Saudi Arabia and Fulham are talking about the transfer of Aleksandar Mitrović.
Fans of English football will know Mitrovic well. He is a striker from Serbia with a height of 189 cm, and is a striker who stands out for his offensive ability and post-play ability. Despite his solid physicality, he has good footing ability.
After growing up in his home league, in 2013 he moved to Belgian ‘prestigious’ Anderlecht. He immediately adapted to the Belgian league and made a name for himself by scoring double-digit league goals for two consecutive seasons and joined Newcastle United in the 2015-16 season. Immediately established as a starter, he played in 34 league games and left a decent record, such as posting 9 goals and 4 assists, but he could not prevent the team from relegation.메이저놀이터
The league level has dropped, but Mitrovic’s standing has also diminished. In the 2016-17 season, he only made 25 league appearances and scored only 4 goals and 6 assists in offensive points. Mitrović, who was completely out of power in the 2017-18 season, chose to rent to change the situation. The destination is Fulham. He played in 17 league games in the second half and scored 12 goals, sparking a revival and succeeding in a complete transfer prior to the 2018-19 season.
He excelled at Fulham. In the EPL, his scoring power declined, but in the second division, he was truly ‘congratulatory’. In 44 league games in the 2021-22 season, he led the team’s promotion by leaving a huge record of 43 goals and 7 assists. Mitrovic, who achieved the third promotion with Fulham in the first division, broke the prejudice that he was weak in the first division by scoring 14 league goals in the 2022-23 season.
This summer, he was linked to rumors of a transfer to Saudi Arabia. The British media ‘Telegraph’ said, “Saudi Arabia has offered 25.5 million pounds (about 43 billion won) for the recruitment of Mitrovic.” Mitrović wanted to capitalize on the opportunity to significantly increase his salary. However, Fulham turned down the Saudi offer. If he leaves, he wants to protect his team’s power as it will greatly decrease.
However, Mitrovic was unhappy with the decision. The British media ‘Mirror’ reported that “Mitrović was furious with Fulham and reportedly threatened a strike to force a transfer to Saudi Arabia.” The exact reason for his anger is not clear, but it is expected to be because of money. According to the ‘Mirror’, Mitrovic is earning £120,000 a week at Fulham, but Saudi Arabia is known to have offered him three times the amount.
Since then, rumors of a transfer to Saudi Arabia have calmed down, but they have recently rekindled. European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on his social media on the 14th (Korean time), “Al-Hilal is working to revitalize the Mitrovic deal. The deal depends on Fulham’s decision. I want to keep it,” he said.
Leading Italian journalist Nicolo Skira also reported on the 14th, “Conversations are underway between Fulham and Al-Hilal regarding Mitrovic’s transfer. The player has already completed a personal agreement with Saudi Arabia.”
