Former Bundesliga professional Heung-Min Son has been targeted by Champions League winners Real Madrid. This reports sports1. Accordingly, Blancos coach Carlo Ancelotti “kept an eye on Son”.
If Real’s advertising were to materialize, a transfer would be possible from a player’s point of view, despite a long-term contract. According to the report, Son is preparing for his “next career step”. After an extension in the summer of 2021, however, the attacker is still tied to Spurs until 2025.
The 30-year-old wants to consider how his career should continue in the coming months. First, the captain of the South Korean national team (104 caps, 34 goals) will take part in the World Cup finals in Qatar with his national team.
Real’s attack is strong with Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema (34), Vinícius Junior (22) and Rodrygo (21). There are also versatile players like Fede Valverde (24) and Lucas Vázquez (31). But with Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio and Mariano Díaz there are also a number of strikers, so rumors of new additions to the offensive around the LaLiga leaders keep circulating.
Son made his breakthrough as a professional at Hamburger SV. In 2013 he moved to Bayer Leverkusen for 12.5 million euros. The 30 million transfer to Tottenham followed two years later. He scored 136 goals in 341 games for Spurs and prepared 76 more goals.
