physical abilities.” However, the transfer to Celtic will not happen.
On the 16th, Cho Kyu-sung accompanied Jeonbuk to Spain’s winter battery training.
