Fabrizio Romano says Tottenham player set to sign new contract
Fabrizio Romano has reported that Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min is finally set to sign a new deal. It is claimed by the italian journalist that talks have been going on since December. Now, a new deal is now close. He will receive a higher wage.
Son, who turns 29 in June, has been excellent throughout 2020-21 once again. The South Korea skipper’s future, though, has been up for debate with reports that Harry Kane may look to depart Spurs. However, Romano has delivered an update on Son that will absolutely delight supporters.
The 22-goal attacker is set to pen a new deal. With two years left on his current deal, a new contract will last until at least the summer of 2024. Romano confirms that after six months of talks between the club and Son’s representatives, a deal is close. He will get a longer deal, with a bigger wage.
Getting Son tied down is brilliant work by incoming Tottenham chief Paratici – following Romano claim
Tottenham are expected to be quite busy in the upcoming window this summer, but keeping what they already have will be just as tricky. Managing to tie down Son to a longer deal, then, is a massive plus for Spurs and it might convince others to stay. Perhaps not Kane, though.
It is a good first step made by Fabio Paratici who has joined the club this month as sporting director from Juventus. Son could be the player that takes Tottenham forward, if Kane does end up departing.
