Chelsea ace Mason Mount is having trouble renewing his contract.
England’s ‘Football Insider’ reported on the 13th (Korean time), “Mount is further away than ever with less than 18 months left on his contract with Chelsea. Negotiations are deadlocked.”
Mount is Chelsea’s ‘Holy Goal Youth’ midfielder. Mount, who showed outstanding potential from his youth, emerged as a key member under coach Frank Lampard in the 2019-20 season. He developed into Chelsea’s ace thanks to his versatile ability to score both creative passes, technical dribbles, goals and assists in the attacking midfield area.
In particular, he was loved by Chelsea fans enough to be called ‘the next Lampard’ because his playing style was similar to that of coach Lampard, who raised him. In his last season, he scored a career high with 13 goals and 16 assists. 바카라
Suddenly, the term of his contract came to an end. In the summer of 2024, it will become a free agent (FA), so from the point of view of Chelsea, it is necessary to renew the contract until the transfer market this summer.
But he’s having trouble with his weekly wages. Currently, Mount is receiving an absurd amount compared to his skills of 80,000 pounds (approximately 120 million won). He is below most players, including Kanichukue Mecca, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Christian Pulisic. It is a contract he had previously signed as a youth player. So when Mount signs this new contract, he doesn’t reveal his willingness to negotiate unless it’s a contract with a significant weekly wage increase.
He wants to rise to the highest rank in the team. Raheem Sterling is currently Chelsea’s highest paid player. Sterling is currently receiving £325,000 (about 500 million won). That’s more than four times the annual salary of Mount.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are approaching Mount as he struggles with Chelsea. Liverpool have a big hole in their midfield. As director Jurgen Klopp highly values Mount’s ability, there is also news that he will seduce him with a high salary.
