Kang-in Lee signs for four seasons

The South Korean becomes the ninth Majorcan reinforcement of the course. He arrives after terminating his contract with Valencia, where he made his debut at the age of 17.


The signing of Kang-in Lee is already a reality at Real Mallorca. The South Korean player has signed for the next four seasons, until June 30, 2025, as a vermilion footballer after a life from childhood in the ranks of Valencia.

Kang-in Lee (Incheon, South Korea, 2001), left-handed midfielder, thus becomes the Balearic club's ninth reinforcement for this season and expands the roster of attacking footballers in the squad led by Luis García Plaza.

The player arrived in Spain when he was only 10 years old to join the lower categories of Valencia, making his debut in the Valencia-Mestalla subsidiary when he was only 16 years old, and finally made the leap to the first team with the help of Marcelino García Toral when he was 17 years old. .

In 2019, Kang-in Lee was awarded the 2019 Ballon d'Or at the U-20 World Cup in Poland where he reached the final, which ended up losing to Ukraine 3-1.

At 18 he made his debut with the Che team in the Champions League with Albert Celades at the helm of the Valencian team and with Javi Gracia he did not count too much for the then Valencian coach.

The player had a contract until 2022 but the urgencies to discharge the Brazilian Marcos André because of the extra-community place that the South Korean occupied, made Valencia 'give' the player the letter of freedom without any financial compensation for what the player arrives on the island at zero cost, a bargain for the Balearic club.

Now, Kang-in Lee comes to Mallorca for free to reinforce the attack line in which he will coincide with Take Kubo, a player with whom he coincided in lower level tournaments when the Japanese was at Barcelona and the Korean at Valencia. Last season they crossed their paths again when Valencia and Villarreal faced each other, and now they will be teammates with the Majorcan shirt.
