Mason Mount appears to be in for a pivotal summer for his football career due to a contract dispute with Chelsea and interest from numerous Premier League clubs in making a move for him. The 24-year-current old’s contract has 18 months left, and the first round of negotiations for an extension was supposed to start before the World Cup.
Negotiations, however, rapidly stalled because Mount and the club had quite different demands. Hill was hoping for a comparable compensation package after seeing Reece James and Armando Broja sign new lucrative contracts, but Chelsea under Todd Boehly no longer operates that way.
Instead, long-term agreements with pay that is less than what was provided during Roman Abramovich’s rule. Conflicts about a pay package led to negotiations.
While talks are now scheduled to restart at the end of the current campaign, the January transfer window quickly took precedence, leaving Mount with a crucial few months to justify his contract demands while wearing a Chelsea jersey.
His uncertain future in west London attracted a lot of attention from clubs both in England and overseas. Liverpool, Manchester United, and most recently Manchester City have all been mentioned as potential Premier League suitors for the 24-year-old.
Similar to the Blues, Jurgen Klopp’s team will need to completely rebuild their midfield in the upcoming transfer windows. Steve McManaman, a former Reds winger, has been talking about Mount’s situation at Chelsea and thinks the England international would quit west London if he doesn’t get his way.
If you’re Mason Mount, you’ll want to participate in every game, and if you find yourself in a precarious situation because so many new players have been added all around you, you’ll want to know what will happen to your future.
I don’t know how much Mason Mount would cost, but I think Liverpool could afford to sign two good midfielders this summer because I honestly think they have the money.
