Released by Valencia this summer, the young Lee Kang-In would still be on the shelves of AS Monaco.
This Monday, FC Valence formalized the termination of young Lee Kang-In’s contract. A great hope for Spanish football, the 20-year-old attacking midfielder could not be registered in La Liga this season because of his status as a non-EU player. Arrived in Valence in 2011, the South Korean left his training club by the back door.
A situation that could ultimately benefit AS Monaco, who was tracking the player at the start of the transfer window. The principality’s club, falling from Troyes (2-1) this weekend, could get their hands on an excellent player without spending any money. Olympique de Marseille was also one of the clubs interested in Lee Kang-In. But according to the information of the Spanish media AS, the Mallorca club would already have a head start on the file. The 20-year-old would be very close to signing a three-year contract with the promoted, where he would play alongside another nugget of Asian football: Takefusa Kubo.
