‘Where is my final destination?’
Cho Gyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors), who grew up as a leading striker for the Korean men’s soccer team, is still popular. The news that German professional football Bundesliga has joined Mainz has been reported. The key is the transfer fee.
German media ‘Kicker’ reported on the 8th (Korean time) that Mainz showed interest in signing Cho Kyu-sung, but turned their attention after checking the conditions such as the transfer fee. The beginning of the Mainz transfer rumor was a report by the British media ‘Evening Standard’ on the 7th.
Cho Kyu-sung rose to stardom through the World Cup in Qatar, which ended at the end of last year. He even got on the national team, running the best stock as K-League 1 scorer and FA Cup MVP. And in the second match of group H against Ghana (2-3 loss), he wrote a new history with the first multi-goal in the history of Korean football in the World Cup finals. With his skill and handsome appearance, he has grown into a global star as well as in Korea.
After the tournament, he received interest from leading clubs. In the past, Ki Sung-yueng and Cha Doo-ri were known to domestic soccer fans for their excellent performances, and they were surrounded by transfer rumors such as Celtic, a prestigious Scottish club familiar to domestic soccer fans, and Fenerbahce (Turkiye), the former team of Kim Min-jae (27, Naples). In addition, it is known that Mainz, where national team midfielder Lee Jae-seong (31) is playing, has also been added.
‘Evening Standard’ reported that Jeonbuk’s technical director Park Ji-sung is negotiating with Mainz in England. He added that Mainz is the most advanced, ahead of rival teams. However, the temperature difference changed a day after the news was delivered. German media reported that negotiations broke down because of the transfer fee. Jeonbuk has no intention of sending Cho Kyu-seong, the next national team starter and team ace, at a bargain price. 스포츠토토
According to Cho Kyu-sung, he has not completely failed. It is known that he proposed conditions that Jeonbuk could satisfy. Considering the general process of player transfers being carried out through several negotiations, it can be interpreted that Cho Kyu-sung’s move to Mainz is still open.
The key is the transfer fee. Jeonbuk wants about 2.5 million pounds (3.8 billion won) for Cho Kyu-sung’s ransom. Attention is focusing on whether the two sides will be able to narrow their differences through various options, such as other options or installment payment of the transfer fee.
