The 30-year-old attacker is currently fulfilling his international commitments with South Korea in Qatar. He has played a key role in the Taegeuk Warriors’ qualification for the knockout stages of the tournament.
He has played three games in this FIFA World Cup so far, contributing one goal. Son Heung-min will next lead South Korea against Brazil in a round-of-16 tie at Stadium 974 on December 6.

The Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min is one of the best players in the world his transfer will be a massive addition to the Blancos forward line. Son Heung-min’s transfer will also help Real Madrid to strengthen its presence in the Asian market.
However, signing him won’t be easy as he is a key player for the London outfit. Tottenham are expected to demand a transfer fee of close to €70 million for Son Heung-min. It will be intriguing to see if the Blancos make an approach to complete the Son Heung-min transfer.
