Journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed on his Here We Go podcast that Heung-Min Son’s agent change could facilitate a new deal at Tottenham Hotspure, as reported by Spurs Web.

Spurs forward Son has signed with talent agency CAA, the same group that manages commercial deals for his manager Jose Mourinho. CAA also handles the accounts of teammate Dele Alli as well as Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva and James Rodriguez.

Transfer expert Romano claimed CAA has a strong relationship with Spurs’ directors. And he hinted those ties could oil the wheels of a fresh contract for the South Korean.

He said: “Heung-Min Son has new agents now. They have a great relationship with (the) Tottenham board. This is good news for Tottenham (for his contract renewal).” 

Mourinho unconcerned about Son contract

According to the Star, Mourinho has played down concerns over whether Son will sign a new deal.

He told the newspaper: “An impact on Sonny’s future? I don’t know. At a commercial level it will be a big impact because it is a worldwide, very important agency.

“I am not worried about his contract. He has three years of (his) contract, a great relationship with Mr (Daniel) Levy and the people that represent him. Sooner or later it will be resolved.

“I don’t believe there will be a problem. (At) so many clubs there are huge problems to resolve with players who have their contracts in a few months. So three years is a long time.”

Forward worthy of new deal at Tottenham?

The 28-year-old has made a blistering start to the campaign. Son has scored ten goals in only nine games in all competitions, including four in a 5-2 win at Southampton.

The 78-cap international combined with Harry Kane for a ninth goal this season and 29th in total in the 1-0 victory over Burnley at the weekend.

This record draws Son and Kane level with Arsenal greats Thierry Henry and Robert Pires and Manchester City stalwarts Sergio Aguero and David Silva.
