‘Buyout of 26 billion won’ Lee Kang-in, EPL love call West Ham → Aston Villa Correction

Reporter Juan Taura from Mallorca’s local broadcast said on his social network service (SNS), “Lee Kang-in will leave Mallorca if there is a team that pays 18 million euros. It has been agreed that he will leave as long as he pays that amount.”
There was a lot of controversy over the truth of the buyout agreed between Lee Kang-in and Mallorca this season. Lee Kang-in, who received great interest from Spain and England in the winter transfer market, eventually stayed due to Mallorca’s refusal.
During this process, Mallorca announced that it would not tolerate Lee Kang-in’s transfer except for a buyout. Coach Javier Aguirre also threatened in an official event, “If there is a team that pays 30 million euros (approximately 43.7 billion won) as stated in the contract, I will send Lee Kang-in.” 30 million euros was no small sum for an investment in a winter transfer market that wants an immediate sense of power.
Mallorca’s refusal to transfer Lee Kang-in expressed his dissatisfaction by ‘unfollowing’ the club’s channel as if he was hurt. Still, Lee Kang-in, who made up his mind like a professional and performed outstandingly in the second half, recently broke the dribble 9 times in the match against Celta Vigo, giving Mallorca a valuable victory. 먹튀검증

Spain’s ‘Todo Pichaes’ said, “West Ham is willing to pay the buyout amount to Lee Kang-in.” Then, hours later, he corrected: “Villa, not West Ham.” The villa was also a place that showed interest in Lee Kang-in last winter.
Reporter Taura revealed that Lee Kang-in’s 18 million euro buyout is not a barrier to his departure from Mallorca this summer. English Premier League clubs, including Villa, are rich in capital and make enough investments in the summer, so it is worth targeting Lee Kang-in.
