Amidst many words about the destination of Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk), which is attracting attention, Mainz (Germany) suddenly stepped out.
The UK’s ‘Evening Standard’ reported on the 7th, “Cho Kyu-seong will be transferred to Mainz, not Celtic (Scotland), in the winter transfer market in January.” The media said, “Jeonbuk accepted the offer of 2.5 million pounds (about 3.9 billion won) from Mainz. Park Ji-sung, technical director of Jeonbuk, who played for Manchester United in the past, stepped up for this negotiation,” he added.
Cho Kyu-seong, who became the K-League 1 top scorer with 17 goals last year, showed his true worth at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. 토토 Cho Kyu-seong, who made his World Cup debut as a substitute in the first group match against Uruguay, left a strong impression by scoring multiple goals with a header as a starter in the second group match against Ghana. In the history of Korean soccer, Cho Kyu-seong was the first to score multiple goals in a single World Cup match.
Afterwards, he showed off his skills to the fullest by showing good performance by starting in the final group stage match against Portugal and the round of 16 against Brazil.
Overseas teams showed interest in this kind of Cho Kyu-sung. Including Fenerbahce (Turkey), Celtic (Scotland), and Stade Rennes (France) were mentioned as future destinations for Cho Kyu-sung. In particular, in the case of Celtic, overseas media also cited it as a potential destination.
If Cho Kyu-seong transfers to Mainz, he will eat rice with Lee Jae-seong, a teammate of the national team. After moving to Mainz in 2021, Lee Jae-seong has been active as the main axis of the team for two years.
