[골닷컴] Reporter Kim Hyung-joong = Son Heung-min’s Real Madrid signing rumors are rising. At the same time, Son Heung-min’s expected transfer fee is attracting attention in Spain.
On the 31st, Spanish media ‘Pizzajes’ reported “Considering Son Heung-min’s contract until 2025 and the current value, Tottenham will not send Son Heung-min for less than 70 million euros (about 99 billion won) .” He continued, “Heung-Min Son is the most underrated player in the history of the modern Premier League. Although he is in the shadow of teammate Harry Kane, he is one of the best players in the Premier League.”
Son Heung-min has recently been caught on Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti’s radar and there are rumors of a transfer. Real Madrid are reorganizing their squad around Brazilian Vinicius Junior, but still need a versatile striker like Son Heung-min.
Striker Karim Benzema, who won his first Ballon d’Or this year based on his outstanding performances last season, will also turn 36 next year. He maintains the highest level, but if his performance is low, a striker with good scoring ability is needed. A player like Heung-Min Son who can play up front and on the flanks is a golden prize.
The expected transfer fee of 70 million euros is not too difficult for Real Madrid. It is true that Son Heung-min’s worth, which was once more than 100 billion won, is gradually decreasing as he gets older. It is a good choice if you invest that amount and hire a striker who can play a variety of positions.
On the other hand, there are rumors of Son Heung-min’s transfer to different clubs recently. Not only Real Madrid, but also Liverpool. Many European media predict that Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are also clubs that can embrace Son Heung-min.
