Manchester United participated in the war to sign Lee Kang-in.
On the 21st (Korean time), Mateo Moreto of Spain’s ‘Lelevo’ said, “Many clubs, including Atletico Madrid, are interested in Lee Kang-in, but his future has not yet been decided. There are many admirers.”
“Man United inquired about the Mallorca player (Lee Kang-in). In the case of Man United, it will only proceed if a change to the owner is clearly made.”
Lastly, he said, “One of Lee Kang-in’s idols was Park Ji-sung, a Manchester United star. The fact that Lee Kang-in is leaving Mallorca this summer remains unchanged.”
Ahead of the opening of the transfer market, Lee Kang-in transfer rumors are hot. This is because Lee Kang-in had an amazing 2022-23 season. While playing as the core of Mallorca, he showed top-level skills in various indicators such as passing, releasing pressure, competition, and dribbling. In addition, while playing 33 La Liga games, he succeeded in achieving double digits in attack points with 6 goals and 4 assists.
Accordingly, a recruitment proposal for Lee Kang-in arrived from the January transfer market. Atletico, the three captains of La Liga, offered a transfer fee of 10 million euros (approximately 14.3 billion won). However, Mallorca adhered to the meaning that it had to be a buyout and rejected it.
One reason why the rumors of a transfer became more widespread was the visit to England by Lee Kang-in’s agent, Javier Garrido. Garrido visited the offices of Aston Villa, Manchester City and Wolverhampton in mid-April and also stopped by the Manchester United stadium.
As of now, going to the English Premier League (EPL) is strongly predicted. This is because Atlético was slightly out of the scouting match. Spain’s ‘Football España’ said in mid-May, “Atletico is not ready to pay Lee Kang-in’s buyout, which is estimated at 17 million euros (about 24.5 billion won). They want to pay less than 10 million euros. Lee Kang-in’s buyout The EPL, where there is no problem paying for , is a likely destination.”
The places that were connected in the EPL were Villa Garrido visited, Wolverhampton, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Burnley (promoted confirmed), etc. And this time, even Man United appeared.
Manchester United need reinforcements in the midfield. Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek are rumored to be transferring, and Fred’s contract will expire one year this summer. Marcel Sabitzer, who is on loan, is also uncertain about full recruitment. As we are going to the European competition next season, it is essential to secure the number of midfielders.스포츠토토
According to Moretto, so far, only inquiries have been made. Manchester United are in the process of selling the club, so it is not easy to enter the transfer market. It is expected that news towards Lee Kang-in will come out more clearly only when that part is sorted out.
