NUNO TOLD ‘BUILD TEAM AROUND SON’
New Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo has been told to build him team around South Korea national team skipper Son Heung-Min if star player Harry Kane leaves the club this summer. Nuno was told to build his team around the South Korea player by former Leeds United and Manchester City right-back Danny Mills in a chat with Football Insider.
Spurs striker Kane is attracting the interest of Manchester City and Manchester United and it's not certain if the England international skipper will stay at the North London club beyond this summer. Various reports claimed that Manchester City had a bid of £100m turned down by Spurs who are holding on for a lot more than that. The bid for the Englishman was reported last month by several trusted media outlets.
Kane and South Korea player Son are undoubtedly the top two stars at Spurs. While Kane has been the subject of interest from other Premier League teams, Son has not been linked with a move away from the club despite having two years left on his current deal. It has been reported that Spurs are in talks to extend his contract.
Spurs are ready to offer the South Korean international a three-year contract extension that will take him to 2026 at the club. Son has already told new manager Nuno that he can count on him for the new season in what's a big boost for Spurs as pointed out by Mills. According to him, the news of Son focusing on the new managerial regime at Spurs is a welcomed development and that the manager can build his team around him in case Kane leaves. Mills says South Korea national team star Son would be perfect for the role if Nuno decides to build his team around him as he has great work ethic and real quality.
