Son Heung-min had arguably his best season yet, netting 23 goals and 9 assists in 35 Premier league games, winning the golden boot along with Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool winger. All 23 of Son’s goals were non-penalty goals, which just makes it that much more impressive.
Back in 2018, Son’s father spoke in a interview saying that he wants his son to always better himself, and that “If you can survive in the best club in the world, that’s world class in my view.” Son has been a Spurs player since 2015, is it time for the next step in his career?
According to reports, specifically Rudy Galetti from TribalFootball.com, Real Madrid are having internal talks about trying to acquire the 29-year-old Premier League star. Real Madrid are in the market for a forward, with Karim Benzema now being 34-years-old, and the Eden Hazard transfer not working out like they planned. Real Madrid were in for
Kylian Mbappé earlier in the summer, but he preferred to stay in Paris, signing a 3 year contract at the Parc des Princes. The other forward they were rumored in for was Erling Haaland, but he chose Pep’s Manchester City as his destination.
Son is valued at $82.50m by Transfermarkt, and has a contract with Tottenham till 2025, so he would certainly be an expensive purchase for Real Madrid, or anyone else that may want the Spurs winger. The question is, does Son think a move is what he needs to do to make that next step in his career, or can he help bring Spurs to glory and help them win a trophy, something that the club has certainly struggled with.
