Will Kim Min-jae (26, Naples) and Lee Kang-in (21, Mallorca) have a meal at Old Trafford? Following Kim Min-jae, Lee Kang-in was also connected to Manchester United.
Spanish media ‘Lelebo’ reported on the 21st (Korean time), “Many teams are showing interest in signing Lee Kang-in. The Premier League is also watching Lee Kang-in, and Manchester United has inquired about signing him from Mallorca.”
Lee Kang-in went beyond Mallorca’s core this season and has grown into a player that the Primera Liga is paying attention to. After making up for his shortcomings one by one, he gained more confidence after participating in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. In the second half, he showed off his presence as a ‘Golden Boy’ by recording double-digit attack points in the first Korean Primera Liga multi-goal.
His left foot, sharpened by his vigorous activity, was also a concern in the Premier League. At one time, England recommended that “Manchester United should recruit Lee Kang-in as a long-term replacement for Christian Eriksen.”
He has been strongly linked with Atlético Madrid since the winter, but there are differences in negotiations between the clubs. Atletico Madrid is trying to recruit Lee Kang-in at an amount lower than the 18 million euros (approximately 26 billion won) of the buyout. Manchester United are showing interest in a situation where Atletico Madrid is slowing down.
Teammate Kim Min-jae was also rumored to be transferring to Manchester United. In the UK, the position is “We have to wait and see”, but in Italy, “We are negotiating in detail with Manchester United. The contract has been concluded and we are looking for a house for Kim Min-jae to live in.”안전놀이터
Manchester United are planning a major team overhaul this summer. They sent Phil Jones and Axel Tuangzeb, who had become surplus resources, and even Harry Maguire is thinking about releasing them.
Kim Min-jae recently showed attachment to the number 3 on his back, saying, “I wore number 3 in Napoli and won the championship in 33 years” through the official channel of the Korea Football Association. Eric Bailly is currently assigned number 3, but he is likely to leave the team this summer. The back number 13, which Park Ji-sung wore in the past, has no owner.
