‘Heung-min & Kangin combination?’ Western media, “Tottenham also wants Lee Kang-in…competition with AT Madrid”￼
Will there be a scene where Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) plays with Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham)?
Spanish media ‘Mundo Deportivo’ said on the 28th (Korean time), “England Premier League (EPL) teams want to recruit Lee Kang-in. In particular, Tottenham is very interested in signing Lee Kang-in. We will compete with Atletico Madrid for Lee Kang-in.”
Lee Kang-in is receiving love calls from big European clubs planning to reinforce players for the 2023-24 season. The representative team is Atletico Madrid. On the 27th, the media reported, “In the recent La Liga match between Atletico Madrid and Mallorca, the two teams discussed the possibility of Lee Kang-in’s transfer.” 안전놀이터
“Diego Simeone, coach of Atletico Madrid, wants to recruit Lee Kang-in. “Atletico Madrid has confirmed again that Lee Kang-in’s buyout is 20 million euros (about 30 billion won),” he explained.
It is said that the club’s high-ranking officials are already convinced of Lee Kang-in’s ability, and coach Simeone’s order to recruit him has fallen. Atletico Madrid is a team that has shown interest in signing Lee Kang-in since last winter. However, Mallorca ignored all Lee Kang-in transfer offers last winter. Dissatisfied with this, Lee Kang-in unfollowed Mallorca social media (SNS).
Lee Kang-in’s recent performance draws attention. Lee Kang-in was substituted in the second half of the Atletico Madrid away match. Immediately after being put in, he showed a dribble break through 4 defenders, and at the end of the second half, there was a scene where he ran while playing with the defenders on the left flank.
Mallorca coach Javier Aguirre said, “Lee Kang-in had minor injuries and could not play full-time for 90 minutes. He considered taking a break. He decided that starting three consecutive games was unreasonable,” he explained, explaining that it was a substitute appearance that was considerate of Lee Kang-in.
In the previous game, he scored twice against Getafe. He scored an equalizer at the beginning of the second half when the score was 0-1, and scored a key goal in extra time in the second half when the team was leading 2-1. Lee Kang-in’s key goal was selected as the Bets’ Goal of the Week by the La Liga Secretariat.
