John Terry makes admission on "untold story" of Mason Mount's Chelsea exit to Manchester United
| Last updated
Mason Mount exited Chelsea this summer for Manchester United. departing the club where he came through the youth ranks.
The 24-year-old left Stamford Bridge after his contract at the West London club entered its final 12 months and there was no indication he would sign fresh terms.
United took advantage of the situation and swooped in to sign the England international, paying an initial £55 million for Mount, who signed a five-year contract with the option of an additional 12 months at Old Trafford.
However, Mount has played only twice so far for United and is currently sidelined due to injury.
Mount came through the youth team ranks at Chelsea, where he scored 33 goals in 195 games and won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup at Stamford Bridge.
He opted not to sign a fresh deal at Chelsea as new boss Mauricio Pochettino arrived at Stamford Bridge this summer, and has now headed to the North West.
Former Chelsea skipper and club legend John Terry hopes that Blues supporters give Mount a good reception when he returns to Stamford Bridge with United at the start of April in the Premier League, which is due to be his first trip back to his old club.
But Terry believes there is more to Mount's exit than has appeared in the public domain so far and claims to know the other side to the story.
However, Terry declined to open up on the player's departure, only saying that Mount is "proper Chels through and through" while urging supporters to not be 'too harsh' on him when he returns to Stamford Bridge next year.
Speaking to Knockout Events, Terry said: "Mase is proper Chels through and through. There's always two sides to a story and I know the other side to it.
"I'm not going to air that tonight but there's another side to the story. Let's not be too harsh on him when he comes back."
