After a little scare, PSG appear to be quite optimistic about securing the services of Mallorca forward Kang-In Lee following a disagreement between both clubs regarding how they valued the player earlier this week.

Although some outlets part of the Spanish scene recently suggested a stalled negotiation, renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano reported on Sunday morning that all parties involved are confident about reaching a final agreement.

In a shocking tweet, Romano revealed that "medial tests are already completed," and most importantly that there is a "verbal agreement in place between both clubs." That, just a few hours ago, seemed to be far from becoming a reality.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder, who is under contract at Mallorca through June 2025 is eager to join PSG from the Spanish side this summer. Mallorca, on the other hand, don't want to let him go for a low fee and is looking to recoup €22m from the sale of the talented South Korea international.

The fact that there is a verbal agreement between the two clubs for the arrival of the South Korean in Paris, though, bodes well for a happy ending related to the transfer of the Asian to PSG in the next few days. These types of things are often related to little details such as reaching an agreement on performance-related bonuses, clauses, etc... so it's more about ironing out those final details than anything else at this point if we believe (we do!) Romano.

The only remaining step is for the player to put pen to paper and officially become a member of PSG after both clubs reach and settle on their own particular agreement.

There should be no problem with Kang-In Lee signing his contract, even more knowing that he's represented by superagent Jorge Mendes and the relationship the Portugal businessman holds with PSG and some members of the Parisian club staff such as sporting advisor Luis Campos.
