Stan Collymore would not be surprised if Bayern Munich came in for Son Heung-min in the summer, insisting that Tottenham could sell the forward for a cut-price fee.
There has been plenty of speculation over Harry Kane’s future over the last couple of months, with Bayern Munich and Manchester United being mooted as potential destinations for the England captain (Sky Sports).
The Telegraph reported last week that even if the 29-year-old does not sign a new deal with Tottenham, Daniel Levy is expected to demand £100m for his services in the summer (Telegraph).
Collymore has now suggested that Kane’s strike partner, Son, could also attract plenty of interest in the next transfer window.
The former Liverpool star claimed that the Lilywhites might allow the former Bayer Leverkusen man leave for a fee of around £35m since he will be down to the final two years of his contract in June.
Collymore wrote in his column for CaughtOffSide: “On the subject of Son – he came to the Premier League from Germany and I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up back there.
“I know Bayern Munich have Sadio Mane, who obviously plays in the same position, but with just two years left on Son’s deal, it’s unlikely Spurs would let him go for free, and at the age of 31 come the summer, it’s a given they’re not going to be able to demand £70m plus, so for a fee half that, you’d think Bayern would at least enquire.
“France is another league I could see him going to. I’m sure Paris Saint-Germain would take him. He’s a Premier League-proven quality player who has a great reputation for being a good professional. He never causes any trouble and he’s a huge star in Asia, so he would certainly tick a lot of boxes.
“If he did leave Spurs, I couldn’t really imagine him staying in the Premier League.
“I’m not sure he feels he has anything left to prove to England and although he’d want trophies, the same as every player, you’d think it’s very unlikely that Man United and Man City would move for him considering how many wide-men they both already have on their books.
“And obviously given the rivalry Chelsea and Arsenal both have with Spurs, a move to either of those is probably out of the question too.”
Spurs Web Opinion
It is utterly ridiculous to suggest that Levy would consider selling Son for £35m when the South Korean has two years left on his contract.
Son has not hit his usual heights this season but I do not think Tottenham would be tempted to cash in on the 30-year-old unless they receive a substantial offer of around £100m.
