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.

Son Heung Min shocked the Premier League: Going straight to the first title? (Part 1)

Son Heung Min is on his way to becoming a monument at Tottenham. Will the poker hit against Southampton be the start of a journey for him to win a title for the first time for Spurs?

Son Heung Min is not a less talented player, but he can hardly reach the level of Mohamed Salah or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. That is why Son compensates with hard work, and most importantly, simplicity in action.

The main factor that helps Son kick anywhere is because he always practices to develop his basic skills as a whole. He practiced kicking & passing well with both feet, tried to speed up and chose the position without the ball, practiced to control a narrow space and participated in the dispute. Focusing on the basics of the training ground, Son also brings a simple mindset to the game.

Perhaps among the current Premier League strikers, Son is the most direct and simplest player. He passed simply and moved wide around the opponent’s penalty area waiting for his chance to finish without ever extending the ball. In a quick counter-attack, Son’s speed is truly a nightmare for any center-back no matter how fast.

And he also brings a necessary energy source in the defensive front. Son, with Kane since taking up the position at Tottenham, have often made more fouls than defenders, because Spurs’ defense starts from the striker. Son is particularly good at cutting passes, he is the one who cuts the most passes among Tottenham strikers in the Premier League season 2019/20.

Son is fortunate again to come to a club like Tottenham, coach Mauricio Pochettino and his pressing style makes Son more valuable and now Jose Mourinho is even more important to him because of his fast and not colorful style. . Pochettino held Son to stay when he was about to leave for Germany after the bad first season of 2015/16, and Mourinho since taking the lead has not once criticized Son.
