Mason Mount was preparing to leave Chelsea if his treatment did not improve.


Mason Mount was preparing to leave Chelsea if his treatment did not improve.

Mason Mount has made an impression at Chelsea this season, and he began contract talks with the Premier League leaders in September in the hopes of increasing his weekly compensation of £75,000 pounds.

Mason Mount has been ‘frustrated’ and ‘underappreciated’ at Chelsea as a result of his treatment in comparison to other high-profile players.

In comparison to the mega-money stars brought into the club in recent years, the midfielder, who has been at Stamford Bridge since he was six years old, believes he is still being treated as a youth squad player.

And the Brinkwire Sunday understands if the England midfielder’s issues can’t be settled, then ultimately he would be prepared to leave.

“Mason is a top lad and well thought of within Chelsea, and is popular with the team,” a source close to the player stated. However, he no longer feels valued.

“He’s been at Chelsea since he was a small child, but despite coming through the academy, he doesn’t feel he gets the same attention or recognition as players who have been brought in for a large amount.”

Mount and Chelsea began contract discussions in September, despite the fact that his current deal, which he signed when he returned from a loan spell at Derby in 2019, has over three years left on it.

His current contract, for £75k per week, makes him one of Chelsea’s lowest-paid players, with reports that a new contract will see him earn twice as much.

And while everything seemed to be going well after he scored a hat-trick for Chelsea against Norwich on October 23, he had only played 28 minutes for Thomas Tuchel’s side until yesterday’s game against Leicester.

Mount came on for the final 23 minutes of a Carabao Cup encounter against Southampton before being left out of the matchday squads for the Premier League and Champions League games against Newcastle and Malmo, respectively.

After that, he went back to the bench against Burnley and came on for the final five minutes at Turf Moor.

Mount has previously praised Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, confessing that he watched them win the Premier League and even expressing his desire to play in front of the Anfield faithful.

“I chatted with a couple of the boys about playing there, and they say it is incredible,” he said.

“He is conflicted since he loves the club and the supporters, but he thinks it’s time for him,” the person continued. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
