“Tottenham will try to avoid the uncertainty of another superstar in the summer transfer market by triggering Son Heung-min’s contract extension clause,” Matt Law, a dedicated Tottenham reporter for the Telegraph, revealed on Nov. 21 (KST).
Tottenham announced the signing of Son almost two years ago ahead of the 2021-22 season. At the time, Spurs announced on their website, “Son Heung-min has signed a new four-year contract. He will now play for Tottenham until 2025,” the club announced on its website.
At the time of the announcement, there were no reports of a contract extension clause between Son and Tottenham. “Son’s existing contract is set to expire at the end of next season, but Tottenham have a clause that allows them to extend his contract for at least one more year,” Matt Law reported.
The clause itself can be triggered by Tottenham, which means that it can be extended without the player’s consent. “This means that Son Heung-min is committed to Tottenham until at least 2026. The clause has not yet been triggered and is unlikely to be triggered immediately, but it is the expectation and intention of Tottenham and Son that it will be.”
Despite recent interest from Saudi Arabian clubs, Tottenham have not triggered the clause. They could have extended his contract to show their intention to keep him.
“Tottenham could wait until the end of the season to officially trigger the clause in Son’s contract,” writes Matt Law. This is because the club feels too comfortable with Son’s future. They don’t need to interfere with him at all,” claiming that Spurs will not trigger the clause for the time being.
What is certain, however, is that the contract extension clause itself will not be triggered before the 2024-25 summer transfer window. This summer, Tottenham sold Harry Kane to Bayern Munich and were forced to sell him with only one year left on his contract.
Spurs are determined to avoid a repeat of Kane’s story. “Tottenham, who were forced to sell Kane to Munich this summer, will not face the same situation with Son Heung-min, who has one year left on his contract. That will be a huge boost for manager Enze Postecoglou.”
Coincidentally, on the same day that reports emerged that Tottenham had a clause in Son’s contract to extend it, there were local reports that Spurs were pushing for a new deal.
Britain’s ’90min’ reported on the 21st (KST), “Tottenham are looking to sign club captain Son Heung-min to a new long-term contract. He has more than 18 months left on his contract until 2025, but we understand the club have decided to extend his deal,” the report said.
“Sources say an agreement is expected by Christmas, but it could be finalized in the coming weeks. The South Korea international is in his ninth season at Tottenham and is sixth on the club’s all-time goalscoring list.”
“Despite turning 31 in the summer, Son has started the 2023-24 season in fine form, scoring a hat-trick in a 5-2 win over Burnley in early September. New manager Postecoglou named Son Heung-min as the club’s new captain ahead of the start of the Premier League (PL) season, replacing Hugo Joris. “Tottenham wanted to check the relationship between Postecoglou and Son before discussing a new contract, and they had a good rapport, so negotiations moved quickly.
While 90min is not a reliable source for Tottenham news, it does seem to be somewhat true that Spurs and Son are in talks over a new contract. 카지노사이트원
If Tottenham are pushing to re-sign the player rather than trigger his extension clause, it’s likely that this will be the last contract the club will sign. He’s already signed through the 2024-25 season, and if he signs an extension for two more years, he’ll be signed through the 2026-27 season. At the end of the 2026-27 season, Son will be 35 years old. Even Son Heung-min can’t defy time
For Tottenham, signing Son to a long-term contract would be the most respectful thing they could do for the club’s legend. It’s not common for a club to offer a player a long-term contract when he’s in his 30s, and it’s a decision they’ll have to make because he’s so important to them.We can also expect to see weekly salary increases. Tanguy Ndombele, who is currently on loan to Galatasaray, is the highest paid player on the team, earning £200,000 per week at Tottenham.
Son Heung-min is reportedly earning around £192,000 (approximately $323 million). At this point, Son’s importance to the team has increased, so it’s likely that he’ll be earning well over £200,000.
If his wages exceed £200,000 a week, it would be the highest in Tottenham’s history. Tottenham once prepared a £400,000 offer for Harry Kane, but Kane refused to accept it. The previous record was £200,000 for Kane and Ndombele.
