There are a total of 3 teams that want Lee Kang-in.
Spain’s ‘Marca’ reported on the 25th (Korean time), “Lee Kang-in is not happy in Mallorca. He does not understand the position of the club that does not listen to the proposal for him in January.”
The reason why Kang-in Lee expressed his dissatisfaction is clear. This is because Mallorca does not allow transfers despite offers from various clubs. The media also explained, “Despite the fact that Mallorca is receiving important offers, it is clear that they will not accept any offers.” Currently, Lee Kang-in is known to have stopped following Mallorca’s SNS account.
Lee Kang-in’s transfer rumors broke out in early January. On the 7th, Spain’s ‘Relevo’ said, “90% of Lee Kang-in will leave Mallorca. Where will he go? I can’t say for sure yet, but I can say two leagues. English Premier League (EPL) or Eredivisie. Currently, Negotiations have not progressed with any team, but he is very hot.”
No specific club was mentioned at the time. However, after Lee Kang-in’s complaints broke out, the specific team name was revealed. Reporter Matteo Moreto, who is fluent in Spanish news, said on his personal SNS, “Lee Kang-in requested a transfer. Mallorca did not want to hear the offer in January, and will allow it in the summer. There are offers,” he said. 안전놀이터
The Spanish club is known to be Atletico Madrid. Mallorca local magazine ‘Ultima Hora’ said, “The club that shows the greatest interest is Atletico. Lee Kang-in’s agent listens to the proposal and wants to sit in the transfer seat.”
Here, even Aston Villa is being mentioned. On the 26th, ‘Birmingham Live’, a local magazine in Birmingham, England, explained, “Villa is interested in Kang-in Lee and faces competition with Brighton. Villa inquired about Kang-in Lee this month, but they said they would not sell Mallorca.”
Despite the interest of the three teams, Mallorca is in a position not to sell. Lee Kang-in, along with Bedat Muriki, has grown into a player responsible for the team’s offense. He soon became an indispensable player, scoring two goals and assisting four times. His sharp kicking power and game influence are considerable. Because of this performance, Mallorca is not willing to give up easily.
There is only one way for Lee Kang-in to leave the team. A team that pays Lee Kang-in’s buyout will appear. Lee Kang-in has a buyout of 17 million euros (approximately 22.8 billion won). Attention is focusing on whether Lee Kang-in will be able to leave Mallorca through the remaining transfer window period.
