South Korean national soccer team striker Cho Kyu-sung (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai) is closer to moving to Europe. FC Midtjylland (Denmark) and Jeonbuk have confirmed that negotiations are ongoing. Mittwilan is the only team to have made an official offer for Cho so far.
The news of Cho’s move to Midtjylland was first revealed on social media (SNS) by British Telegraph reporter Mike McGrath on May 5 (KST). “Jo Kyu-sung, who has attracted interest from the likes of Watford, Leicester City and Blackburn in the English Championship (second tier), is heading to Mittwilan for a transfer fee of £2.6 million (approximately KRW4.3 billion),” the report said.

Jeonbuk did not deny the report. On June 6, a club official admitted, “Negotiations were held with Mitwylan recently. We have exchanged opinions two or three times.” With technical director Park Ji-sung leading the charge, an Italian agent who has managed several Korean players with European experience in the past is understood to be involved in the negotiations.

According to sources, Jeonbuk has set a price tag of €3.2 million to €3.5 million (about 4.5 billion to 4.9 billion won) and wants a deal that includes a “sell-on” clause for future transfers. Naturally, this is the basis of the talks with Mitwillan.

However, the deal is far from finalized. There are disagreements on how the transfer fee will be paid and when the player will join. Mittwylan wants to pay the transfer fee in several installments, while Jeonbuk only allows a maximum of two, as is customary.

In addition, Meatwillan wants to rush the signing in view of the 2023-2024 season, which is set to begin later this month, while Jeonbuk wants him to play until the 21st round home game of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 against FC Seoul at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on August 8. 토토사이트

Reactions from the soccer world are divided. While it is understandable that Jeonbuk aspires to play in Europe and compete for a starting spot, many are disappointed that the “next big thing” who scored two goals at last year’s World Cup in Qatar chose a non-mainstream club first. Especially since the cooperation with the English Premier League’s Brentford, which is known for Mitwillan’s strengths, has recently fallen into disrepute. Moreover, considering that the European soccer transfer market has just begun, there are those who believe that he can wait for better conditions and teams.
