The ‘battle for Lee Kang-in’ is heating up. The British and Spanish media were confident that their respective clubs would embrace Lee Kang-in.
Lee Kang-in transfer competition is intensifying. This time it’s Atletico Madrid. On the 28th (Korean time), reporter Matteo Moreto of Spain’s ‘Lelevo’ reported, “Atletico Madrid is trying to recruit Lee Kang-in.”
It is interpreted that the last confrontation amplified the transfer rumor. In the match against Atletico Madrid on the 27th, Lee Kang-in came as a substitute in the 11th minute of the second half and led the team’s attack by running all over the field for about 40 minutes.
The highlight came in the 30th minute of the second half. Lee Kang-in, who caught the ball near the left half space, drove the ball into the penalty box with a reckless dribble and shot a corner kick. There were 4 opposing defenders around Lee Kang-in, but none of them could easily steal the ball from Lee Kang-in.
It was an activity that poured fuel on Lee Kang-in transfer rumors. Previously, it was known that he was close to transferring to the English Premier League (EPL). Newcastle United, Wolverhampton, Burnley, Brighton and Hove Albion, etc. were keeping an eye on Lee Kang-in.
In particular, Villa’s interest was great. Manager Unai Emery was known to be a big fan of Lee Kang-in, and Villa was also willing to pay Lee Kang-in’s buyout of 18 million euros (approximately 26.5 billion won).
However, due to Atletico Madrid’s participation in the match, the destination fell into obscurity. The attractive point of Atletico Madrid is that Lee Kang-in does not have to adapt to the league and that it is one of the best clubs in Spain along with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
In the local media, the ‘battle for Lee Kang-in’ began. The UK’s ‘Sports Witness’ said on the 28th, “Villa is in the best position to secure Lee Kang-in’s transfer. They are one of the ‘most persistent’ clubs in the Lee Kang-in recruitment battle,” and put weight on Lee Kang-in’s transfer to England.
It was different from what Spain’s ‘Lelebo’ thought. ‘Lelebo’ said, “Director Diego Simeone sent an ‘OK’ sign about Lee Kang-in’s recruitment. Lee Kang-in is very close to Atletico Madrid,” predicting that Lee will head to Atletico Madrid.메이저사이트
Currently, it is realistic that Atletico Madrid is closer. According to ‘Lelebo’, the EPL had previously been ahead of Lee Kang-in’s recruitment, but Atlético Madrid charged in a very determined way and caused a stir in the market.
Also, the fact that Atletico Madrid will have a pre-season in Korea next summer is a factor that increases the possibility of Lee Kang-in heading to Atletico Madrid.
Lee Kang-in’s transfer is expected to become a hot topic until the coming summer. The British and Spanish media are also scrambling to report that Lee Kang-in will come to their country. It is a proof that Lee Kang-in’s performance and star quality are soaring day by day.
