If Lee Kang-in transfers, 22.8 billion won, what is the ranking of transfer fees in Korea?

Will Lee Kang-in, who is playing for Mallorca, enter the EPL?

The British media ‘Sports Witness’ said, “Newcastle are looking into signing Lee Kang-in. They will pay a buyout of 17 million euros (approximately 22.8 billion won).”

After being acquired by the Saudi sovereign wealth fund in October 2021, Newcastle immediately became the biggest player in the European football market.

Backed by huge amounts of capital, Newcastle are aggressively recruiting players to enhance the team’s status, and Lee Kang-in is one of them.

Lee Kang-in, who can play not only as a second striker but also as a central midfielder, is highly regarded for creating space based on his excellent passing ability.

The general consensus is that the 17 million euros designated as the buyout amount is not too expensive considering the atmosphere in the transfer market where ransom prices skyrocketed.

If the transfer is done according to the buyout amount, it will be the third highest transfer fee ever among Korean players. 온라인카지노

The player with the highest transfer fee among Korean players is Son Heung-min, who moved from Leverkusen to Tottenham in the 2015-16 season. At the time, Son Heung-min’s transfer fee was 30 million euros (approximately 40.2 billion won), and considering his performance so far, Tottenham hit the jackpot.

Kim Min-jae, who moved to Naples, Italy this season, is second in history with 18.05 million euros (approximately 24.2 billion won). Kim Min-jae also made a smooth landing on the Italian stage and is now receiving attention from big clubs as his ransom has jumped 3 times compared to the time of the transfer.

Hwang Hee-chan, who completed the transfer to Wolverhampton, is followed by 16.7 million euros (approximately 22.4 billion won). Hwang Hee-chan raised the transfer fee in two years, which was 12 million euros when he transferred to Leipzig in the 2020-21 season, and is located next to Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae. If Lee Kang-in’s buyout clause is invoked, he will overtake Hwang Hee-chan and become third in history.

The transfer fee of Park Ji-sung, who transferred to Manchester United in the 2005-06 season, is still listed in the top 10. Coach Alex Ferguson paid attention to Ji-Sung Park, who was playing a key role at PSV Eindhoven, and was able to embrace an unsung hero after spending only 7.3 million euros (approximately 9.8 billion won) in transfer fees.
