Teams that wanted Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) are withdrawing their recruiting plans.
Atletico Madrid, which showed the greatest interest in Lee Kang-in, raised Lee Kang-in’s ransom from 17 million euros (approximately 24.7 billion won) to 20 million euros (29.1 billion won), but withdrew from the market abruptly.
Aston Villa’s movements are also quiet. On the 18th, Ashley Freese, a reporter in charge of Aston Villa on ‘Birmingham Live’, responded to the question, ‘There are rumors that Villa withdrew from the Lee Kang-in match’, “It’s really quiet these days. There is no news from the Mallorca side at all. There are no clubs that raise the ransom anymore.”
At Wolverhampton, another club interested in Lee Kang-in, the situation worsened. British media ‘Express & Star’ said on the 17th, “The Wolverhampton club needs to sell some players this summer to comply with the Financial Fair Play regulations. Hwang Hee-chan, a player of the Korean national team, is one of them. Hwang Hee-chan’s ransom is 14 million pounds (approximately 23.3 billion won).”
If Wolverhampton has to sell Hwang Hee-chan due to financial difficulties, it is self-evident that they cannot afford to recruit Lee Kang-in. It is clear that the clubs that wanted Lee Kang-in are stepping back one step for various reasons
