Tottenham icon tips Heung-Min Son to consider future if Harry Kane lands transfer
Jurgen Klinsmann has told Sky Sports that Heung-Min Son could reconsider his future at Tottenham Hotspur should Daniel accept Harry Kane’s transfer request.
Levy is reluctant to sell Kane to Chelsea as the two clubs have a fractured relationship. The Spurs Chairman would also prefer to not sell to Manchester United after losing Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov to the Old Trafford side in 2006 and 2008.
Klinsmann believes Son is likely to be one of a number of Tottenham players to review their situations should Kane leave. The South Korea international has long been in a stalemate with the north London side over a potential new contract.
“If Harry leaves then you have a problem because maybe Son says: ‘Hang on, I might move on as well then’,” Klinsmann said.
“The most important path now is [for Spurs] to sit down with Harry, discuss the situation and lay out how he can continue his career with Spurs, how the roster will look for next season to make the squad even stronger.”
Tottenham were set to hand Son a new long-term contract in October, per The Athletic, that would see the 28-year-old become one of the club’s top-earners.
However, negotiations have continued, although the forward was still expected to sign a new deal prior to news breaking of Kane’s desire to leave.
TBR”s view: Tottenham face Son battle
Kane leaving Tottenham would likely see others reconsider their futures in north London, given the England captain’s importance to the side.
Son would presumably be one of those, having also proven key to Spurs’ efforts and the delay in the announcement of a new contract.
Whoever Levy now appoints to replace Jose Mourinho will obviously want both Kane and Son at the club. So, keeping hold of the former may prove key to retaining the latter, like Klinsmann expects, as Spurs face a battle if not.
