Reports of a move for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG)’s Lee Kang-in continue.
Recently, it was reported that Spanish Primera Liga (La Liga) side Atletico Madrid (ATM) wanted to loan Lee on loan. According to reports, ATM head coach Diego Simeone still wants Lee and plans to loan him out in January as he faces stiff competition for a starting spot at PSG.
ATM have consistently wanted Lee in the transfer market and have been short of wingers lately, so the arrival of Lee would guarantee him a starting spot.
This is a transfer rumor that includes the prospect of Lee struggling to compete for a starting spot at PSG. With ace Kylian Mbappe still in the fold, PSG added Marco Asensio, Ousmane Dembele, Bradley Barca, Kylian Mbappe, and Gonzalo Higuain to their attacking options in the summer transfer window.
Lee will need to compete for a spot on the wing, which has led to speculation in the local media that he may play in the midfield instead of as an attacking option.
Following ATM, it was reported that another team in La Liga wanted to sign Lee on loan. This is Lee’s former club Mallorca.
Last season, Lee was Mallorca’s ace. He scored six goals and provided six assists as Mallorca, a relegation candidate, finished a solid 9th in the league. Mallorca dubbed him the ‘King of Mallorca’.
But when Lee left, Mallorca went downhill. This season, Mallorca has just one win (5 draws and 3 losses) and has slipped to 15th place in the standings. They are in danger of relegation. Lee’s partner in soul, Betad Murki, who finished fourth in La Liga scoring with 15 goals last season, has also been criticized for his poor form this season. He currently has four goals. 스포츠토토
To avoid the worst, Mallorca will be hoping for the return of their ace.
“Mallorca is closely monitoring the situation of Lee at PSG,” said Spain”s Futbol desde Mallorca. If the situation doesn’t change, Mallorca will ask for a loan in January,” reports Futbol desde Mallorca.
“At the moment, Lee is hardly part of Luis Enrique’s plans. He was away from PSG for the Asian Games. It’s still early in the season and things could change, but he’ll have to compete with the likes of Mbappe, Kolo Moani, Dembele, Hammers and Asensio for a place in the side. His only option seems to be to move to midfield,” he said.
“A move to midfield is not a good prospect for him. Mallorca are aware of this and are keeping a close eye on him.”
Finally, the publication concludes by expressing the hope that “we will see Lee again in January”.
