Saudi Arabia’s prestigious Al Ittihad, which was once evaluated as a K-League killer, has recruited another world star. The main character is N’Golo Kante.스포츠토토
Fabrizio Romano, a transfer reporter specializing in the transfer market, said on social media that Kante’s transfer to Al Ittihad is imminent, and that the transfer will be officially announced soon after undergoing a medical test. Kante is known to receive 200 million euros (about 280 billion won) from Al Ittihad for two years.
Kante has been rated as one of the best defensive midfielders in the English Premier League in recent decades. He is very famous for his play that breaks the brunt of the opponent’s attack in the midfield and converts it into an attack with his tremendous amount of activity and clever football intelligence.
It’s been more than 10 years, but Al Ittihad, which is well known to Korean soccer fans as a team that once showed a strong side when meeting only K-League clubs, was a hot topic for signing a superstar even before the Kante transfer rumor. Karim Benzema, who played for Real Madrid, wore an Al Ittihad shirt. After Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer to Al Nasr last winter, attention is focusing on how far the phenomenon of superstars forming the Saudi Arabian rush will continue.
