Mallorca general manager Pablo Ortels also announced Lee’s buyout at 30 million euros (approximately 40 billion won).
On the 3rd (Korean time), Mallorca general manager Ortels said at a press conference, “The important thing is that Lee Kang-in continues to be with us. He is happy in Mallorca, and we are in no hurry.”
He continued, “All proposals towards Lee Kang-in will be reviewed, but that does not mean that they are accepted.
Earlier, during the transfer window in January, coach Aguirre said, “Lee Kang-in is with us and will continue to be. Did I have to persuade him? no,” he said.
Director Ortels confirmed that coach Aguirre’s statement of ‘buyout of 30 million euros’ was true. 메이저놀이터
At that time, there was a big controversy over Lee Kang-in’s buyout. After Aguirre’s press conference ended, Juanmi Sanchez, a reporter in charge of Mallorca belonging to Spain’s Marca, refuted, “You can buy one and a half Lee Kang-ins with 30 million euros. It’s not 30 million euros. It’s much less.” . Reporter Sanchez is a well-known figure for being up-to-date on Mallorca news.
As such, there is a tense confrontation over whether or not this is true. Most of the time, the club’s position is true, but there was a lot of distrust because Lee Kang-in’s buyout of 30 million euros was an absurd amount.
Anyway, Lee Kang-in’s transfer in January was canceled. Previously, Lee Kang-in was linked with transfer rumors to Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Brighton, Burnley and Feyenoord. And at the end of the transfer market, Atletico Madrid and a team from the English Premier League (EPL) Big 6 were also mentioned.
Reporter Sanchez said, “Atlético is the La Liga team that has shown interest in Lee Kang-in. What I would like to add is that Mallorca has already received an official request from Atletico. ‘We want to recruit Lee Kang-in in January.’ I want to sit at the negotiating table right away in winter, but Mallorca will not respond until summer.,Lee Kang-in (I don’t know what will happen in summer) is open to the offer that came in now, and conveyed his desire to negotiate with Ortels.,And A Premier League team is a top team, not Brighton.” According to later additions, the top team was the Big 6.
Lee Kang-in now has to cover his regrets and digest the rest of his schedule. If good performances continue, another opportunity will arise this summer.
