“Lee Kang-in instead of Lionel Messi: PSG plans upheaval with young talent”

The interest in Lee Kang-in is growing.

Global media outlet Eurosport highlighted Lee on Friday with the headline “Lionel Messi instead of Lee Kang-in: Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) plans upheaval with young talent”. Recently, multiple French and European media outlets have been speculating about Lee’s move to PSG.

“Lee Kang-in appears to be on the verge of a move to PSG. Superstars such as Messi and Sergio Ramos have left the club and Kylian Mbappe is back at the center of transfer speculation. Change is imminent at PSG and a new philosophy towards prospects will surely bring success.”

“Lee Kang-in is the start of it. According to Spain’s Marca and France’s L’Equipe, PSG are close to signing Mallorca-based South Korea international Lee Kang-In. PSG will have to pay around 22 million euros (about 306 billion won) for Lee,” he said.

This season, Lee has been ‘Mallorca itself’. He led Mallorca’s attack with his dazzling runs, darting dribbles, and sharp link-up play. The Spanish newspaper OK Diario called Lee “the greatest Mallorca player of the last decade” and said he was leaving.

His dribbling ability is among the best in all five major European leagues. According to soccer statistics site FútbolScore.com, Lee has made 90 successful dribbles this season. This ranks fourth in all five major European leagues, behind “world-class” Vinicius Junior (112), “GOAT” Lionel Messi (102), and “big French prospect” Jeremy Doucoue (96).

Dribbling is also something PSG is looking for from Lee. Not long ago, PSG chose to part ways with Messi, whose relationship with the club cooled after he traveled to Saudi Arabia without authorization. PSG president Luis Campos was looking for a player who could fulfill a similar role and performance to Messi.메이저놀이터

Negotiations moved quickly. Atletico Madrid, a potential destination, backed out several times due to financial difficulties in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic. Despite a relatively cheap buyout, Mallorca lured them with a cash-and-trade offer. However, the clubs were unable to agree on a deal, and Lee is widely expected to move to PSG.

Currently, Lee has been called up by Jürgen Klinsmann’s South Korean national soccer team and is preparing for the June A match. His next destination is expected to be announced after the A-Match.
