While Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) openly expressed dissatisfaction with his team, it was pointed out that the reason why Lee Kang-in had no choice but to be angry with the club was because the Mallorca club did not keep its promise.
Spain Coffe said on the 26th (Korean time), “Lee Kang-in joined Mallorca through a free contract after terminating his contract with Valencia, and there was a condition to allow transfer when the opportunity to go to a bigger club came.” He rejected offers from other clubs.
Through this transfer market, Lee Kang-in is receiving love calls from various clubs such as the English Premier League (EPL) and the Spanish Primera Liga. This is the background for Lee Kang-in, who is in a contract relationship with the Mallorca club, to openly express dissatisfaction.
Lee Kang-in is said to be interested in various clubs, including Brighton & Hove Albion and Spain’s Atletico Madrid, starting with the recent EPL transfer rumors between Newcastle United and Aston Villa. All of them are larger clubs than Mallorca. At the time of his joining, if the club promised, it can be seen as a situation where he has to allow a transfer.
According to reports, Lee Kang-in also directly conveyed his intention to leave Mallorca and transfer as promised by the club. However, Kope explained that the Mallorca club has a policy to only allow transfers through a buyout known for about 20 million euros (about 26.9 billion won) despite the interest of other clubs. In effect, it established a policy of ‘no transfer’.
Of course, from Mallorca’s point of view, transferring Lee Kang-in, a key resource, during the season is too risky. This is the background of persuading Lee Kang-in with the content that he will open the door in the transfer market this summer, not winter. However, as Lee Kang-in has a chance to transfer to a bigger club, he wants to take on a new challenge right away. The reason for the deepening conflict between the two sides is the background of Lee Kang-in’s public dissatisfaction.
The reality is that it is difficult for Lee Kang-in to transfer this month if the club’s policy of allowing only transfers through buyout does not change until the end, and no club that satisfies this appears. Obviously, it is because the contract relationship is until June 2025. Lee Kang-in is also expressing his dissatisfaction with not keeping his original promise, but only to the extent that it does not cross the line. 스포츠토토
At least, it is meaningful that through this process, ‘at least’, after finishing this season, the possibility of transferring in the summer has greatly increased. Reporter Juanmi Sanchez of Marca also explained, “Lee Kang-in is trying to leave now, but the club is asking for a summer transfer.” Considering his performance and potential this season, there seems to be no doubt that other clubs will pour in ‘love calls’ for Lee Kang-in even after the season is over.
