Spurs ace Son Heung-min is switching representation in a move that may delay contract talks
Sportsmail revealed last month that Son was in line for a new deal – news Jose Mourinho confirmed days later.
‘I would love that. Son has three years (including this season) of contract, so it’s not like we are in an extreme situation of everybody being too worried, I think it’s more a question of Son loves it here,’ said the Spurs boss.
‘And I believe that he would like to commit his future to the club for more time. It is the club, and everybody in the club, being totally in love for this player and for this boy, and trying also to make him feel part of the furniture. And, of course, it’s normal that the club tries to go from three to four or five or six, I don’t know, but it’s normal.
Son earns around £110,000-a-week but CAA and Base will know his worth significantly more
‘But it’s a very calm situation because Sonny has three more years of contract. But I wish, he deserves it and the club knows that. And I believe that sooner or later they will, without any pressure, they will arrive into a decision.’
But despite the confidence in Son signing a new deal, the forward’s decision to switch representation could slow down the process, though the expectation remains that he will put pen to paper.
Son currently earns around £110,000 a week but CAA and Base will know his worth significantly north of that figure given his brilliance on the pitch and his importance to their global commercial strategy.
