Son Heung-min rejected all Saudi offers Tottenham Legend confirmed

Son has emerged as a world-class player for Tottenham over the past few seasons. Having grown up in Hamburg, Germany, before joining Tottenham in 2015 after playing for Bayer Leverkusen, Son has been a key striker, scoring double digits every season except the first.

In the 2021-2022 season, Son was the first top scorer in the league. In 35 games alone, he scored 23 goals without a penalty, tying with Mohamed Salah as the top scorer. Son was the first Asian player to be crowned top scorer in the Premier League.

Despite his lackluster performance last season, Son, who scored 10 goals last season, has established himself as a full-fledged catcher this season. Since leaving for Bayern Munich, Germany, his teammate Harry Kane has been in charge of most of the team’s goalscoring. He has recorded the most goals scored by his team with 13 goals and six assists in 23 league matches, while displaying his selfless play.

Saudi Arabia plans to increase the value of the league by recruiting Son Heung-min. It plans to recruit Salah and De Bruyne, who represent the Premier League, including Son. Recently, it is known that it is luring Modric, who is somewhat older but has shown constant class, with oil money.

Team Talk also said, “Son’s contract will expire in the summer of 2025. We have only one year left after the end of this season,” adding, “The fear for Son’s future is that this deadly striker is receiving love calls from Saudi Arabia. Other than Son, Casemiro, Kevin De Bruyne, and Mohamed Salah are receiving love calls from Saudi Arabia.”

However, Tottenham does not intend to hand over Son. Reportedly, they started negotiations with Son several weeks ago.

“Tottenham has begun discussions on a new contract with Son Heung-min. It will be concluded in the summer,” said English Football Insider, virtually burying a bone in Tottenham.

“Tottenham has the option to let Son stay for one more year, but miraculously, his contract with Tottenham expires in the summer of 2025. It is understood that the two sides are currently in the process of initial negotiations. A new agreement is expected to be reached at the end of the season,” he said, adding weight to the possibility of Son staying.

“Both Son and Tottenham are focusing on the final race of this season. Tottenham, led by Ange Postecoglou, is competing to advance to the UEFA Champions League next season,” he said, adding that he is focusing first on the remaining schedule.

U.K.’s 90 min also urged Son to renew his contract, saying, “His contract runs until 2025. We need to sign a new contract,” adding, “It is more likely to sell a club mascot than to sell it.”

Give Me Sports of the U.K. also reported that Tottenham and Son are in talks to renew their contracts, adding that Son’s contract will expire next summer. Both sides are discussing a new contract, adding that negotiations are underway to renew his contract.

Against this backdrop, Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge said, “Negotiations are underway. To be honest, Son is a very outstanding player on the field. He is an excellent promotional player, a world-class player, and a key player for Tottenham,” adding, “He has shown great performance as captain since succeeding Harry Kane.” Son is excellent both on and off the field.

“He recently returned from the Asian Cup. Personally, he was very disappointed about the Asian Cup. I don’t think Son has the highest level of relationship with Jurgen Klinsmann. Perhaps this is why it took a while for Son to return,” he said. “He is drawing a lot of attention from Saudi Arabia, but he will be with Tottenham manager Anji Postecoglou. We will be able to sign a better contract by utilizing Saudi offer,” he said, expecting Son to play for Tottenham on better terms than now instead of rejecting Saudi offer.

However, there were also concerns that discussions are still underway even though it has already been three weeks since the negotiations began. Team Talk explained, “It is positive that both sides are still sitting at the negotiation table, but it is worrisome that negotiations have not progressed yet.”

However, there is no need to worry as Chairman Chetdol-Levi decided to renew Son Heung-min’s contract.

According to the media, Tottenham have been extremely reluctant to lose their world-class striker since Harry Kane left for Bayern Munich, and Levy is reportedly ready to reject all Saudi offers this summer.

“When he moved from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 with a transfer fee of just 22 million pounds (about 37.2 billion won), no one would have expected Son Heung-min to be tied for sixth in the club’s all-time scoring list with 159 goals,” the media said. “The 31-year-old Son Heung-min will be recorded as Tottenham’s best player ever after his career in North London.”
