South American midfielder locked in dispute over wages
The Venezuela midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and the 25-year-old has been linked with a move to England.
Rincon reportedly wants an increase in his wages, but Hamburg manager Oliver Kreuzer appears unwilling to increase the offer.
“I love Hamburger SV. But I will not accept this offer I have received,” said Rincon. “I know all about my value to the market and if we cannot agree, I will have to go.”
Kreuzer said: “Tomas Eduardo Rincon has been handed a good contract offer. I don't have a queasy conscience. Either he is accepting it. Or he does not.”
