The future of Mason Mount at Chelsea is uncertain following the breakdown of contract talks between the two parties.
Despite bringing in highly-rated and costly midfielders, Chelsea are keen on keeping Mason Mount and are in talks to renew his contract.
The England midfielder has 18 months left on his current deal at the club, and will be retained on a new deal if contract renewal talks goes through.
Meanwhile, Chelsea face the task of convincing the England midfielder to renew his contract with the club after making an offer far below the earnings of top players at the club.
Mason Mount has reportedly rejected the offer and the two parties are said to be far from a possible agreement to extend the contract.
In his current deal with the club, Mason Mount earns £80,000 weekly and is asking the club to triple the offer if they want to keep him at the club.
The likes of Raheem Sterling, Mykhailo Mudryk, and Enzo Fernandez are reportedly placed at high wages weekly compared to Mason Mount.
Mason Mount, who rose through the ranks at Chelsea, emerging through the club’s academy, wants a higher wage as other top stars signed by the club.
Mason Mount is reportedly pushing for the wage increment as he believes home-grown players need not be taken for granted in the face of mass recruitment by Todd Boehly.
The faceoff between the England midfielder and Chelsea hierachy will set a stage for an interesting episode in Todd Boehly’s reign at Chelsea.
Meanwhile, there are projections that negotiations between the two parties will resume, but it is evident Mason Mount may not blink on his demand from the club.
Having spent more than £300million on players in January alone, adding up to the £485m in August, Mason Mount will press on with his demands, but it is still unclear how Chelsea will respond when negotiations resume.
Todd Boehly went on an incredible spending spree, bringing high-profile signings in the transfer window.
The American investigator capped his wild spending spree with a record £107m signing of Argentina midfield sensation and World Cup winner, Enzo Fernandez.
After initial faceoff and subsequent breakdown of talks with Benfica, Chelsea resumed talks and reached agreement with Benfica at the death, signing the 21-year-old 2022 World Cup young talent.
Obviously, the signing of Enzo Fernandez, Mykhailo Mudryk will trigger competition in Chelsea’s squad with home-grown talents like Mason Mount.
Mount graduated through the Chelsea academy and went on to win the Champions League with the club and play for England in two major tournaments.
But he’s now unsure of his status at the club after they broke the British transfer record to pay £107million for Enzo Fernandez and spend £89million on Ukraine winter Mykhailo Mudryk.
