Jose Mourinho has assured Tottenham fans that there are no problems with Heung-min Son’s current contract in North London, set to expire in 2023.
It was reported by the Telegraph that Spurs are confident that the South Korean will put pen to paper on a new deal in the future.
This came after initial claims that the North London club wanted to reward Son’s improved run of form by giving him a wage increase similar to Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris.
Fabrizio Romano even added that it was only a matter of time before a new contract for Heung-min Son was announced, hinting at a five or six-year deal.
However, more recent reports claimed that Spurs had decided to put all non-urgent contract talks on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic, something that Mourinho himself has now reiterated.
Mourinho said in his post-match press conference after Son score against West Brom that now was not the right time, with people losing their jobs all over the world. He added that it would be sorted quickly once the world was normal again.
He said (Football London): “No problem with Son.
“Still two or three years on his contract. Right now with the Covid, it’s not the right time to be talking about new contracts when people are losing their jobs across the world.
“I think when the world is normal again then Son and the club will sort it out quickly.”
