“Captain” Son Heung-min (32) is expected to stay at Tottenham Hotspur despite Saudi Arabia’s offer. He has already announced his decision to stay with his teammates.

“Tottenham star Son Heung-min told his friends he would reject a ‘huge’ offer,” the British Football Insider reported on Sunday. Sources said Son is satisfied with the club. “A formal contract negotiation will take place at the appropriate time.”

South Korean captain Son Heung-min is also a top star at Tottenham. He has been accompanied for nine seasons since joining Tottenham in the summer of 2015. Although he was rumored to be a transfer based on his outstanding performance, he expressed his loyalty by renewing his contracts twice in 2018 and 2021.

It is now difficult to explain Tottenham without Son Heung-min. In his first season as Tottenham, he struggled to adjust and even pushed for a return to the Bundesliga, but he began to spread his wings from 2016-2017 season.

Son Heung-min created a sensation by collaborating with Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane to form the DESK line. He became a world-class striker by scoring double digits in the Premier League for seven consecutive seasons until last season. Tottenham also had a prosperous career under Mauricio Pochettino, ranking second in the Premier League and second in the UEFA Champions League.

Son Heung-min has become a living legend of Tottenham. He grabbed the top scorer with 23 goals and seven assists in the 2021-2022 season, and has the most joint goals scored with Kane in a total of 47 goals in the PL. Son has scored 115 goals in the PL alone so far, ranking third in Tottenham’s all-time goals and 23rd in the PL history.

Son Heung-min, who is entering his 10th year as a Spurs midfielder, was even handed the captain’s armband by newly appointed coach Enzi Postecoglou ahead of the upcoming season. Despite being away for a while at the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup, Son has scored 12 goals and six assists in the league, displaying a captaincy style.

Naturally, Tottenham wants to continue with Son. The two sides have already discussed renewing their contracts and are expected to set up a negotiating table in earnest after the end of this season.

However, Saudi Arabia, which is armed with oil money, is also targeting Son. Notably, the Al-Tihadist, who sent him a love call last summer, is reportedly dreaming of scouting both Son and Mohamed Salah (Liverpool).

It is certainly an opportunity for both Tottenham and Son to tap into huge amounts of money. Last year, RT Hard also offered 60 million euros in transfer fees and 30 million euros in annual salary to recruit Son. It must be a temptation that is hard to resist.

However, Son is only looking to renew his contract with Tottenham. Football Insider stated, “According to sources, Son is happy in the PL and still feels like he is on the cusp of his career. He has told his teammates that he will reject the ‘giant’ transfer offer.” 토토사이트

In fact, Son said that there is something more important than what he can get in Saudi Arabia. “If I wanted to go to Saudi Arabia, I wouldn’t be here now. I love soccer. Money is important, but playing in the PL is my dream,” Son said. “Playing in your favorite league is important along with pride in soccer.”

Now, Son intends to sign a de facto lifetime contract with Tottenham. Football Insider said that Tottenham has not yet sent an official offer, but added, “Son is satisfied with the Tottenham project under Postecoglou. He and Tottenham are confident of a renewal agreement.”
