The super-gap conditions that Atletico Madrid will persuade Lee Kang-in were revealed through local media in Spain.
Lee Kang-in has established himself as a key midfielder for Mallorca this season and has grown into a player that draws attention in La Liga. Along with his long-term kick and pass, his weak points, defense and speed, have improved, and Lee Kang-in’s share in Mallorca’s game has increased significantly, and major European clubs have begun to pay attention to his performance.
Among the clubs showing interest, the most active team is Atletico, the prestigious La Liga.
There have already been reports that Atletico tried to sign Lee Kang-in by offering Mallorca 10 million euros (approximately 14.5 billion won) last winter.
At the time, Mallorca did not want to send Lee Kang-in, a key member of the team, during the season, so he rejected the offer and stuck to the buyout, so the transfer was not completed.
Atlético will likely remain interested this summer.
Atlético’s interest has already been reported in Spain several times, and this time, news has emerged that even manager Diego Simeone has approved the recruitment, and Tottenham, Aston Villa, and Newcastle are expected to actively participate in the Lee Kang-in scout.
In the midst of this, it is a hot topic because the conditions for Atletico to persuade Lee Kang-in to join the team have been revealed.
On the 9th (Korean time), the Spanish media ‘El Gol Dhital’ reported, “Lee Kang-in makes Atletico pull out the checkbook.”
El Gol Diethal said, “Atletico asked Mallorca about Lee Kang-in’s value a few weeks ago, and the answer is the same as now. It doesn’t look like it will be sold.”
He continued, “If Atletico finds the perfect conditions to recruit Lee Kang-in, his destination could be Atletico. A good contract can be added,” he said, predicting that Atletico would persuade Lee Kang-in on the condition of a Champions League and a salary increase.
According to reports, Lee Kang-in is currently known to be receiving 500,000 euros (about 700 million won) from Mallorca, and is receiving 1 million euros (about 1.4 billion won) as Ivo Grbic, the lowest-paid player at Atletico. Lee Kang-in’s salary is currently half of Atletico’s lowest salary.메이저사이트
Atletico plans to raise Lee Kang-in’s annual salary to a much higher level than the current one. The media explained that “Atletico can give an annual salary of 3 million to 4 million euros (approximately 4.3 to 5.8 billion won) per season for a 5-year contract period,” and can increase the annual salary up to 8 times.
El Gol Dhital emphasized that the salary does not guarantee a contract with Lee Kang-in, however, and said, “Atletico may be ready to start negotiations. The sooner the work begins, the higher the contract success rate will be. We are pursuing it,” he said, saying that he needed to quickly start negotiations.
While Atletico is ready to offer an annual salary suitable for Lee Kang-in’s performance this season, much attention is expected to be paid to whether other clubs will prepare a plan to significantly raise Lee Kang-in’s salary in line with Atletico’s salary increase plan.
