Chelsea’s Mason Mount is reportedly keen to sign a new contract under the new ownership, write the ChelseaChronicle.
According to The I, Mount’s sole focus during a turbulent season at Stamford Bridge has been to remain a Chelsea player.
It is understood the 23-year-old wants to pen a contract extension under the new owners, too.
The report explains the Blues are preparing to give the England international a fresh improved deal that more than doubles his existing £80,000-a-week salary.
The Todd Boehly-led consortium has now received government approval to complete a Chelsea takeover, so let’s hope for some positive news on new contracts in the near future.
For certain, Mount’s a player in the Chelsea ranks fully deserving of a new mega contract.
The Blues academy graduate has grown into a real senior player in this squad during recent seasons, so deserves to be recognised among the best from a financial standpoint.
He finished the season with an impressive 13 goals and 16 assists across all competitions. The attacking midfielder won the club’s player of the season for a second consecutive year as well.
Mount is a go-to individual in Thomas Tuchel’s squad that should be a mainstay in the XI for years to come.
Mount has been named in Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad for upcoming Nations League fixtures, which seem extra important given it’s a World Cup year.
The Chelsea playmaker is an ever-present for his country that seems one of England’s more trusted players. However, he’s yet to really recreate some of his brilliant club form on the international stage. It’s a chance to change that in upcoming games, though.
Elsewhere, Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher and Reece James are also in the Three Lions squad.
