Son Heung Min received the same salary as Kane, stayed at Tottenham until 34 years old?

Tottenham made no secret of its intention to turn Son Heung Min into the team’s monument with a long-term contract with a huge salary.

A source from Fabrizio Romano, a writer of European football, confirmed that the contract renewal negotiations between Tottenham and Son Heung Min are going smoothly. Although the old contract is still valid until 2023, “Rooster” still wants to ensure his future with the Korean striker.

Earlier, in October, Football Insider revealed that Son Heung Min would sign a contract in January 2021, his new salary also increased from £ 140,000 / week to £ 200,000 / week, excluding bonuses (about 6.1 billion), which is equivalent to what Harry Kane is receiving.

In addition, the new contract can help Son Heung Min stick with Tottenham for another 5-6 years, when he was 34 years old. Obviously, “Rooster” does not conceal the intention of turning the Korean striker into a monument of the team.

“There are many positive signals about the contract renewal process. Both sides almost reached an agreement, the new contract can last 5-6 years. Everyone is looking forward to this, Son is also very happy at Tottenham. Everything will be done in a few weeks”, said Fabrizio Romano.

Son Heung Min joined Tottenham in 2015, scoring 98 goals / 247 matches in all competitions. In the 2020/21 season, the Korean striker continued to play well when he contributed 10 goals in the Premier League. The 28-year-old superstar merged with Harry Kane into the best “close parallel” in the history of the tournament. Currently the two have together created 31 goals in the Premier League, the only achievement less than legendary Chelsea duo Frank Lampard – Didier Drogba (36 goals).

In addition to expertise, Son Heung Min also has great commercial value thanks to his reputation spreading throughout the Korean homeland to Asian countries.
