Reports on the Blues’ attempts to extend Mason Mount’s stay at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea Transfer News:
Mason Mount has won Chelsea’s player of the year award twice. He contributed to the victory in the final and received a Champions League winners medal. He scored during the quarterfinal and semifinal matches leading up to the 2021 triumph. He participated in three FA Cup finals and finished second in the European Championships.
The 24-year-old holds a Carabao Cup runners-up medal and has been a champion of the world . Since he began playing for Chelsea at the age of eight, he has made nearly 200 appearances across three and a half seasons, contributing 33 goals and 37 assists. But his contract expires in less than 18 months.
The Blues’ attacking fulcrum of the 2021/22 season has a future far from certain despite his list of achievements in his still young career. For a player with his background it is remarkable to be in a place whereby he may not be a Chelsea for too much longer.
Despite the fact that Armando Broja, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Reece James all signed new contracts at the club under Todd Boehly‘s joint ownership, Mount has not yet made a decision. Major doubts now exist as he battles through his worst run of form since making his debut in 2019.

He can work out a deal to leave the club for free in less than a year. The most recent information regarding Mount’s contract and future plans is summarized below.
The Telegraph stated that continuing negotiations for a new arrangement had broken down in November. Later it was discovered that some Chelsea officials are resigned to losing him
The Blues will have until June 2024 to sign him to a contract, but they run the risk of letting it expire and losing out on any possible transfer value should he be sold before then.
According to The Guardian, Liverpool is making preparations to sign Mount if he chooses not to sign with Chelsea. When searching for new midfielders in the summer, Liverpool may look to Mount.

If a breakthrough is not made before the summer, Chelsea will need to make a crucial decision.
Chelsea wants to give Mount a new, long-term contract because they regard him as an important part of their future. James and Broja have both signed contracts that extend until 2028, while a slew of recent additions have contracts that keep them at SW6 even longer.
Though Boehly/Clearlake are eager to establish incentive-based deals, whereas Mount’s successes would often earn an instant substantial salary boost, the club’s new wage structure is becoming a problem.
