Lee Kang-in, who has recently been linked with a move to PSG, has spoken out about the transfer speculation surrounding him, and French media outlets have taken an interest.
On June 16, Lee started and played the full 90 minutes of South Korea’s June A match against Peru at the Busan Asiad Stadium.
In the absence of South Korea’s captain, Son Heung-min, Lee excelled and led the team’s attack, but was unable to prevent South Korea from losing 0-1.
Lee’s performance was not the only reason for the game, but also for the recent transfer speculation surrounding him.
Lee has been in top form for Mallorca this season, attracting interest from a number of big clubs, and has been linked with a move to PSG rather than his original destination of Atletico Madrid.
PSG have been aggressively pursuing players since Kylian Mbappe’s potential departure, and Lee was one of their targets.
Reports in France and Spain ranged from a possible personal agreement between Lee and PSG to Lee passing a medical, and a move seemed imminent.
However, in a post-match interview in the mixed zone, Lee was cautious about the transfer speculation.
He said, “I don’t know. I don’t know what to say here. Maybe it will be decided in the future. There’s nothing I can say right now,” he said, adding that nothing has been decided.
“I’m in the national team now, so I’m just focused on the national team. I’m playing for Mallorca right now. If I were to transfer, I would have to wait until my national team commitments are over and then either transfer or stay,” he said cautiously.
French outlet L’Equipe reported Lee’s comments and said that “Lee has calmed everyone down.”
“After the match between South Korea and Peru, Lee was asked about his future and he told the truth. He calmed down the rumors of a move to Paris,” and characterized Lee’s comments as a clear statement from the player himself that nothing has been decided yet.메이저놀이터
Meanwhile, Lee’s departure is likely to be finalized at the end of the national team’s schedule, as he mentioned.
Leading French and Spanish media outlets have already reported that Lee is likely to sign a contract with PSG after the A-match.
With the French media picking up on Lee’s comments, it will be interesting to see how quickly his move to PSG moves forward after the A-Match.
