The mainz team, which is training in Spain, opened its mouth directly to Cho Kyu-seong (24).
Director Christian Heidel talked about Cho Kyu-sung, who has emerged as a hot topic in the winter transfer market, through an interview with German media kicker at the training camp in Marbella, Spain on the 10th (Korean time).
Currently, Cho Kyu-sung is interested in Mainz, Celtic (Scotland), and one of the American MLS clubs. Celtic are leading the way by offering a transfer fee of 3 million pounds (approximately 4.5 billion won).
Cho Kyu-seong scored 17 goals in 31 K-League 1 games in the 2022 season, becoming the first top scorer in his life and contributing to Jeonbuk’s FA Cup victory. 온라인카지노
Moreover, Cho Kyu-seong participated in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and became the first multi-goal hero in the history of the World Cup in Korea with a multi-goal in the second leg of the group stage against Ghana. He was very active in the group stage including this match, and he received attention from many European clubs.
It is known that Mainz was actively interested and sent an offer. However, Mainz had many competitors. In particular, when Celtic proposed with a stronger financial power, Mainz, which did not have much cash, was embarrassed.
Heidel general manager emphasized to the press, “We like that player (Cho Kyu-seong). That’s why we suggested it.” “If Jeonbuk can sell him for the transfer fee (Celtic’s offer), Mainz can’t get involved,” he said.
The media said, “Mainz extremely limited the candidates for the position, and the initial discussions were conducted through video conferences.
“Mainz is in a situation where they can’t sign two players because of the high transfer fee. If both players are needed, one player can be recruited on loan,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mainz will resume the 2022/23 season on the 21st with a 16th round schedule against Stuttgart. Mainz is currently in 10th place with 19 points.
