The 2021/22 campaign for Chelsea will be one to forget for many. Although Champions League football was secured with relative ease, the lack of silverware combined with the problematic sudden sale of the club made the season extremely challenging for all involved.
However, through all of this there has been one constant, a shining light in the form of Mason Mount. The 23 year-old just registered his most successful return, bagging 11 goals and 10 assists from 32 matches.
His impressive performances not just this season, but over the last 3 at Chelsea has attracted interest in him from elsewhere. A surprising potential suitor has emerged in the form of Manchester United, with The Sun reporting that newly appointed boss Erik Ten Hag is very keen on the Chelsea and England star.
The United manager is reportedly monitoring Mount’s contract situation, with the player having two years left on his current deal at £88,000-a-week, a surprisingly low wage for a player of his quality in a squad full of players earning £100,000 plus.
The takeover of the club by Todd Boehly is another factor which is a potential spanner in the works, with it casting further doubt over the long-term future of Mason Mount in West London.
With the club in need of heavy investment in the Defensive areas this summer, it looks likely that they could choose to sell Mount to fund this. Liverpool and Manchester City already making enquiries over the Cobham graduate also makes a potential move seemingly ever-closer. Will we be seeing the England number 10 in a new club shirt next season?
