‘Lee Kang-in vs. Kim Min-jae’ Mallorca-Naples Korean tour, why it’s held in June instead of July

Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) and Kim Min-jae (26, Naples) will return to Korea wearing their team uniforms.

A soccer official said on the 3rd, “A friendly match between Mallorca and Napoli is scheduled in Korea in June. Lee Kang-in and Kim Min-jae are likely to play. The two teams decided to play a friendly match by bringing Lee Kang-in and Kim Min-jae, respectively, to aim for the Korean soccer market.”

Compared to the usual Asian tours of European teams, the timing is ambiguous. European teams give their players a one-month vacation at the end of the season in late May or early June. After that, the team will be reconvened in early July and a pre-season schedule will be held for one month. It is common to go on a pre-season tour to Asia, the US, Australia, etc. during this time.

Mallorca and Napoli will board a flight to Korea without a vacation as soon as the 2022-23 season ends. The reason is simple. This is because Lee Kang-in and Kim Min-jae can leave the team when the summer transfer window opens in July. The two teams coordinated a Korean tour without fail while Lee Kang-in and Kim Min-jae were on the team.

Lee Kang-in is receiving attention from Atletico Madrid (Spain), Manchester City, Aston Villa, Burnley and Newcastle (above England). A transfer this summer is likely. He has few days left to play for Mallorca. From the point of view of Mallorca, it is a plan to step on Korean soil once at this point when Lee Kang-in’s performance has reached its peak.

Kim Min-jae is also in a similar position. Kim Min-jae is a player who is endlessly rumored to transfer to big European clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool (above England) and Paris Saint-Germain (France). His value skyrocketed. While Napoli’s Serie A victory is certain this season, Kim Min-jae can continue his challenge on a new stage next season 스포츠토토.

Also, Kim Min-jae is scheduled for basic military training this summer. Kim Min-jae, who previously won gold medals at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, is exempted from military service and can complete his military service by completing basic military training and volunteering for 544 hours. Napoli is in a position to play a friendly match in Korea right before Kim Min-jae enters military training.

Besides Mallorca and Naples, there are many European clubs visiting Korea this summer. At the end of July, Celtic (Scotland), Wolverhampton and Manchester City (above England), AS Roma (Italy), and Atletico Madrid (Spain) held a pre-season friendly match in Korea. Among them, Celtic belongs to Oh Hyun-gyu, and Wolverhampton belongs to Hwang Hee-chan.
