Jesse Lingard, the 31-year-old football player, is on the verge of finalizing his move to FC Seoul in South Korea. This comes after being without a club for over half of the season. He is set to become the highest-paid player in the K League, with a reported weekly wage of £17,500.
Lingard expressed initial skepticism about the move but has since committed to the transfer. There are discussions about the need to give Lingard time to adapt, considering his recent lack of playing time. Lingard was seen at the airport ready to fly to South Korea, where he received a warm welcome from fans and a unique gift.
Despite his time away from the game, he is gearing up to compete against top players in the Premier League, with high expectations surrounding his performances. His move to Seoul is set to earn him £910,000 annually, and he had also received offers from numerous other clubs around the world, including Serie A side, Lazio.
