The fact that he is not in 100% physical condition because he is taking a break after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is considered the biggest reason for hesitating to go abroad in the January transfer market.
Cho Kyu-seong, who scored multiple goals against Ghana in the Qatar World Cup, has emerged as the top topic in the winter transfer market as interest from European clubs exploded even before the tournament.
Celtic (Scotland), which is known to have shown interest in Cho Kyu-sung as the K-League 1 top scorer even before the World Cup, and recently Mainz (Germany) have shown active interest in him.
Celtic officially proposed a transfer fee of 3 million pounds (approximately 4.5 billion won) to Jeonbuk on the 8th, and it is known that Mainz also offered a similar transfer fee.
Recently, both clubs even offered a proposal to pay Jeonbuk additionally by deducting a certain portion of the transfer fee that occurs when re-transferring to another place.
However, after finishing the first half of the season in Jeonbuk, Cho Kyu-sung is leaning towards Europe this summer.
In a phone call with Xports News on the 14th, Cho Kyu-seong’s agent said, “Cho Kyu-seong will soon come up (from the Jeonbuk clubhouse) and discuss the transfer with his family.” I expect to decide on my move on Monday (16th), the day I leave.”
He continued, “Cho Kyu-seong continues to worry about his current physical condition.”
Cho Kyu-seong returned to Korea on the 7th of last month after finishing the World Cup in Qatar, and not only has no sense of actual combat for nearly a month, but also has digested external activities by lowering his exercise intensity.
On the other hand, Celtic is in the middle of the season, and Mainz will have to race in the second half of the Bundesliga soon after the World Cup break, so they have no choice but to demand 100% physical condition from their players.
On the 12th, Cho Kyu-seong also said, “If I don’t go out in the winter, the teams I’ve suggested may not offer it in the summer, and my physical condition and price change. I have to raise my condition to 100%, but if I go to Europe in my current state, I don’t know if I will have some competitiveness. I think the European stage is cold, so I’m thinking about how long they will wait.” 먹튀검증
My heart wants to go right now, but my body doesn’t.
However, while Jeonbuk wants Cho Kyu-sung to remain for the time being, it is a nuance that they will continue to respect the players’ intentions as there is still time left.
An official from Jeonbuk said, “I don’t think Kyu-Sung Cho has made a decision yet. I think he’ll make a decision while improving his physical condition at the training camp in Spain.” If you play in Jeonbuk for six months and leave in the summer, it will help a lot in your performance and box office, but each has his or her own position.”
Director Park Ji-sung is expected to talk to Cho Kyu-sung again after joining Jeonbuk’s team for winter training with Roberto Di Matteo, technical advisor, and 16-al flying to Barcelona, Spain. This cannot be denied.
