“I’d rather sell the club mascot than lose SON!” Why Tottenham want to keep Son Heung-min

Son Heung-min is a player Tottenham can’t help but love. His influence is already at the highest level in the team.

On September 23, 90min in the UK reported that “Tottenham have made great strides this year, but they still need to refine their squad and decide who stays and who goes”. 90min categorized the players as keep, sell, loan, or release.

Son Heung-min was unsurprisingly listed as a retention. ‘Tottenham are more likely to sell their mascot, Chippy Cockerell, than captain Son Heung-min,’ 90min said. He needs to sign a new deal before his contract expires in 2025,” and that Spurs have no plans to sell him.

Tottenham’s desire to re-sign Son Heung-min has been in the news for months now. As early as last September, it was reported that Tottenham had begun contract talks with Son Heung-min, and recently, Football Insider reported that ‘Tottenham will discuss a new contract with Son Heung-min this summer. Informal discussions are also underway with Son to confirm his interest,” explaining that the player and the club are already in talks.

The UK’s CutOffside also reports that ‘This summer will be one of the most important in Tottenham’s recent history, with the club potentially having to fight off Saudi interest in Son Heung-min. Son has already proven himself to be Tottenham’s ace and the centerpiece of the Enze Postecoglou era. He has spearheaded Tottenham’s attack since the departure of Harry Kane, and the Saudis will make a huge offer to bring him back,” the report said.

‘The fact that his contract expires in 2025 and the fact that he will be 32 years old would also make a lot of sense for the club’s board to cash in on him. However, there is a belief that Son is happy at Tottenham and will sign an extension, according to reports. After seeing Kane leave the club last summer, the thought of losing Son would be devastating for all Spurs fans. ‘Son is a very important player for the development of the team, so we have to consider his importance,’ he said, emphasizing that Spurs should not let him go.

Tottenham’s love affair with Son Heung-min continues. On March 23, the British publication GiveMeSports reported that Tottenham are in talks with Son Heung-min about a new contract.

‘Son Heung-min is still in contract talks with the club. Tottenham will have to make a decision in the upcoming summer transfer window. If they don’t sign him, he will leave the club for free in 2025. If they don’t, they may have to consider cashing in on the player through a transfer. However, Enze Postecoglou and Spurs are likely to be desperate to extend his contract given his importance to the club.

Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridges added: “He’s great on the pitch, but he’s also an ambassador for the club around the world. He’s obviously the heart of the team and he’s been a great captain, second only to Harry Kane,” explaining why Tottenham will want to keep him.

Tottenham have no plans to let go of their mascot. It will be interesting to see what level of renewal Tottenham will offer Son this summer.
