Why do you keep doing that when Son Heung-min says he won’t go… Saudi Arabia prepares 3.4 trillion won, and it’s useless temptation again

January 22, 2024 | by

Saudi Arabian clubs are preparing to target the big stars of the Premier League (PL) once again.

Ben Jacobs, an expert on the European transfer market who works for CBS Sports in the U.S., said on the 21st (Korea time), “This summer Saudi clubs will spend 2 billion pounds (about 3.398 trillion won) across the league, including transfer fees, annual salaries, and agent costs. Saudi clubs spent 750 million pounds (about 1.2735 trillion won) just for last summer’s transfer fee,” predicting that Saudi clubs will also be active in the transfer market in the summer of 2024.

Currently, the most sought-after players by Saudi clubs based on massive funds were PL superstars Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah. Some Saudi clubs are already seeking to recruit De Bruyne.

“Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal have already approached De Breiner’s camp and expressed their interest,” Jacobs said. “If Manchester City accepts the offer, it will pay more than 100 million pounds. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is still known to want De Breiner’s contract extended.”

Salah was also the most wanted player by Saudi clubs last summer, but the transfer was not made in the end. Salah is expected to go to Saudi Arabia one day, but he predicted that it would be early in 2024 because he had just renewed his contract with Liverpool.

Son Heung-min is the second most sought-after big name after the two players. Jacobs said, “We will also approach Tottenham captain Son Heung-min, who was always on the list in 2024. Son Heung-min flatly refused to move to Saudi Arabia last summer. He will be a very difficult target to secure, but so did Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Both finally accepted the move to Saudi Arabia.”

Saudi teams were interested in the summer of 2023, but Son ended the rumor by making remarks that reassured the entire nation. “I’m not ready to go there yet. I think PL is good and there is a lot of work to do,” Son said. Didn’t Sung-yong hyung (Ki) say this once? “The captain of the Republic of Korea does not go to China?” To me, money is not important right now. The pride of playing soccer that I like and the fact that 헤라카지노 I play in the league that I like are important. I still have a lot of homework to do in the PL. I think fans of my team will like it. I will go back and prepare well,” he said, expressing himself that he would remain at Tottenham without hesitation.

So far, the idea is not expected to change and Tottenham will not send Son Heung-min to Saudi Arabia.
