Jung Woo-young close to joining Stuttgart…’Personal agreement completed + transfer fee negotiations ongoing’

Jung Woo-young (23-Freiburg) is close to a move to Stuttgart.

Germany’s ‘Bild’ reported on the 21st (KST), “Stuttgart want to sign Jung Woo-young. They have already finalized a personal agreement with the player and are only left to negotiate a transfer fee with Freiburg,” Bild reported.

“Several clubs were interested in Jung Woo-young, but the player wanted to go to Stuttgart because he worked with current Stuttgart coach Sebastian Hoeneß at Bayern Munich,” the report added.

Jung Woo-young came up through the ranks of Incheon United’s youth team, Daegungo, before moving to the ‘German giants’ in 2018. He gained experience in the Munich youth ranks before moving up to the second team ahead of the 2018-19 season. Used as an ace in the second team, Jung was often called up to the first team and played in the Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League (UCL).메이저놀이터

His time in Munich came to an end sooner than he expected. He moved to Freiburg in the summer of 2019 in search of playing time. But it wasn’t the ‘utopia’ he had hoped for. Injuries, a change in tactics, and the arrival of a competitor kept him in the second team. In the second half of the season, he went on a six-month loan to his hometown club Munich, where he shone in the second team (1 goal, 8 assists in 15 games) and helped them to the third division championship.

Back to Freiburg. The last three seasons have been a bit of a ‘roller coaster’. He was a rotation player in 2020-21, a starter in 2021-22, and a rotation player in 2022-23. After four years in a Freiburg uniform, it’s hard to say he’s settled down.

The 2022-23 season was even more frustrating. The arrival of Doan Litz and Mikael Gregoric, as well as another tactical change, put a red flag on the competition for a starting spot. He played 26 games in the Bundesliga, but only 638 minutes. Toward the end of the season, he was often subbed in after the 80th minute.

In the end, he decided to leave Freiburg. Jung had two years left on his contract until June 2025. He needed a change of scenery, and is looking to move to Stuttgart, where he narrowly missed out on staying for the 2022-23 season.

Stuttgart is definitely a good option. The coach who coached Jung when he was playing in the Munich second team is now in charge of Stuttgart, so he’ll have no problem fulfilling the demands of a transfer. Plus, he already has a personal agreement in place.

All that remains is to negotiate the transfer fee. According to Germany’s Sky Sports, the transfer fee gap is €2 million. If this is resolved, the transfer will be finalized.
