Mason Mount’s contract with Chelsea is on hold


Mason Mount and Chelsea negotiations regarding a new contract at Stamford Bridge is on hold until the summer.

Chelsea, whose terrible season took another blow with Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Southampton, are still keen to sign a new contract with the England star, whose current contract expires in the summer of 2024.

The Blues have allegedly submitted multiple proposals but have unable to strike a deal with Mount, who is still one of the club’s lowest paid players.

The England international is in a view to want to more than increase his weekly wage of £80,000, putting him on pace with the club’s other senior players and newcomers.

This summer, it was estimated that Mount makes around a fraction of what Raheem Sterling gets each week.

The midfielder’s contract predicament has subsequently drawn a slew of suitors ahead of the summer transfer season, with Liverpool showing special interest.

Chelsea have suspended discussions with Mason Mount in order to focus on results between now and the conclusion of the season, despite their desire to ensure Mount’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge.

This move may give Liverpool – and any other interested parties – an advantage in their pursuit of the 24-year-old.

Graham Potter’s team are now 10th in the Premier League and are in danger of losing out on European competition entirely next season.

Chelsea lost by 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter against Borussia Dortmund. Also, the may be out from the competition at the beginning of next month.

Mount’s contract will be up in 12 months when Chelsea reopens contract discussions at the end of the season.

He might follow in the footsteps of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, who both played out the final year of their contracts in order to depart Stamford Bridge on free transfers.

Christensen joined Barcelona, while Rudiger joined La Liga and Champions League champions Real Madrid.

Moreover, Todd Boehly spent about £600 million in his first two transfer windows as Potter’s manager, overhauling the team with the likes of Enzo Fernandez, Mykhailo Mudryk, Noni Madueke, and Benoit Badiashile in January.

When questioned about Mount’s contract issue earlier this month, Potter remarked, ‘It’s always tricky, there’s always negotiating. It’s best if I leave it up to Mason and the club.

‘It is the best approach to deal with it. He is a pleasure to deal with, in my opinion. He is a vital member of our team. I’m hoping it may fix fast and soon.’
