While Son Heung-min is embroiled in transfer rumors for Turkye Fenerbahce and France’s PSG, it has been claimed that it will be difficult for him to retire from Tottenham due to the extreme competition in the Premier League.
It is claimed that he will go to lower leagues such as the U.S. Major League Soccer (MLS) or the Asian League.

‘Spurs Web’, a British media outlet that reports Tottenham news, reported on June 10, 2024, “Son Heung-min could potentially return to Asia or transfer to the US MLS within 4 to 5 years.”
Britain’s The Hard Tackle also said on the same day, “Son Heung-min will receive many opportunities to transfer to lower leagues in the near future,” and said he is likely to leave Tottenham in a few years.

The Hard Tackle said, “Son Heung-min will devote himself to Tottenham amid rumors of a transfer to Fenerbahce,” and added, “There are rumors that Son Heung-min will leave Tottenham this summer and transfer.
Fenerbahce, home to Jose Mourinho, who led Tottenham in the past, is showing interest.

However, despite this interest, Son Heung-min is still devoted to Tottenham.”

Legend Son Heung-min, who started playing for Tottenham in 2015, is currently in talks with the club about extending his contract.
The contract signed between Son Heung-min and Tottenham expires in June 2025, and includes an option to extend it by one year.

As the contract expiration date is getting closer, Tottenham caused a stir as it was reported that they are considering extending the contract for one more year by activating the extension option rather than signing a new contract with Son Heung-min.

Global sports media ‘The Athletic’ recently reported, “Tottenham plans to activate a one-year extension option, tying Son Heung-min to the club until 2026.”
The media explained, “Son Heung-min has enjoyed the joy of recovering his performance and is essential as a captain,” adding, “Tottenham also plans to activate a one-year extension option, tying Son Heung-min to the club until 2026.”

On the surface, it appears that Tottenham respects Son Heung-min, but in reality, this is not the case.
This is not the news fans wanted.

Fans waiting for news of his mid- to long-term contract renewal interpreted that Tottenham was reluctant to renew a long-term contract due to concerns about Son Heung-min’s declining skills as he entered his 30s.
Son Heung-min, born in 1992, turns 32 this year.

As he enters his 30s, it is known that Tottenham is only trying to activate the one-year extension option rather than renew Son Heung-min’s contract, even though there is only one year left on his contract.
Afterwards, as rumors of a transfer to Fenerbahce circulated, the possibility of signing a new contract arose, but the media predicted that although there was a possibility of Son Heung-min signing a new contract with Tottenham, it would be impossible for him to retire from Tottenham.

Tottenham has previously signed short-term contracts or activated extension options when players who have played for a long time at the club, such as Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, and Hugo Lloris, begin to exceed the age of 30, and transfer them after checking whether they can maintain their skills. allowed.
Lloris, who was the captain just before Son Heung-min, lost his captaincy in the 2023-2024 season and was treated as an invisible person, before moving to LA FC in the US MLS last January.

Son Heung-min is not in a situation where he will be released yet.
Although he is 32 years old, Son Heung-min is still the best striker in the Premier League.

He scored 17 goals and 10 assists in the 2023-24 league season, scoring the most attack points in Tottenham.
Thanks to Son Heung-min’s performance, Tottenham ranked 5th in the Premier League and was able to participate in the UEFA Europa League next season.

However, as Tottenham did not actively pursue a contract extension with Son Heung-min, who played as Tottenham’s ace this season, rumors of Son Heung-min’s transfer began to emerge ahead of the summer transfer window.
Recently, somewhat shocking news was reported that Son Heung-min would leave Tottenham and head to Fenerbahce, a prestigious club in Turkey.

The reason why Son Heung-min is connected to Fenerbahce is because one of his teachers, coach Jose Mourinho, the ‘Special One’, took charge of Fenerbahce.
Fenerbahce officially appointed Mourinho as its new head coach on June 3, 2024.

Coach Mourinho, who was sacked by AS Roma in Italy’s Serie A last January, returned to the field after taking a break by taking charge of Fenerbahce, one of the prestigious Turkic clubs.
Global media ‘Team Talk’ reported on June 5, 2024, “Mourinho plans to recruit Tottenham star Son Heung-mi, whose interest has been sparked due to uncertainty about his contract renewal.”

The media said, “Former Tottenham manager Mourinho wants to make Son Heung-min his first signing after taking charge of Fenerbahce. We know that Mourinho has included Son Heung-min on his list of candidates for summer signings. There is currently no contact between the clubs, but Son Heung-min explained that it is one of the options Fenerbahce is evaluating.

He continued, “Mourinho knows Son Heung-min well because he trained with him for over a year and a half at Tottenham. During this period, Son Heung-min played a key role in the team, scoring 29 goals and 25 assists in 70 games under coach Mourinho. “Son Heung-min was considered a suitable option for Fenerbahce,” he added.
When Son Heung-min was linked to Fenerbahce, led by Mourinho, while showing an ambiguous attitude about renewing his contract, Tottenham began to hastily consider renewing his contract.

British media ‘Give Me Sports’ reported on the 8th that “Tottenham star Son Heung-min is the fans’ favorite player and could sign a new contract to stay at the club.”
They explained: “Son Heung-min has been linked with Fenerbahce, but there is no chance of a deal going through this summer. The silver lining for Tottenham fans is that Son Heung-min plans to be at Tottenham next season and beyond.”

He added, “This means that Son Heung-min can be elevated to stardom above Mauricio Pochettino by the club’s supporters.”
Coach Pochettino is one of the leaders who is still loved by many after leading Tottenham in the past and leading the club to great growth, including advancing to the UEFA Champions League final for the first time in the club’s history.

He also said, “Son Heung-min has been seeking to renew his contract at Tottenham for a while, and as he has turned 32 after spending 9 years at Tottenham, there is a possibility that he will remain at Tottenham for the remainder of his career.” He added, “Son Heung-min’s remaining period can reach 15 years, which is very “It would be an amazing achievement.”

‘Spurs Web’, citing this, also said, “Tottenham fans will like news about Son Heung-min’s future,” and “Give Me Sports ruled out the possibility of Son Heung-min leaving Tottenham this summer, and even said Son Heung-min would spend the remainder of his career at Tottenham. “I insisted that I could send it,” he said.

The media said, “Son Heung-min is the second-longest first-team player at Tottenham after Ben Davis and an influential star who even took on the captaincy a year ago.” He added, “In recent days, he has left Tottenham and said he could reunite with Jose Mourinho at Fenerbahce.” “There were rumors that it existed, but this was quickly discarded,” he explained.

He added, “It is reported that Son Heung-min plans to remain at Tottenham for the next few years,” adding, “It is said that he is likely to sign a new long-term contract with Tottenham.”
However, the media claimed that it would be difficult to see Son Heung-min playing only for Tottenham and then retiring from active duty.

They said: “Son Heung-min is still at his best and there is no doubt he will be at Tottenham for many more years. However, given the constant demands from the top Premier League clubs, it is difficult for players to have a career at their current level of performance. “It is rare to finish it,” he said.

In addition, he predicted that Son Heung-min will leave Tottenham and the Premier League and head to the lower leagues in his later years, saying, “This is why Son Heung-min can return to Asia or transfer to the US MLS in 4 to 5 years.”
The media says that a contract renewal is quite possible, but the recent speculation that he will remain at Tottenham until 2029 is unlikely to come true.
