The team that wanted ‘Golden Boy’ Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) was Aston Villa, not West Ham.
On the 19th (Korean time), Spain’s ‘Todo Pichajes’ corrected reports related to Lee Kang-in’s transfer. Previously, the media quoted ‘Cadena Ser”s radio broadcast ‘Ser Deportivos’ and said, “West Ham is trying to recruit Lee Kang-in by paying 18 million euros (approximately 26.2 billion won) in a buyout this summer.” 먹튀검증
This was a misrepresentation. The media corrected, “Correction. The Premier League team trying to recruit Lee Kang-in is not West Ham, but Aston Villa, led by manager Unai Emery. We misrepresented it.”
The truth battle surrounding the buyout amount is also coming to an end. Reporter Juan Carlos Taura of Spain’s ‘Cope Mallorca’ confirmed, “Lee Kang-in’s buyout is 18 million euros. It is neither 30 million euros (approximately 43.7 billion won) nor 25 million euros (approximately 36.4 billion won).”
“With 30 million euros, you can buy one and a half Lee Kang-ins. (The buyout amount) is not 30 million euros,” is consistent with reporter Juanmi Sanchez of ‘Marca’. Mallorca coach Javier Aguirre’s claim of 30 million euros is losing power.
At this rate, Lee Kang-in is highly likely to leave Mallorca in the next transfer window. He had already received an offer from Atlético Madrid last winter, but Mallorca rejected it and stayed with the team. Then, Lee Kang-in expressed dissatisfaction by unfollowing the club’s social media, and the dominant observation is that it will be difficult to hold him for a long time in Spain.
