Chelsea keen on to agree new long-term deal with World-Class No.19 midfielder

By | March 30, 2022

Chelsea are looking to open discussions with Mason Mount over a fresh contract, according to the latest reports.

The Englishman’s existing deal expires in June 2024 and the player has become one of Thomas Tuchel’s key men.

As per Fabrizio Romano, the Blues are planning to begin talks with the player to ensure there are no problems with the player’s extension.

This comes after the west Londoners allowed Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger all to enter the final of their contracts.

It was stated back in November that both Mount and the club are yet to hold any negotiations over a renewal.

But Chelsea were expected to make contact with him at the end of the term, but there is understood to be no rush from either side to do so.

The plan is expected to be the same now, with an active end to the term expected as the club have a Carabao Cup final and are still involved in the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup.

Mason is thought to be prioritising winning titles at the club instead of focusing on a new deal as he previously spoke to a French outlet L’Equipe regarding his development and progress in the last 12 months.
