Tottenham captain Heung-min Son is ‘generating great interest’ from La Liga giants Real Madrid.
That is according to a report in the Spanish outlet Fichajes, which claims that the Spanish giants are ‘closely monitoring’ his progress at Spurs.
His versatility on the pitch, playing mainly as a left winger has made him a favourite within the Real Madrid hierarchy as rumours of a ‘possible move’ to Madrid ‘gains strength’.
Son’s contract with Tottenham expires in 2025 but there have been recent reports suggesting that Tottenham are set to start talks with the South Korean to extend his contract.
It has been claimed that Spurs will trigger the clause of an initial one-year contract extension followed by an attractive long-term deal which will see his salary substantially increase.
Son has stepped up his game since being named the captain of the team by the manager and has already scored 5 goals in 6 games including a hat-trick against Burnley and a brace against Arsenal.
He has been one of the club’s best players over the years and even though he had a difficult campaign last season, he looks to be back to his best and is enjoying playing under Ange Postecoglou.
But all of that usually does not matter when a club of Real Madrid’s stature comes for you. The Tottenham fan favourite’s head could be tilted if the European giants decide to make a move for him in the summer.
He has been at the North London club since 2015 and has racked up 150 goals and 80 assists in 379 games across all competitions.
