Ben Chilwell urges Mason Mount to stay at Chelsea after being spotted with teammate at Spanish GP

Ben Chilwell urges Mason Mount to stay at Chelsea after being spotted with teammate at Spanish GP

He's desperate for him to stay.

Ben Chilwell has urged Mason Mount to remain with Chelsea as speculation continues over his future at Stamford Bridge.

Mount, 24, is entering the final 12 months of his contract with the Blues and has rejected the offer of a new long-term deal at the club.

Mount is believed to be unhappy with the terms offered and wants his salary to match that of his England teammates, with the midfielder currently one of the lowest-paid senior players in the Chelsea squad.

Negotiations are ongoing between all parties but it appears increasingly likely Mount will move clubs this summer.

Manchester United are strong favourites to sign the midfielder after reportedly agreeing personal terms with him earlier this week, while Liverpool and Arsenal have also been linked with the player.

After being spotted with Mount at F1's Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday, Chelsea defender Chilwell said he hoped his teammate would reject a move elsewhere and remain with the Blues next season.

When asked to comment to on the transfer speculation surrounding Mount, Chilwell told Sky Sports: "That's none of my business.

"But personally, I would love him to stay. He's my best mate so personally I would love him to stay.

"But that's none of my business. I can't really comment on that."

Football Insider claim United are working on finalising the signing of Mount in the coming days.

The report claims he has already informed Chelsea he wants to leave the club this summer.

Chelsea are said to want £70m to sell their academy product after initially asking for £80m.

While United are yet to agree a fee, negotiations between the two clubs are said to be 'advancing'.

Mount is set to earn around £200,000 per week at Old Trafford, up from his current salary of £80,000 per week at Chelsea.

The offer of Champions League football at United next season is also said to be a 'big factor' in his decision to leave.
