Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), who is uncertain about Kylian Mbafe and his companion, is in the process of recruiting a storm. In particular, there is a story that they are close to signing Barcelona winger Usman Dembele and Portuguese striker Gonzalo Hamus, and Lee Kang-in is also predicting fierce competition.
Barcelona winger Dembele is heading to Paris PSG. European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on his SNS on the 4th (Korean time), “Dembele is leaving Barcelona for PSG. The transfer fee is 50 million euros (about 71 billion won).” Then, Romano shouted “Here we go”, the signature phrase used when a player’s transfer is certain.
Dembele received a lot of expectations for a huge transfer fee when he joined Barcelona. Dembele joined Barcelona in 2017 for a transfer fee of 140 million euros (approximately 198.9 billion won). Previously at Borussia Dortmund, he showed explosive dribbling ability and individual skills and received a lot of expectations.
However, frequent injuries were the blemish of his career. Dembele has been plagued by injuries, never having played a full season in his 5 seasons. Home fans even booed Dembele, who paid a huge transfer fee and was brought in, but did not perform well.
However, coach Xavi sent his faith to the end. Coach Xavi consistently guaranteed Dembele a chance to compete, and eventually, Dembele, who reciprocated that trust, gained strength in the second half of the 2021-22 season and became the league’s assistant king.
However, in the 2022-23 season, he gave up the starting position to transfer student Rafinya. He gained strength at the end of the season and played an active role in La Liga last season, recording 5 goals and 7 assists in 25 games, but compared to his transfer fee and expectations, it is true that it is difficult to see that he is still perfectly worth his ransom.메이저놀이터
PSG paid attention to Dembele, who was struggling at Barcelona. The influence of the newly appointed head coach, Luis Enrique, was strong. Santi Auna of France’s ‘Foot Mercato’ said on the 6th, “Dembele is PSG’s priority if Kylian Mbappe leaves. We have a buyout of ,” he said.
In addition, Portuguese national striker Hamus is also receiving attention from PSG. Accordingly, ‘Transfer Markt’, a media specializing in the European football transfer market, released PSG’s expected lineup, and the attacking team consisted of Neymar, Hamus, and Dembele. The midfield was built by Luis, Ugarte, and Vitinha, while the defense was built by Mendes, Hernández, Marquinhos, and Hakimi.
The names of Lee Kang-in and Asensio, who were newly recruited in the transfer market this summer, were not visible. As such, fierce competition for the starting lineup is predicted. If Neymar remains, it seems that he will take a spot on the left side, and Dembele, Asensio, and Lee Kang-in can compete for the right winger. However, since Lee Kang-in can play the role of a number 10 offensive midfielder, it is positive that various combinations are possible depending on coach Enrique’s choice.
