Newcastle United is also known to be interested in Lee Kang-in.
It was on the 7th (Korean time) that Lee Kang-in’s transfer came out. Spain’Relevo’ said, “Lee Kang-in will leave Mallorca with a 90% probability. I can’t say for sure yet, but I can say two destination leagues with more options. Premier League (EPL) or Dutch Eredivisie. Which Negotiations with the team haven’t gone too deep, but he’s a very hot player these days.”
Reporter Matteo Moreto, who reported the article, said, “One of the EPL clubs interested in Lee Kang-in is Aston Villa.” The list of other clubs other than Villa was also known. Spain’s ‘Marca’ reported on the 8th, “The EPL and the Eredivisie are interested in Lee Kang-in. The clubs interested in Lee Kang-in are Newcastle, Villa, Burnley and Feyenoord.”
Newcastle has been reported as a club that has been interested in signing Lee Kang-in in the past. At the time, it was a transfer rumor that was comparable to rumors, but now the situation has changed. ‘Marca’ explained, “EPL scouts visited Lee Kang-in in person to see him in the match between Mallorca and Atletico Madrid in November.” Feyenoord is also a club that has appreciated Lee Kang-in’s talent from the past.
However, it is understood that negotiations are not yet in a concrete state. ‘Marka’ said, “Mallorca has not yet received a single offer for Lee Kang-in. There has been no open negotiations yet. Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee is 17 million euros (approximately 22.8 billion won). Newcastle, which has Arab capital, can afford it. It’s the same with Villa. Money is not an issue.” 메이저사이트
Mallorca is also admitting that it will not be able to hold Lee Kang-in for a long time. This is because of the 17 million euro buyout clause. If other clubs pay a buyout, Lee Kang-in’s transfer cannot be prevented, but Mallorca wants to keep Lee Kang-in until this winter. In Mallorca, which is currently cruising in 10th place in the league, if key Lee Kang-in is left out, the team could be greatly shaken. There is no player in Mallorca who can replace Lee Kang-in.
