Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min is now at the centre of interest from European giants Real Madrid, as Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and sporting director Fabio Paratici are given a warning.
The Lowdown: Spurs summer of change?
Indeed, manager Antonio Conte could be about to oversee a real summer of change in N17, not least because a flurry of exits could also occur.
Who does Conte need to sign after Bissouma?
A world class centre-back
There are certain players, like Son, who you would imagine simply aren’t for sale, given just how pivotal they have been for the north Londoners.
However, despite their importance, that isn’t to say that big clubs won’t have been weighing up moves for some of Tottenham’s big-name stars.
The Latest: Real Madrid eye Son move…
Indeed, as per journalist Rudy Galetti in a column for Tribal Football, there has been a development involving Real Madrid and Son.
He claimed that the Galacticos are now targeting a move for the South Korea international, who has ‘all the characteristics’ of a player requested by manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Galetti went on to send a warning to Paratici and Levy, explaining that ‘we dare not imagine’ what Conte would do if both Spurs chiefs negotiate Son’s sale.
The Verdict: Rebuff…
If Real Madrid attempt to lodge any bids for the 29-year-old, it’s safe to say that Spurs should not hesitate in knocking them back.
A crucial player for Conte last season, finishing level with Mohamed Salah for the Premier League Golden Boot, Son also averaged more key passes per 90 than any Tottenham player, whilst finishing 2021/22 as their best overall performer (WhoScored).
The winger undoubtedly earned Alan Hutton’s rave review, with the former Spurs right-back calling Son ‘unplayable’ after his performance in the derby win over Arsenal last month.
