Jung Sang-bin left Suwon Samsung in January 2022 and transferred to Wolverhampton (England). At the time, he was nicknamed ‘K-Mbappe’ as a top-notch prospect that the K-League was proud of. He knocked on the European stage at an early age while bewitching European scouts.
He was immediately loaned to Grasshoppers (Switzerland). Due to work permit (work visa) problems, a 1 year and 6 month lease was concluded. However, the days that were not easy continued. Due to the presence of injuries, he did not get many opportunities to play in his growing season.
Then in mid-March, he pushed for a move to Minnesota after terminating his lease with Grasshoppers. His transfer fee was 2 million pounds (approximately 3.3 billion won), and the contract period was until 2026, including options. He was also given the number 11 shirt.
As soon as the visa issue is resolved, he is on his way to the game. He came on as a second-half substitute against Chicago Fire and started the previous match against Orland City. He has only one thing left to do.
