Incheon Daegan’s midfielder Jung Woo-young is on the verge of joining Bayern Munich according to reports from Korean Press.
Bayern Munich is Germany’s most prestigious club and has been in the Bundesliga for the past five consecutive seasons. Bayern Munich holds the Bundesliga (27 times), the German Football Association (DFB) – Pocal (18 times) and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League.
Bayern Munich is reported to have paid attention to Jeong Woo-young’s potential. Chung Woo-young has steadily raised his name to national team by age, and his team is performing well. Jung Woo-young is a midfielder, and in the first half of the K-League junior A group, he played in 7 games and scored seven goals.
Bayern Munich is reported to have paid a transfer fee of 700,000 euros (880 million won) to Incheon and promised a salary of 200,000 euros (250 million won) to Chung Woo-young.
However, Jung Woo-young, who is not yet 18, is expected to wear the uniform of Bayern Munich in January next year due to the rules of the International Football Federation (FIFA), which prohibits the transfer of players under the age of 18.
Bayern Munich expects Chung Woo-young to grow and be like his comparison, Tottenham’s Son Heung-min . Son Heung-min has played in Hamburg’s first division since 18 and moved to Leverkusen and England to Tottenham.
Son Heung-min moved to England with a transfer fee of 22 million pounds (31.9 billion won), while Hamburg and Leverkusen made little profit.
