Chelsea (England) is more likely to end their 18-year partnership with midfielder Mason Mount (24) during the upcoming summer transfer window. It is reported that the recent discussion has completely stopped in a situation where an agreement on renewal of the contract, which has been going on since last year, has still not been reached.
The British media ‘Daily Mail’ said on the 12th (Korean time), “Chelsea has yet to find a breakthrough in negotiations with Mount to renew the contract. The contract has only 18 months left, but has been rejected one after another recently.” I will have no choice but to get off,” he said. 바카라사이트
According to reports, Chelsea are having a hard time closing the gap over salaries. Mount wants 240,000 pounds (approximately 367 million won), which is three times the current weekly wage, but he felt burdened by this and refused, and the renewal negotiations went back to square one.
In particular, Chelsea paid a large amount during the winter transfer market in January to reinforce the squad, and offered high-level salaries to the players recruited at this time. Representatively, Enzo Fernandez (22), who broke the highest transfer fee in the English Premier League (EPL), receives 180,000 pounds (approximately 275 million won). However, when he refused to pay Mount a huge annual salary, a conflict occurred in the process.
After all, Chelsea are even considering a breakup this summer amid the growing possibility that they will not be able to renew Mount. This is because the best scenario is to sell it during the upcoming summer transfer market, as the ransom price usually goes down when the remaining contract period enters one year. Already, the club’s board members are ‘giving up’ and even predict that they may not discuss contract extensions anymore.
‘Daily Mail’ added, “Some of the Chelsea board have already given up their minds when Mount has recently refused to renew the contract and has not extended the contract.” .
Mount is a Chelsea ‘sacred goal’ midfielder. He joined the academy in 2005 and has played exclusively at Chelsea, except for loan spells at SBV Peteser (Netherlands) and Derby Count (England). It was from the 2019-2020 season that he took his starting position in earnest. Since then, he has played 189 games in his career so far, posting 33 goals and 37 assists. He was even named Chelsea Player of the Year for two consecutive years in 2020 and 2021.
