Reporter Fabrizio Romano, who is familiar with the European football transfer market, said on his social media (SNS) that “Cho Kyu-seong has three proposals” on the 11th (Korean time). The three proposals Romano revealed are Celtic (Scotland), Minnesota United (USA), and Mainz (Germany).
Cho Kyu-seong is the biggest hit in Korean soccer last year. He went through Sangmu Kimcheon and Jeonbuk in the domestic professional soccer K League and scored 17 league goals. He was crowned top scorer in Division 1. He was also named in the best 11 in the striker category. He was noticed at the World Cup in Qatar. He rose to stardom with his good looks. He even scored.
Overseas teams continued to show interest in Cho Kyu-sung. Currently narrowed down to Celtic, Minnesota and Mainz. According to Romano, Celtic said they would give Jeonbuk an additional 50% of the transfer fee Celtic received when Cho Kyu-seong transferred to another team after a transfer fee of 3 million euros (4 billion won).
However, Celtic added a proviso that up to 6 million euros (8 billion won) can be given additionally according to the ‘sell-on’ clause that divides some of the transfer fee in the future. Cell-on is a clause that passes a certain amount (rate) of the transfer fee that occurs when re-transferring to the previous team.
Minnesota offered 5 million euros (6.7 billion won), the most among the three clubs, for the transfer fee. Minnesota also offered an additional transfer fee of 30%. Romano said that in the case of Mainz, he offered a transfer fee of close to 3 million euros.
