Abramovich wouldn’t have made this same mistake Todd Boehly is making now with Mason Mount.
90Min have said that Chelsea are progressing on talks with Mason Mount over his contract situation and it is not looking like they are getting anywhere with it
Mount had been said to have rejected Chelsea offer and this has happened to make his future with the club very unpredictable at the time of this writing.
As per Givemesport, selling Mount would be “total lunacy”, as Chelsea continues their rebuild under new custodian Boehly.
But now, the journalist has drawn up comparisons to the previous era of ownership at Chelsea, suggesting this debacle wouldn’t have been allowed to play out.
Comparing both Abramovich and Boehly’s regimes, journalist Brown indicated that the former’s approach to contract negotiations would’ve seen this situation resolved much earlier.
On Mount, Brown told GIVEMESPORT: “It’s going to come down to whether Chelsea decide they can afford to let him go, because I think if Mason mount leaves Chelsea, he’s almost certainly going to go to a rival. And I know that under the Roman Abramovich regime, that would not have been allowed.
“I think Mount’s contract would have been sorted by now under the previous regime, whether they thought he was going to be a regular starter or not.”
