Mount has given Chelsea a MASSIVE hint that he will leave during the summer transfer window, and both Manchester United and Liverpool are ready to pounce.
Potential suitors for Mason Mount include Manchester United and Liverpool.
The 24-year-old England national team midfielder has a contract that runs out in June of 2024 and is delaying talks about a new contract.
It has been speculated that Mount would like a substantial increase to his current salary of around £80,000 per week.
Not wanting to make the same huge commitment as his countryman Reece James, he has been hesitant to sign a contract extension.
Mount has fallen in the pecking order since Chelsea has brought in so many new players.
There are reports in the Daily Mail that he has hired a new agent to represent him.
Mount’s business affairs are being handled by Wasserman Media Group’s Neil Fewings.
Moreover, the article claims that this is “the strongest indication yet that he is set to leave Stamford Bridge” at the end of the season.
Chelsea has insisted that their offer for a new contract is final and that they do not want to risk losing him for free in the upcoming year.
And with United and Liverpool poised to pounce on their academy product this summer, it’s possible they’ll try to cash in.
