Todd Boehly takes a drastic decision about Mason Mount Chelsea contract situation; Here is what he did.
Mason Mount have been linked with a move away from Chelsea many times this season by the end of the season and also as a result of his contract situation not settled yet, it is getting increasingly possible that he will leave by the end of the season.
But Todd Boehly does not want him to leave in fact he is doing everything he can to get him to stay at the club for longer though.
Journalist Simon Phillips has now revealed that Co-owner Todd Boehly personally wants to keep the midfielder at the club and Mount is also prepared to find a solution that will keep him at Stamford Bridge.
Apparently, the two parties are currently far apart in terms of valuation as far as the new contract is concerned.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, he said: “As far as I know, as far as I’m told, Chelsea want to keep hold of Mount. Boehly personally wants to keep hold of Mount. Mount wants to stay at Chelsea. The big problem is, the terms are so far apart at the moment.
“Ultimately, that means that he could end up leaving. Chelsea have made it clear that they will sell players if terms can’t be met, rather than let them leave as free agents the year after.
“We could be looking at Mount leaving Chelsea this summer unless they are prepared to meet halfway, and at the moment they’re not. That’s why the talks broke down.”
The 24-year-old midfielder is demanding a significant pay rise and it will be interesting to see if Chelsea are prepared to pay up.
