Mason Mount’s future at Chelsea is now in doubt after contract talks were halted.
Mount has emerged as one of Stamford Bridge’s most important players in recent seasons, and Graham Potter can completely rely on him.
Mount’s current contract with the Blues expires in 2024, and there has been some speculation in the media that the club is having difficulties agreeing on a new contract with the midfielder.
According to the Daily Mail, the Blues offered Mount a new contract, which he declined because the wages were lower than those offered to some of the new recruits.
According to reports, the midfielder wants to be paid the same as Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva, and Kalidou Koulibaly at the club.
Mason Mount’s future at Chelsea is in doubt due to a contract dispute
According to Iomie Stanley, despite reports that Mason Mount’s contract extension has been stalled, the English midfielder will undoubtedly remain at Stamford Bridge.
“Despite some rumors, there is little doubt that Mason Mount will sign a new contract at the Bridge,” he said.
“It’s still not done but it’s under discussion, and for Chelsea it’s seen as an important priority to extend Mount’s deal – he is one of the most important players at the club right now.
‘I am confident that he is demanding what he is entitled to, and we are confident that Chelsea will eventually grant him his wish.’
‘Although there are rumors that Chelsea is already looking for replacements for Mount if he leaves the club, this is not true, and Chelsea does not want to lose the player.’
‘At the end of the day, he is one of the club’s most important players, and it would be a huge surprise if he did not agree to a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
‘A huge shock.’
