Paul Merson; Here is why Chelsea will not look back in their decision to sell Mason Mount.
Ex Arsenal player and star Paul Merson always gives his own insight into what he thinks is going to happen to teams and players and he has given another update on Mason Mount.
Here is what he said when asked if Chelsea will sell Mason Mount or not and why he think Chelsea will eventually sell him…
“Mason Mount was by far Chelsea’s best player last season. He was outstanding,” Merson said in his Sky Sports column.
“It’s different when you come through the ranks at a football club because you cost nothing. When you get bought for a lot of money you’re viewed as more of an asset.”
He added: “You don’t offload your best players. There are so many players that need to get shipped out of this Chelsea squad before Mount.
“The kid can play. It’s bad business by Chelsea – they should give him what he’s asking for.
“If Liverpool go and get Mount and then Jude Bellingham, who could also go to Liverpool, you’ve got a title-contending team.
“Why would you want to chance that if you’re Chelsea? Why would you make them stronger?”
