‘Son Heung-min (33-Al-Ittihad)’ Is this a true story?…Tottenham to extend SON for another year

We could see Son Heung-min playing in Saudi Arabia next summer.

“Tottenham are set to activate the option in the contract of their best player, but a brutal sale is possible in 2025,” the UK’s TeamTalk reported on Jan. 1, adding that the club could extend Son’s contract by one year and then release him next summer.

The outlet added: “Spurs are looking to boost their hopes of a fourth-place finish in the league next season as well as their ambitions to lift major trophies. Key to those aspirations will be Tottenham’s best player and captain, Son Heung-min.” “The South Korean superstar has resurfaced with 17 goals in the Premier League. He turns 32 next week and shows no signs of slowing down,” adding that he expects Son to be a key player next season.

However, “Tottenham have held talks with Son over a long-term contract extension but have yet to make a breakthrough. Tottenham are now planning to activate Plan B. Tottenham will trigger the option to extend Son’s contract for only one year and may sell Son, who will turn 33 around this time next year,” analyzing the possibility of a brutal sale next summer.

Tottenham are considering a sale to Saudi Arabia. “While Son is still performing at an elite level, signing a long-term contract for a player of his age may not be the wisest option. Rather, a sale to the Saudis could be an attractive opportunity to generate significant transfer revenue,” the source said, adding, “He may be more willing to accept a higher salary late in life, given that he is one year closer to retirement.” Tottenham could sell Son to Saudi Arabia.

Asia’s top soccer star is one of the most sought-after targets for Saudi Arabia, which has been collecting world-class soccer players with its oil money. Last summer, the Saudis showed interest in signing Son Heung-min and are expected to keep a close eye on his situation this summer.

“If discussions over Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) don’t speed up, Al Ittihad will enter talks with Son to see if he is willing to move to the Middle East,” TeamTalk reported last month.

“Al Ahly have made a big offer for Salah, but work is not progressing at the pace club officials would like,” the outlet said. “With Salah’s future 먹튀검증가이드 uncertain, Al Ahly have begun to evaluate potential alternatives, with South Korean ace Son Heung-min at the top of the list.”

“The club has not yet made formal contact with Son Heung-min, but if the discussions on Salah do not speed up, the club will enter negotiations to see if he is willing to move to the Middle East.”

Son Heung-min has been linked to Saudi Arabia on several occasions, but he has said himself that he is not interested in a move to the kingdom, which has led many fans to dismiss the rumors as mere speculation.

However, it was recently reported that Tottenham would prefer to only trigger a one-year extension option rather than signing Son Heung-min to a long-term contract.

Football Insider quoted a source as saying on January 1, “Son Heung-min will agree a deal with Tottenham. He is out of contract next summer, but the extension will tie him down until 2026 and allow Tottenham to plan for the future,” the publication exclusively reported.

Alan Hutton, who also played for Tottenham, said: “It doesn’t make sense to let Son Heung-min’s contract expire. I think Tottenham put a clause in the contract to protect the club.” “Tottenham will exercise the (contract extension) option. It’s 100 percent. Tottenham will be able to get as much money as he’s worth,” he said, suggesting that the reason Tottenham would exercise the extension option is to get a big transfer fee.

At 32 years old, it’s hard to predict when Son’s performance will decline. Rather than signing him to a new contract, Tottenham would rather trigger the one-year extension first and then sell him to Saudi Arabia next summer for a huge transfer fee.

There’s a good chance that Son Heung-min’s move to Saudi Arabia could become a reality next summer.
