Lee Kang-in has raised his stock.
Spain’s Marca said on the 9th (KST), “Lee Kang-in is one of the most valuable players in Mallorca. He has exploded onto the Spanish La Liga scene this season, scoring six goals and providing six assists, and it will take a lot of money to sign him,” the report said.
“After costing just €17 million last summer, Lee’s price tag has soared to €25 million after a fantastic season. He could be the most significant departure in Mallorca’s history and is currently being linked with Atletico Madrid.”메이저사이트
Lee has become ‘Mallorca itself’. He led the attack with his blistering interceptions, darting dribbles and sharp link-up play. The Spanish newspaper OK Diario wrote in a tribute to Lee’s departure, “Mallorca’s greatest player of the last decade is leaving.
His dribbling, in particular, is among the best in all of Europe’s top five leagues. According to football statistics website Fúscore.com, Lee (90 attempts) ranks fourth in all five European leagues, behind Vinicius Junior (112 attempts), Lionel Messi (102 attempts) and Jeremy Dockoo (96 attempts).
After the end of the season, the offers started pouring in. Diego Simeone’s Atletico and English Premier League (EPL) Aston Villa were among the clubs mentioned.
Both options are attractive. Villa has the presence of Unai Emery, who is familiar with Spain. Atletico are tempting with a ticket to the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
Marca claims that Lee is worth more than £100m from last season, making him the star of the upcoming summer transfer window. The financial situation is in Villa’s favour. Atletico are pushing for Lee with a combination of cash and trade cards.
‘El Gol Digital’ says: “Mallorca have no intention of letting him go easily. If he leaves, there is only Amos N’Diaye to play in the same position. Atletico are hoping to reduce the price of Lee by selling Rodrigo Riquelme.” Lee has been back in South Korea since the end of the season and will make his next career move soon.
