Son Heung Min is in brilliant form in the Premier League and is about to receive a big bonus from Tottenham with a new contract, a new salary.
Son Heung Min is playing increasingly sublimated in the Tottenham shirt. The South Korean striker took all the individual titles awarded by the club last season and continued to shine in the first few rounds of the Premier League.
After the first 5 rounds, Son Heung Min and Calvert Lewin (Everton) are “top scorer” in the Premier League with 7 goals. Tottenham’s No. 7 had a poker shot (scored 4 goals) against Southampton, contributed 2 goals in the 6-1 great win over MU and had 1 goal against West Ham in the last round. In addition, Son Heung Min also has 2 assists in the Premier League.
Thus, the Korean striker has an average record of scoring or assisting 1.8 times / match in the Premier League. This is a desirable number for any player playing in the tournament known as the toughest on the planet.
However, the brilliant form of Son Heung Min made the Tottenham leadership worried because the contract of both sides was only valid for 2 years when this season ended. Currently, the South Korean striker is valued at £ 67.5 million (according to Transfermarkt) and could increase further in the near future. However, that also did not prevent the big players’ interest in Tottenham’s No. 7.
Remember, Son Heung Min is not just valuable on the pitch. According to the latest statistics, the number of Tottenham fans in Korea has surpassed MU and possibly Asia in the coming time thanks to the presence of the striker born in 1992. This is a “fertile” land that All the big Europeans wanted to gain in order to increase their reputation and market share.
To avoid being pushed into a passive position in the event of having to sit at the negotiating table, Tottenham president Daniel Levy plans to keep the Korean striker. According to his Telegraph, “Rooster” is negotiating a contract extension with Son Heung Min with a new salary.
Currently the number of years and salary in the draft contract has not been disclosed, but it will almost certainly not be less than £ 150,000 / week. Song Heung Min is enjoying a salary of £ 110,000 / week at Tottenham.
This move by Daniel Levy shows that the England boss of Tottenham is afraid of appearing “second Eriksen”. The Danish midfielder was once one of the club’s most expensive players, but Tottenham had to sell quickly because he did not want to extend when the contract was only 1 year.
However, if he received a new salary of £ 150,000 / week, although very high for an Asian player, Son Heung Min could not be in the top of the highest-paid star in the Premier League. Son’s salary is only in the form of “gentle village” compared to other superstars. In the top 10 highest-paid players in the Premier League, according to The Sun’s statistics, salaries are from £ 220,000 / week or more. The highest is now Aubameyang at £ 350,000 / week with extra fees at Arsenal.
