Heung-min Son has claimed that it would be unfair to discuss a new contract with Tottenham at this time, adding that he is focused on working hard and playing for the team.
Jose Mourinho recently stated the same thing in a press conference (Football London), claiming that it was not the right time to talk about a new contract when people all over the world are losing their jobs.
However, he did add that he thinks the club and Son will sort out a new contract ‘quickly’ once the world is back to normal.
The Telegraph reported earlier this season that Tottenham were confident of tying the winger down to a new deal.
The same publication originally claimed that Spurs were keen on rewarding Son’s improved form with a contract and salary that would match Kane and Lloris.
Transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano then weighed in and added that it was only a matter of time before Son put pen to paper on either a five or six-year deal.
The Standard recently reported that Spurs had decided to put all non-essential contract talks on hold for the time being due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Heung-min Son said (Football London): “I think it’s a bit unfair to speak about a new contract at the moment. I’m focused on my team and working hard as a player in the team. It’s a bit unfair to speak about a new contract.”
