Messi, Neymar Replacement? PSG Explores Kang-in Lee as Creative Option Amid Exits – Report

Paris Saint-Germain is grappling with the high-profile exits of Lionel Messi and the imminent transfer of Neymar Jr. to Al-Hilal. As a result, this could benefit the new arrival Kang-in Lee this 2023-24 season. 

L’Equipe reports that PSG is considering South Korean talent Kang-in Lee as a potential solution in the creative midfield role, leveraging his previous experience as a central midfielder during his stint at RCD Mallorca.

Lee’s versatility on the pitch allows him to be deployed in a creative midfield role. PSG putting Lee in that position could compensate for the absence of new signings in that position. 

The void left by the absence of Messi and Neymar is significant, which is why the Ligue 1 giants had their eyes on Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva. 

Nonetheless, Lee has a golden opportunity if no creative midfielder comes before the Sept. 1 summer transfer window deadline. The 22-year-old generated one key pass in the 0-0 draw against FC Lorient on Saturday at the Parc des Princes. 

Should the former Mallorca star get the nod, he could be dishing the ball to a talented group of forwards that will include Ousmane Dembélé, Kylian Mbappé, and Gonçalo Ramos.
