Local media outlets are reporting that Lee’s move to PSG has been confirmed. It is believed that Lee will replace Lionel Messi, who left PSG at the end of last season.
However, there are some who are not so optimistic about the move. While Lee has made the leap to the top of the Spanish Primera Liga (La Liga), it’s virtually impossible for him to immediately replace Messi, the “GOAT” (Greatest of all time).
In fact, some realistic analysts believe that if Lee goes to PSG, he could struggle to compete for a starting spot.
PSG is home to some of the best players in the world, fueled by Middle Eastern ‘oil money’. Unsurprisingly, Lee’s competition for the position is also world-class. His first task is not to replace Messi, but to compete for a starting spot.
According to Spain’s Football Espana, “It is questionable whether Lee can reach a higher level as a player at PSG. PSG has a very poor history of starting young players with a lot of potential. Also, competition for a starting spot at PSG will be fierce. Lee is likely to spend a lot of time on the PSG bench.”
The UK’s The Athletic raised similar concerns.
The outlet wrote, “Lee Kang-in goes to PSG. He’s been compared to Messi, the GOAT. There are expectations that he can replace Messi at PSG. He has amazing dribbling skills, speed and agility. He also has a center of gravity that doesn”t stop him from being tackled. His set-piece ability is also a strong point,” he said. 메이저도메인
However, he also said, “There are concerns about Lee’s transfer to PSG. “PSG will be good for his career. But he won’t get much playing time. He will have to compete with some of the strongest position players in the world.”
