Son has endured a difficult start to the 2022/23 season at club level, but remains one of world football’s most feared forwards and placed 11th for the 2022 Ballon d’Or.

Prior to the start of his 2021/22 Premier League Golden Boot-winning campaign, the South Korean signed a new contract in north London running until 2025.

But German outlet Sport1 reported this week that he is considering a new challenge in his career and that he was being watched closely by Real Madrid, while Bayern Munich and PSG were also touted as potential destinations.

However, 90min understands that even if Son were to want out of Spurs, the club would not consider his departure for another couple of years at least


The contract he penned last year reflected both his overall importance to the club and his lofty standing in the game.

Furthermore, sources have told 90min that Real Madrid are playing down links to Son. Club president Florentino Perez recently asserted that they already have two future Ballon d’Or winners who play on the wing on their books in Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, while Kylian Mbappe continues to be linked with an eventual move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Meanwhile, 90min reported earlier this week that Spurs remain confident that Harry Kane will sign a new long-term contract. His current deal expires in 2024 and Bayern Munich are interested in his services.

Son not concerned by poor run of form.


Son Heung-min has vowed he will become a better player for the poor run of form he is currently enduring.

Tottenham have made an unbeaten start to the season, most recently beating Marseille 2-0 on their return to the Champions League, but last year’s star forward Son is yet to score in seven matches.

Manager Antonio Conte has continued to back the South Korea international in his starting XI and Son himself has claimed his poor run is down to bad luck and finishing.

He said: “This is going to make me stronger. This is something I can see will be an improvement because I still have a lot of space for improvement. As a team and as an individual as well. Most important is that we are doing well as a team. I’ll do everything the team needs.

“If I’m honest, if I wasn’t getting chances in the game I would be worried but I’m still getting chances. In some games, there have been unlucky moments. In some games, it has been a bad finish.

“In some games I’m really frustrated because if I have some massive chances and the ball doesn’t go in. It makes me just laugh. But I am not worried about it because the team and the staff and all the fans are helping me.

“I think if I score one the confidence will be back and I hope I can go on and score more goals.”

Son has an excellent record against upcoming opponents Manchester City, scoring once and setting up two more goals in Spurs’ pair of victories against the Premier League champions last season. However, he remains more focused on delivering his part in a good team performance.

“Just because I have a good record against them doesn’t mean I’ll do something great or have magical moments,” Son added. “It doesn’t mean anything. Saturday is a massive game against one of the best teams in the world so we need to prepare for the game really well.

“I’ll do what the team needs. This is my aim. It will be a really difficult game and we are short of time to recover. It’s really important we recover well. Good sleep, good eating. We have to be ready for a big battle.”

Tottenham’s trip to Manchester City on Saturday could be postponed following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.




Tottenham’s lack of creativity triggers Brighton defeat โ€“ Report


Despite this, they managed to keep Spurs at arm’s length throughout.

Tottenham recent poor run of Premier League form continued on Sunday night, as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat away at relegation threatened Brighton.

Since ‘kickstarting their title bid’ with a fine 2-0 victory over Manchester City back in November, Spurs have won just three of their subsequent 11 league games.

Throughout this period, a common theme has been a frightening lack of creativity and nowhere was this more evident than against the Seagulls this weekend.


Going into the game, Brighton were perched perilously close to the drop zone.

After going ahead 17 minutes in, as a result of fine team move involving Alexis Mac Allister, Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard, Graeme Potter’s charges retreated into a well organised 5-4-1 out of possession.

In doing this, they were essentially challenging the opponents to break them down, a task that was well beyond Tottenham’s capabilities on Sunday. Spurs registered just one shot in the entire first half – a scrappy effort pulled wide by Steven Bergwijn – despite dominating possession. It was turgid stuff.

Things were not much better after the break either. Although the second half saw Spurs rack up seven attempts on goal – the exact same as their 17th placed opponents – they never looked like converting.

Saying that, when they are chasing a lead, Tottenham are often tragic to watch.


This trend continued against Brighton as they lacked coherence, consistency and any discernible plan or patterns of play. If Spurs had prepared in training for the unthinkable possibility of going behind in a game of football, it did not look like it.

Mourinho’s selection did not help their case either. The team was packed full of players lacking quality on the ball.

Lined up to 3-4-3, wing-backs Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies contributed next to nothing in the attacking phase, while Matt Doherty watched on from the sidelines.


Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, for all of his destructive brilliance, was also ill-suited to the task at hand. What Spurs needed was someone capable of picking the Brighton lock.

Up front, Gareth Bale was given a run out despite his recent patchy form. It was another nothing display from the forward who is increasingly looking like a signing fuelled by doe-eyed nostalgia, rather than fiscal or footballing sense.

That brings us to the third reason for Tottenham’s creative dirge – the absence of Harry Kane.

Just as Leicester’s reliance on another mercurial English striker was exposed earlier on Sunday, the devastating impact that Kane’s absence could have on Spurs over the next few weeks was laid bare against Brighton.


Much has been written about Kane’s development into one of country’s best creators this season, but perhaps the best endorsement of his ridiculous influence came in the form on his side’s stodgy display without him.

The England captain has been directly involved in 68% of Tottenham’s Premier League goals this season, more than any other player in the division, and it is becoming increasingly clear that his personal brilliance may have been papering over cracks in Spurs’ flawed approach earlier on in the season.



Ahead of EPL return, Heung Min Son lifts lid on ‘military training’

Tottenham star Heung-min Son has lifted the lid on his recent military service.


Son utilised the period of no play in England to complete his mandatory national service in the South Korean Military Corps, where he was reportedly awarded South Korea’s Pilsung Prize.

The 27-year-old – who has made a full recovery from a broken arm since football was put on pause – was provided a special exemption from mandatory 21-month military service when he led South Korea to glory in the Asian Games in 2018.

Now, with the return of Premier League football on the horizon and Spurs back in training, Son says he enjoyed the three-week spell of basic training.

“It was a good experience,” Son told the club’s Twitter.


“On the first days no one knew each other so it was a bit weird, but soon we got to know each other. You have to spend every day together, there were ten people in one room so we got very close.

“We were working together, helping each other. In the first days the other guys couldn’t even speak to me but by the end we were joking and enjoying together.”
