Mainz general manager, disapproving of the transfer fee of Cho Kyu-seong… Scotland’s final destination?
The biggest stumbling block for national striker Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk), who is aiming to advance to Europe, is expected to be the transfer fee.
In an interview with the local sports media ‘Kicker’ on the 11th (Korean time), Christian Heidel, general manager of German professional football Bundesliga Mainz, acknowledged his interest, saying, “We liked Kyu-Sung Cho and inquired about signing him.”
However, Heidel general manager was reluctant about the high transfer fee.
Mainz is currently competing with Celtic, a prestigious Scottish league, over Kyu-Sung Cho. Mainz initially set a fee of 2.5 million pounds for the transfer of Cho Kyu-sung.
Recently, local media reported that Ji-sung Park, technical director of Jeonbuk, is negotiating a transfer with Mainz in London, England, but no news of an official contract has been heard yet.
In a situation where negotiations with Mainz are delayed, Celtic is showing a strong will to recruit Cho Kyu-sung by raising the transfer fee.
According to British media ‘Sky Sports’, Celtic offered Jeonbuk a transfer fee of up to 3 million pounds for the recruitment of Cho Kyu-sung. 토토사이트
Jeonbuk, who has to give up Cho Kyu-seong, the main force of the new season, has no choice but to receive a large transfer fee and hand it over.
In response, Heidel general manager expressed disapproval, saying, “If the transfer fee for Cho Kyu-sung goes up to that level, Mainz can’t care anymore.”
From the player’s point of view, the German Bundesliga, which has a higher level of quality, is more attractive than Scotland, but the transfer fee cannot be ignored. Currently, in the ‘money fight’, Mainz is somewhat behind Celtic.
As a result, Scotland is emerging as a promising destination for Cho Kyu-sung’s next destination.
Sky Sports reported that “Cho Kyu-sung is negotiating a transfer with Celtic.” According to the media, there are more clubs that have shown interest in Cho Kyu-sung. It is Rangers, Celtic’s biggest rivals in the Scottish League.
However, it is reported that Rangers are keeping an eye on Cho Kyu-seong, but unlike Celtic, they have not made an official proposal to Jeonbuk.
