Real Madrid linked with Heung-min Son

When it comes to the transfer market, Real Madrid are simply one of the best in the business.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Real Madrid are linked with Tottenham forward Heung-min Son.

Tottenham spent 30 million euros to sign the South Korea international from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2015. The 28-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.

The 28-year-old is considered to be the best football player in South Korea. His record for South Korea is impressive. Son has scored 26 goals in 89 matches for South Korea at senior level.

His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

Zinedine Zidane wants to sign a new forward and Son is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a long term admirer of Son and believes he can get the most out of the South Korea international.

Real are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

Heung-min Son is a dynamic forward, who possesses good technical skills and ball control. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Zidane’s side.

The South Korea international will offer the Real Madrid boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.

According to the report, “Tottenham star Heung-min Son is open to moving to Real Madrid. Okdiario says Son is a top Real target as a result of his electric form this season. It’s claimed he ‘would consider’ a move to the Bernabeu if they guaranteed him superstar status in Zinedine Zidane’s attack. Real, for their part, believe Son could become the next Cristiano Ronaldo due to his potent goal threat on the left wing of Spurs’ attack. The South Korea international has been in stunning form this season, scoring 12 goals from 16 Premier League matches. And he’s now on the La Liga giants’ radar, alongside Kylian Mbappe (PSG) and Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund).”


Real will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Tottenham to the negotiating table. The Spanish giants have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.

Heung-min Son ideal fit for Real Madrid?

The forward is in the peak of his career right now and he might want to prove his quality in the La Liga if an opportunity comes his way.

Signing the 28-year-old would be a masterstroke from Zinedine Zidane.

A forward of Son’s ceiling will be a massive addition to Real Madrid squad as he will not only improve the overall quality of Zidane’s starting XI but also add some stability and variety to his attacking department.

How strong that interest is and whether Real Madrid will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
