Now, the somewhat shocking salary of Lee Kang-in (22, Real Mallorca), who has grown into a midfielder representing Korean soccer, has been revealed. It was a ransom that was close to a bargain price. What’s even more regrettable is that the terms of the contract are bound to be seen as unreasonable by anyone. This is because the buyout (transfer allowed amount) is set quite high compared to the very cheap salary. While it is certain that he will leave Real Mallorca in the transfer market this summer, Lee Kang-in’s agent’s negotiating ability is expected to be on the cutting board once again.
Spanish media El Gol Dietal reported on the 9th (Korean time), “Atletico Madrid inquired about the transfer fee for Lee Kang-in from Real Mallorca, and received a response.”
Big clubs are competing in earnest to recruit Lee Kang-in. Summarizing local reports so far, it seems that Atletico Madrid is most eager to recruit Lee Kang-in. In addition, English Premier League (EPL) club Tottenham, where Son Heung-min (31) is playing, is also focusing on recruiting Lee Kang-in.
The fact that Atletico Madrid and Tottenham are targeting means that Lee Kang-in’s skills are already being recognized in Europe. Moreover, Atletico Madrid is led by world-renowned manager Diego Simeone (53, Argentina). Atletico Madrid’s desire to recruit Lee Kang-in translates into the need for Lee Kang-in’s ability to coach Simeone.
Here is one reason why other clubs have no choice but to salivate over Lee Kang-in. This is because of its relatively low price. If a player with the skills of Lee Kang-in is cheap, there is no reason for other teams not to recruit him.
In the midst of this, Lee Kang-in’s annual salary was revealed through El Goal Dietal. El Goal Diethal said, “Lee Kang-in’s annual salary at Real Mallorca reaches 500,000 euros (approximately 725 million won) (ganando 500.000 euros).” con mejor salario)”.
In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that Lee Kang-in stood out from this season. Lee Kang-in, who grew up in the Valencia youth team, failed to establish himself in his original team and left no significant mark. Eventually, in the summer of 2021 he left Valencia, where he had been with since childhood, and moved to Real Mallorca. After moving to Mallorca and scoring a goal against Valencia, Lee Kang-in did not celebrate and expressed his feelings for his home team.
In the 2021-22 season, Lee Kang-in played 30 games in the league as a member of Real Mallorca and scored 1 goal and 2 assists. In his second season at Real Mallorca, he appeared in 31 league games, scoring 6 goals and 4 assists. He took charge of free kicks and corner kicks within the team, establishing himself as the core of the team in just two seasons of transfer.
If Lee Kang-in goes to Atletico Madrid, how much will he get? First of all, there is currently no player at Atletico Madrid who earns less than Lee Kang-in. El Goal Diethal said, “Atletico Madrid wants Lee Kang-in, and there is no player with a lower salary than him.”
According to Salary Sports, a British media outlet, Lee Kang-in’s annual salary was reported to be 416,000 pounds (approximately 695 million won). The player with the highest salary at Real Mallorca is striker Bedat Muriki with an annual salary of 3,276,000 pounds (approximately 5,479 million won). For reference, Son Heung-min’s annual salary is 9,984,000 pounds (approximately 16,698 million won). It is about 24 times more than Lee Kang-in.
So, what is the salary status of Atletico Madrid? In fact, if you look at Lee Kang-in’s current annual salary, it is beyond imagination. There are only four players who receive more than 10 million pounds. Kokee ranked first in the team with 13,728,000 pounds (approximately 22.96 billion won). It was followed by Jan Oblak with £13.26 million (approximately KRW 22.178 billion), Antoine Griezmann with £12.012 million (approximately KRW 20.09 billion), and Saul Niguez with £10.764 million (approximately KRW 18 billion Korean currency). ), respectively.
On the other hand, who is the main character with the lowest salary at Atletico Madrid? It is Ivo Grevich, who is active as a backup goalkeeper within the team, and is receiving an annual salary of 936,000 pounds (approximately 1.565 billion won). It is last in Atletico Madrid, but it is more than twice as much as Lee Kang-in’s annual salary.
However, there is one provision that can be considered even more absurd. It is a buyout. The buyout amount is abnormally high compared to the salary that is close to cheap. El Goal Diethal said, “For the signing of Lee Kang-in, Atletico Madrid has to pay 20 million euros (approximately 29.25 billion won). With two years left on the contract, Real Mallorca is unlikely to receive less than that amount. don’t,” he said. In fact, most local media outlets are talking about this level of Lee Kang-in’s buyout amount. According to Spanish media Cope Mallorca, Lee Kang-in’s buyout is known to be 18 million euros (26.2 billion won). Football España predicted that Atletico Madrid would offer 20 million euros for Lee Kang-in’s transfer.
A buyout is a clause that allows players to be recruited without the consent of their team if they pay more than the standard amount. The contract period between Lee Kang-in and Real Mallorca is until June 2025, and there are still two years left, but it is expected that it will be difficult to press down due to the buyout clause. As of now, there is a high possibility that they will recruit Lee Kang-in even if they are willing to pay more than the known buyout amount. Moreover, if Atletico Madrid and Tottenham ignite in the scouting competition, Lee Kang-in’s buyout amount could soar even more. Of course, it is the amount taken by the current team, Real Mallorca, but it means that Lee Kang-in’s value is high. However, it is an unreasonable contract with only a very large buyout amount compared to the absurdly low annual salary.
Anyway, from Lee Kang-in’s point of view, if he transfers to Atletico Madrid, he will receive a higher salary. El Goal Diethal said, “I can pay an annual salary of at least 3 to 4 million euros (4.35 billion to 5.85 billion won) each season for the 5-year contract period with Lee Kang-in.” It is about 6 to 8 times more than Lee Kang-in’s current annual salary.먹튀검증
The variable is whether or not Tottenham actively participates in the war. El Goal Dietl said, “The sooner Atletico Madrid starts recruiting Lee Kang-in, the higher the chances of a successful contract. Several other clubs are already in contact with Real Mallorca.” One of the clubs is Tottenham, and according to Son Heung-min’s advice, Tottenham will be able to sign Kang-in Lee.” Earlier, Italian media Tuto Mercato Webb also said, “Now, Lee Kang-in can be sold for an amount of more than 20 million dollars (about 26.46 billion won). Tottenham continues to push for Lee Kang-in.”
Atlético Madrid is one of the three leaders of the Spanish Primera Liga, along with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. If Lee Kang-in, who grew up in Spain and is fluent in Spanish, transfers to Atletico Madrid, it is expected that there will be no difficulties in adapting. World-class players are lined up here. According to Spanish media Pichahes, Lee Kang-in, Spain’s Elche striker Lucas Boye, and Paris Saint-Germain’s multi-player Carlos Soler are the three players Simeone wants. If Lee Kang-in heads to Atletico Madrid, domestic fans’ interest in La Liga is expected to grow even hotter. Which uniform will Lee Kang-in wear on the ground next season?
