Mason Mount’s Chelsea future is in DOUBT with talks over a new contract on hold after the midfielder rejected an offer which falls significantly below their top earners
- Mason Mount’s future at Chelsea in doubt after new contract talks break down
- The England midfielder has 18 months left on his current deal at the club
- Mount rejected an offer from the Blues as it was below the other senior players
Mason Mount’s Chelsea future is in doubt with the two parties a long way apart on a new contract.
Talks with Mount were halted after the 24-year-old rejected an offer feeling it left him below what other senior players and new signings are earning at Stanford Bridge.

Negotiations are expected to resume at some point and will be an interesting test case for the new Todd Boehly regime.
Having spent more than £300million on players in January alone, academy graduates like Mount are keen they are seen as an important part of the future and not taken for granted.
