Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham Hotspur) is positive about signing a new contract. There’s still a lot to talk about with Tottenham, but the two sides are in positive communication. If the extension option is exercised, his salary could increase.
The Telegraph, a British media outlet, reported on April 22 that “Tottenham are preparing to trigger Son’s extension option. Heung-min’s contract ends after one year, but we understand he has an option to extend it for at least another year. That means he could play for Tottenham until at least 2026. The option has not yet been exercised, but both Tottenham and Son believe it will be,” the report said.
Following the Telegraph, British outlet 90min also reported that “Tottenham are looking to tie down the club’s new captain Son Heung-min to a long-term deal. Spurs are expected to reach an agreement before Christmas, according to sources. A deal could be finalized in the coming weeks,” and was optimistic about the re-signing.
According to local reports, Son currently earns £210,000 (approximately $346 million) per week. In annualized terms, that’s around 19 billion won. However, given that Harry Kane was on £200,000 before leaving for Bayern Munich, it’s possible that he could be on a basic £190,000 with all options triggered.
Tottenham have a tight wage structure under ‘cheapskate’ chairman Daniel Levy. Prior to Kane’s re-signing, the highest weekly wage at Tottenham was £100,000 (approximately $164.33 million). However, they were unable to let go of a key player due to wage issues and had to increase the salary cap to £150,000 and £200,000 to keep him.
Kane left Tottenham at the end of the summer. Tottenham lost a franchise star who had been with them since their youth days, but Son Heung-min has picked up the baton and is leading them into a new era. He’s a player of Kane’s caliber, as he broke the Premier League’s all-time goalscoring record with Kane, became the first Asian to score in the Premier League, and more. 스포츠토토
When Kane was about to leave for Bayern Munich, Tottenham offered him a new contract worth more than £200,000 a week. The deal fell through when Kane decided to move on, but it could be used to re-sign Son Heung-min. Of course, Tottenham are likely to go for a base wage of £200,000 per week with an option to add more.
Tottenham are really enjoying the new era under their captain. Tottenham have announced their new captain ahead of the start of the 2023-24 Premier League season. “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Son Heung-min as the club’s new captain. He takes over the captain’s armband from Yoris. Maddison and Romero have been named vice-captains,” the club announced.
“We needed to create a new atmosphere in the locker room,” said head coach Enzo Postecoglou. “We needed a new atmosphere in the locker room, and we decided that Son Heung-min should be the captain next season,” he said in a team meeting. “He’s already shown great leadership on and off the field. He was the ideal choice for our team captain. Influence in the locker room
