‘Lee + Mbappe’ PSG duo imminent…Mbappe says “I’m not leaving”

Lee Kang-in (22-Mallorca) and Kylian Mbappe (24-PSG) could be playing in the same jersey.

Mbappe took to his personal social media accounts on Wednesday to say, “(The transfer rumors about me leaving PSG) are lies. I have already said it several times. I will continue to play for PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) next season. I am very happy here.”

Mbappe was linked with a move to Real Madrid as soon as the transfer window opened this summer, with French outlets such as L’Equipe reporting that “Mbappe looks set to leave PSG for Spain’s Real Madrid ahead of the new season”. After letting go of Karim Benzema, Real Madrid are reportedly looking to bolster their attack with Mbappe.

If Mbappe continues his PSG career, he could potentially play alongside Lee Kang-in. Local media outlets such as Spain’s Relevo and France’s Foot Mercato and L’Equipe broke the news on the 13th that Lee’s move to PSG was imminent.

According to L’Equipe, Lee traveled from Mallorca, Spain, to Paris, France, to undergo a medical test to join PSG as soon as the 2022-23 season ended. Immediately after completing the medical, he boarded a flight from Paris to South Korea and entered the country through Incheon International Airport.

European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said, “Lee Kang-in has completed his PSG medical. It’s only a matter of time before he moves from Mallorca to PSG.” As such, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Lee will join PSG.

It was also confirmed that Lee has signed a 먹튀검증 five-year contract with PSG until the summer of 2028. Behind the scenes, it was reported that PSG offered €15 million (approx. KRW 20.6 billion) for Lee, while Atletico Madrid offered €12 million (approx. KRW 16.5 billion).

It’s time for PSG to clear the traffic. Lionel Messi, 35, who has been a revelation over the past two seasons, has confirmed his departure from PSG to join Inter Miami in the American Major League Soccer (MLS). This could be a generational shift from Messi to Lee.

If Lee joins PSG, he could take over Messi’s role tactically. Lee has been one of the best players in Spanish La Liga this season. He scored six goals and provided six assists in 36 La Liga games as Mallorca secured early promotion to the Champions League. The La Liga secretariat nominated Lee for Team Midfielder of the Year.

In addition to his PSG move, Lee is currently sweating out a call-up to the South Korean national team. Jürgen Klinsmann’s men are scheduled to face Peru and El Salvador in friendly A matches on Sept. 16 and 20, respectively.
