Lee Kang-in - Korean star in the renewed PSG project

The global betting company 1xBet talks about the new career stage for young attacking midfielder Lee Kang-in, who moved to one of the strongest clubs worldwide.

PSG new direction

The French football giant continues the transfer revolution. After unfortunate failures in the Champions League, the Parisians' management decided to change the development vector. The reorganisation will begin from the top positions: instead of Christophe Galtier, who did not live up to expectations, Luis Enrique will take the coaching chair.

The former Spain coach has returned to club football after a six-year break. PSG intends to build a long-term project around Enrique, which will be very different from what we recently used to see in Paris. Leo Messi has ended his European career, Kylian Mbappe is about to leave for Real Madrid and Neymar is too often injured. The big trio time is over and the Parisians need to come up with something new.

Lee Kang-in’s transfer

The summer off-season is the most logical time for an extensive reorganisation. The Parisians are seriously engaged in the search for new performers. The club now has six newcomers, including Lee Kang-in. Korean talent transferred from Mallorca for 22 million euros, excluding bonuses. Last season he scored 6 goals with additional 6 assists.

First of all, PSG's new attacking midfielder is known for his spectacular dribbling. In Paris, spoiled by the football stars' games, this quality is especially appreciated. Another Lee Kang-in strength is his high speed, which allows him to bypass his rivals. The player likes to move to the wings and plays well in free space.

Note that Lee became not only the first Korean but also the first Asian football representative, who moved to the richest club in France. So this transfer has already gone down in history.

The midfielder made his debut for the South Korean national team in 2019. At the youth level, he received the U-20 World Cup Golden Ball and became the best young player of the year in Korea.

Now Paris Saint-Germain will play a friendly match with the South Korean club Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in Busan. The French are interested in promoting their brand in Asia and a local player in the team will surely help them. Perhaps one day, Lee Kang-in will be able to reach the magnificent Son Heung-min level and will be cheered not only at home but throughout the world.
