Atletico Madrid’s (ATM) pursuit of Lee Kang-in in the Spanish Primera Liga (La Liga) appears to be far from over.
After his breakout season with Mallorca last season, which saw him rise to the top of La Liga, ATM have been relentless in their pursuit of the South Korean international.
They made their intentions known as early as last winter’s transfer window and were one of the most active teams in the summer transfer window.
Local media reported that world-renowned ATM coach Diego Simeone himself wanted Lee, and that ATM were the closest to signing him.
However, ATM’s wish was not fulfilled.
Lee chose Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
PSG attempted a “hijack”.
“ATM want to take Lee from PSG,” said Todofichajes in Spain.
Lee is a favorite of Simeone.
They tried to sign him in the past.
But it didn’t work out.
He was close to signing in the summer transfer window.
However, PSG’s offer was too much for Mallorca to refuse,” the report said.
The plan is based on the idea that Lee will have a hard time competing for a starting spot at PSG.
Alongside Lee, PSG have added a number of attacking options.
With Kylian Mbappe still in the fold, the new arrivals include Marco Asensio, Ousmane Dembele, Bradley Barca, Kolo Moani, and Gonzalo Hamus.
These are the players who motivated Lee to join.

This has led to speculation in local media that he could play in the midfield instead of as an attacking option.
“He is looking for a way out. He will try to find it next January.
ATM could be the solution. ATM is short of wingers. If Lee comes to ATM, he can get a starting spot.
Also, Luis Enrique is not in a good situation and will make a lot of moves in the winter transfer window, so ATM thinks it is possible to bring Lee Kang-in.”
“ATM’s plan is to sign Lee on loan,” he emphasized.
The outlet also reported that along with Lee, there is one other player ATM wants.
It’s midfielder Carlos Solerda, a former Spain international who joined PSG from Valencia in 2022.
He played 35 games for the club last season, including 26 in the league, and has made five league appearances this season.
