Two players are expected to advance to Europe from the K League this summer. The main characters are Cho Kyu-sung (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai) and Yang Hyun-joon (21, Gangwon FC).
An official from Cho Kyu-sung’s side said in a telephone interview with the newspaper on the 6th, “We are talking about the transfer with FC 메이저놀이터추천 Mitwilan (Danish) club.” “The club and players are also positive about transferring to Mitwillan,” he said. Mitwillan has been interested in recruiting Cho Kyu-sung. The player is waiting for another offer In the end, he decided to transfer to Mitwillan. The Jeonbuk club is also negotiating with Mitwillan as it has decided to allow the transfer this summer. Park Ji-sung, the technical director, is reportedly leading the transfer.
Rumors of Cho Kyu-sung’s transfer to Mitwillan were first reported in Europe. Mike McGrath, a reporter for the British Telegraph, said, “Cho Kyu-sung received attention from the English Championship (second division) club, but eventually agreed to transfer with Mitwilan for a transfer fee of 2.6 million pounds (KRW 4.4 billion).” English Football Insider also said, “Lester City, Watford, and Blackburn (England’s second division) all failed to recruit Cho Kyu-sung. “Mitwillan has become the winner,” he reported.
Rumors of Cho Kyu-sung’s entry into Europe continued right after the FIFA Qatar World Cup last year. Cho Kyu-sung, who emerged as the top star through the World Cup, received love calls from Mainz (Germany), Celtic (Scotland) and Minnesota United (USA). Cho Kyu-sung also strongly wanted to advance to Europe, but it was canceled due to opposition from the club and persuasion that he wanted to transfer in the summer.
As the summer transfer market has begun, Mitwillan is preparing to transfer. Mitwillan is a team that has consistently played in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) or the Europa League (UEL) in recent years. He was eliminated from the UCL preliminary round and mainly played in the UEL finals. This season, he will participate in the second qualifying round of the Euro or Conference League (UECL), which is one level lower than UCL and UEL.
Opinions are expected to be divided over Cho Kyu-sung’s transfer to Mitwillan. After missing a chance to advance to the German Bundesliga in January, he eventually seemed to be heading to the Danish league. The Danish League is the 16th-ranked league in the UEFA League. Some analysts say that Mitwilan may serve as a stepping stone for his future entry into the EPL, given that he is the owner of Brentford in the English Premier League (EPL). However, even this has little precedent, so it seems inevitable to have a formidable competition in Europe.
Yang Hyun-joon, who had a conflict with the club over his entry into Europe, also opened the way to transfer to Celtic. This is because Gangwon CEO Kim Byung-ji and Yang Hyun-joon met in person and made a dramatic reconciliation. An official from the Gangwon club also said, “We have decided to review Yang Hyun-joon’s ‘no transfer’ policy this summer.”
Celtic offered a transfer to the Gangwon club in May to recruit Yang Hyun-joon, but Gangwon refused to allow Yang Hyun-joon, a key player, to transfer during the season. In response, Yang Hyun-joon publicly expressed his dissatisfaction, asking him to keep his promise to allow him to enter Europe last year when he was a former CEO and director. The conflict between the two sides reached its peak, exchanging sharp remarks to each other through the media.
However, the situation turned around as CEO Kim Byung-ji and Yang Hyun-joon met in person to resolve the misunderstanding. The Gangwon club has also decided to review Celtic’s proposal positively. Considering that the player’s will is so strong and the team’s atmosphere, the club’s review will soon mean acceptance of the transfer. As Celtic is looking for not only Yang Hyun-joon but also other offensive resources, there is a possibility that the Gangwon club will make a quick decision. If the transfer is confirmed, Yang Hyun-joon will have a meal with Oh Hyun-kyu at Celtic.
